Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the fecking chords to The Earl’s Chair again?

 

There are no fecking chords, dammit. Irish music is melodic, not harmonic.  Sigh. Ok, just start with Bm. Jump around to G a little bit, end up on a D.

 

 

Q: What’s the difference between a single jig, double jig and a treble jig?

 

Um, lots. Or really, not that much. Depends. The dances are different.

 

 

Q: Did you turn off the immersion?

 

Oh damn. Ta, back in a minute. 

 

 

Q: Why would a purportedly benevolent and all-knowing Creator knowingly create a soul like Hitler, when Hitler was just going to end up writhing in the pits of hell for all eternity? Isn’t that rather sadistic?

 

Foreknowledge is not synonymous with predestination; Hitler possessed free will and was therefore responsible for his actions. Another theory holds that God is not necessarily benevolent at all, and in fact is quite angry with us, his most wayward creations. Sorry, that’s the best I can do based on eleven years of parochial school. These are Frequently Asked Questions, not Definitively Answered Questions.

 

 

Q: I’d really like to give someone a session-themed gift.

For real, not this fake crap. Any suggestions?

 

Yer man Pete Strickler, aka Reverend on thesession.org, has some pretty sweet swag here.
