Twin – niwT

Today’s tune is


In researching this fun little tune, I discovered that there are some vastly different interpretations out there!  The Fiddler’s Companion says that there are five known versions. This is the one we play at our local jam, as well as the one that I know, so that’s why I chose it. LOL

Here is the PDF with free guitar TAB and notation – Twin Sisters – Gtr TAB

Amazingly, this band from England, The Hollow Mountain String Band, plays it like we do! It’s hard to imagine that the tune has survived traveling across the ocean….or maybe it traveled to here from there?

There is also a practice video available for Twin Sisters done at a moderate tempo several times through! Just go to the top of the page, and check out the Fiddle Tunes tab. There you will find a complete list of tunes featured on my blog, with PDF’s and some practice videos. 🙂

It’s been a rainy weekend here in the Midwest, but music brightens the heart, so get out your guitar and try out this happy tune!
