Dum Ta Dum Dum Ta

This pattern is a staple of mine, that I would use a lot when playing reels.  The “Dum Dum Ta” part should be used sparingly, and is good for emphasizing the end of a lower key part of a tune.  The below clip is a slow version of the pattern

I have also recorded a variatoin of this pattern accompanying the Slow reel by Damian McKee in the home practice player.  Its a little faster than the above clip but you should get the idea of how it sounds with a tune.  In this clip i emphasize the difference between the first and second part of the tune by using the following variation for part one:

Then part two is the above repeated four times.
