This cran may be playedon a dotted crotchetwhen it is preceded by aquaver of the same pitch.Though it is nearly alwayswritten as shown in thefirst two examples, andonly rarely as shown in thethird, this last is the bestnotation. The cran fallsinto two parts: the firstthree gracenotes are group-ed together with the grace-notes and melody notesnearly of equal length; thenthere is a deliberate pausebefore the A gracenotewhich should be strong anddistinct. The rhythm isdadadurn-dum. The cranis difficult to play at firstand it is easy to developthe faults referred to earl-ier; therefore the learnermust be careful to avoidslurring or muff ing thegracenotes.Some tunes where thiscran may be used are: TheKid on the Mountain part I,bars I, 2 and 3, (but notbar I when its repeated);The Munster Buttermilk allparts, bars 3 and 7; TheQueen of the Rushes part 1,bars I, 2, 3 and 5.E.G. ft(a)A gracenote:1234)6ADGDFDIt can also be introducedone gracenote at a time,beginning with the Agracenote and adding the Ggracenote. When these twogracenotes can be playedwith facility the thirdgracenote pr may beadded in.The second example is acran on a crotchet with nopreceding note of the samepitch. Again care must betaken that the melody notedoes not sound before thefirst gracenote of the cran.Its best to begin to learnthis cran by first playingthe A gracenote only andadding in the other two asfluency develops.*Several ideas in thesenotes came from a lectureon crans and triplets deliv-ered by Pat Mitchell at aTionl in Ennistymon, Co.dare in 1976 - by far theclearest discussion of thesubject yet.Robin Hickey,The Young Traveller,St. Marys Place,Dublin 7.Phone 305000PAIDIN C RAIFEARTATa brfste gan bhsta agPidIn 6 Raifearta,Casg gan cba ar PhidinC Raifearta;id lin a tigh phistI agPidIn C Raifearta,S dalaigh Peig Bhn lePidin C Raifearta.ForI Prki!
