30 Tunes for Irish Fiddle vol. 3


In this 30 Tunes for Irish Fiddle article I have included many session ‘standards’. Session favorites will vary but many are well known. ‘The Blackthorn Stick’ is a great old sounding tune and composition as is ‘The Scotsman over the Border’. The ‘Hares Paw‘ is another reel that has made a resurgence recently. Get used to playing tunes in different keys. The keys of D and G should be relatively comfortable as should be A major. Look out for tunes with F naturals, more common on the E string(1st finger). You could practice the F scale to improve finger placement and tuning. Then look out for tunes with a B flat note, often in G minor. You will need to get used to these notes if you are to play more fiddle suited tunes.
