Ringdans

Hello!
Today is a lovely little canon for #tunefriday. The second player starts at the beginning when the first player has reached '2nd player starts here'. The audio file is the full canon (four parts). The video teaches the tune. Below you'll find a break down of the tune section by section. At the bottom of the page you'll find the complete canon audio.
Enjoy
:)

The De'il Among the Tailors

Hello!
A reel today: De'il Among the Tailors - I remember this one being taught to my sister on fiddle. So here it is for nyckelharpa! It fits really nicely under the fingers in this key.
Enjoy

Olle's Födelsedags Låt

Hello!
Last week I fetch a new nyckelharpa from France. An Olle Plahn body / Annette Osann Keybox Oktavharpa. It's gorgeous, so of course I wrote a tune for it. Then I made an ensemble using all my Olle Plahn nyckelharpas and seeing as the first time Olle heard the tune was on his birthday I gave it the name Olle's Födelsedags Låt. The tune below is the result. The key I chose for the quartet is D, which is nice - but there is a nicer key, so in the dots video at the bottom I've included me playing it in G.
Enjoy!
:)
