Early or Late?


This Dm tune is so lovely, and sounds wonderful whether played as a fast reel or a slow air, or anywhere in between. YouTube had many versions, but this is the one I chose to demonstrate the tune.

The guitar TAB Sgt. Early’s Dream is very simple and quite fun to play. I like to put a little lilt to it, which I learned from a really cool guitar friend. The 4th measure in the B part is my favorite section to play!

Here is the PDF with notation, chords and guitar TAB.

Sergeant Early’s Dream – Gtr TAB

There is now a practice video for Sergeant Early’s Dream! Check out the menu tab at the top of this page that says “Fiddle Tunes – PDF….”. There you will find all of the tunes featured on my blog¬†available on one page. There are also practice videos for some of the tunes.:)

So now is the time, whether early or late in the day, to pick up your guitar and learn a new tune. You’ll be glad that you did!

    The 7th measure in the B part is almost as cool as the 4th one… I like to play it late at night when I really ought to be asleep dreaming… But hey, playing music is as restful as sleeping, isn’t it?
