BUT THERE ARE ALSO CHORD ARRANGEMENTS INCLUDED WHICH MAY MAKE IT EASIER ON THE EYES FOR GUITAR, BOUZOUKI OR CITTERN PLAYERS. WHILE IT IS CUSTOM TO PLAY EACH TUNE TWICE OR RATHER THREE TIMES, MOST TUNES WERE PLAYED ONCE ONLY BECAUSE OF THE SHEER VOLUME OF TUNES. HOWEVER, SOME TUNES WERE PERFORMED TWICE. ANOTHER FEW WERE PRESENTED WITH BODHRAN ACCOMPANIMENT. THE TUNE FLOWERS OF RED HILL (SINGLE REEL) WAS PLAYED THREE TIMES BECAUSE OF ITS VARIATIONS. EACH TUNE IN THE SET SPORTING PADDY - MAN OF THE HOUSE (SINGLE REELS) WAS REPEATED THREE TIMES AS WELL. THE REEL MASONS APRON WAS PLAYED WITH FOUR VARIATIONS. (SEE: MP3 DOWNLOAD TRACK TITLES).
