The tune of the day is
This fiddle tune is often spelled Daley’s Reel. It is normally played in the key of Bb, which is fine for the mandolin or fiddle, but the chords are not as fun for a guitar player, so I’ve transposed it to the key of G, and you can put your capo on the 3rd fret to put it into the key of Bb! Or….you can just enjoy it without the capo in the key of G. This tune has long been on my list to learn, and the other day, I decided that It Was Time to do it!
Here is the guitar TAB and notation – Dailey’s Reel – Gtr TAB
I chose this version from the YouTube offerings because it is done a bit slower than some and is very similar note-wise to the notated music here. There is an awesome Bryan Sutton flatpick guitar version as well.
As always, you know I’m going to say, “Get out your guitar and run through this a few times.” You’ll be glad that you did!
