Today’s tune is
Concertina Reel is a standard tune in the Irish repertoire. It’s amazing how many tunes I’ve learned that I can remember either who taught it to me, or where I was when I learned it. This one came from our local jam, again, and it was played by our accordion player. His wife plays the bodhran, and I always see the two of them sitting side by side playing and enjoying the music whenever this tune comes up. As an aside, the chords are easy, and the same progression for both the B part and A part. Some notation that I found uses an A for the Bm, but I personally enjoy the Bm that our group uses.:)

This video of Concertina Reel caught my attention because it was a session in Spain! Also, don’t forget to check out the page (tab at the top of this one) “Fiddle Tunes-Free PDF…” where you will find a list of all of the tunes featured on my blog here all on one page, as well as links to practice videos of some of the tunes. Keep checking back – I add more as I have time!
Concertina Reel is simple tune to learn on the guitar, so take the time to work on it. You’ll be glad that you did!
