Today, you get to learn not one, but two jigs! These both are very common jigs. Tripping Up The Stairs is in the key of D, and Swallowtail Jig is in the key of Em.
As always, have fun learning these new tunes!
The tune of the day is The Road to Lisdoonvarna. It’s a happy little jig in the key of Em, which sort of sounds contradictory. Anyway, the tune is named after an actual town in County Clare, Ireland. Here is a link for a wee bit of information about it.
This is a pretty straightforward tune, so here is the notation and TAB – Road to Lisdoonvarna – Gtr TAB
Enjoy learning a new tune today!
Zipping right along here with some new tune additions while I have the chance! When school begins again, my time will be pretty limited.
The tune of the day is Down Yonder. It is in the key of G, and I’ve also heard it played in the key of D.
This is one tune that I had difficulty finding the notated music. Many in our local jam group knew it, but I had no music. So….here it is for those of you who enjoy having the notes written down… yonder…:)
It seems that everyone has their own version of how to play this tune! But, I found an example that plays it pretty much the way I’ve notated it here. Yay!
So, sit on the front porch and learn this old time fiddle tune!
