SARAH  ARMSTRONG

This is an old fiddle tune that seems to be pretty popular in lots of places, and is another one of those cross-over tunes. You can’t go wrong learning this tune. It is pretty straightforward in the key of D. In tabbing this one out, I stuck to the basics except in the triplets in both the A part and the B part. In my experience, playing the triplet the way I tabbed it is easier than utilizing the open B string for the B note. Try it both ways, and play the way that suits you. ūüôā

Here is the TAB: sarah-armstrong-gtr-tab

As always, grab your guitar and try it out!

My Love is in America

The tune of the day is

MY  LOVE  IS  IN  AMERICA

There are actually two pieces of music with this same title, but one is a fiddle tune and the other is a ballad type of song. My Love is in America is a common session tune that is¬†interestingly modal, but not. It uses a C natural in the A part, and switches to a C# in places in the B part. Either way, it has a really cool sound, and it’s not hard to play at all.:)

Here is the guitar TAB and notation – My Love is in America – Gtr TAB

I found My Love in in America paired here with Cooley’s Reel. I think I like it!

Now you know what I’m going to say……instead of sitting longer at the computer, log off, get your guitar out, and work on this great tune. You’ll be so glad that you did!
