The Mountain Road

Today’s tune is

THE MOUNTAIN ROAD

I first learned this tune at our local jam, and it evokes pleasant memories of how fun it was to just keep on playing the tune that never ends.:) This is a pretty straight forward tune, with the exception that the A part is only played one time through, but the B part is played the traditional twice through. The Mountain Road was written by the famous Sligo fiddler, Michael Gorman (1895 – 1970) Here is some great information on him for those who are interested.

Here is the guitar TAB and notation – Mountain Road, The – Gtr TAB

There were not many videos of this particular tune, so I chose one that seemed to play it like we play it.

If you want a tune to just make you happy for awhile, this one is it! 🙂 Don’t forget to check out my page (at the top  this page) “Fiddle Tunes…”, where you will find not only PDF’s of all of the tunes featured on this blog, but links for all of the practice videos as well, including one for The Mountain Road.:)

Treat yourself, get your guitar, and see that you CAN do it!

Blessings
