The Clog Branle

Hello!
Another nice and simple tune for #tunefriday this week. A tune that only needs a few notes and can be played in lots of different keys really easily. There's a dance to it too. Maybe I'll video that some day!
Enjoy!

Trolll├ąten

Hello!
A very special tune for this weeks #tunefriday. The A part is on the A string, the B part is on the C string and the C part is on the G string. So it can either be played as a round, or it can be played one instrument, four players. Cool huh! I'd love to see videos of people giving this tune a go.....
Enjoy

The Drunken Piper

Hello!
It's #tunefriday. We have a pipe tune this week. The Drunken Piper, it's a strathspey. It's wonderful to play with a C string as there is no need to do a string crossing to get down to the leading note.
Enjoy!

Andy Carey and Drops of Brandy

Hello!
Today's #tunefriday is also a video from the archives, two tunes played through. They're slipjigs with three beats in the bar - Andy Carey's and Drops of Brandy. (In the video I counted two beats in, it should be three really and I'm not sure why I only got as far as two!)  Really great for practising string crossing!
Enjoy!
