Traditional Irish Music
Does anybody have any nice tunes they would like to share ?
I think it would be cool if we could get a discussion page going where people could come along and share tunes that they like and would like to learn so that everyone on it can be exposed to new tunes and expand on their repertoire.
I don't mind which type of tune it is at all, any type of tune is welcome even if it branches off to Newfoundland tunes, Breton tunes or Macedonian tunes, the more the merrier basically. Just anything to burst into at a session or just get the foot tapping.
Hi Jonathan. That's always a good idea. The problem is that there are too many damn tunes. I usually pick up tunes from the group of people that I play with. However here is a cracking hornpipe that I got from a music teacher in London years ago. Never tried learning it until recently as it looked a bit complicated. However its not so bad.

You can't go wrong with Maurice Lennon, I'd love to give this one a go but unfortunately I think there's a few sharps in it that I can't get on my keyless flute.
