Happy New Year 2016

Happy New Year for 2016!

And here’s another tune: The Hut on Staffin Island (under H for Hut).

Written by Phil Cunningham and widely played and known… I think its not that hard and here’s hoping it will be fun to play together.

Our slow session has now been going for 2 years so I’ll order some brownies for Sunday afternoon… Hope to see you soon.

Best wishes and happy new year!


Added Three Ships

I’ve added Three Ships (following Kerfuffle in 5:4 but changed the key from E to D) which I hope makes it easier to sing as well as play… Jane transcribed the riff which some might like to play between verses, which has some nice chords if it looks a bit complicated.

I’ve updated the All Tunes Link for printing but put God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen on the page after Bitter Withy rather than in alphabetical order so that it might be easier to play as a riff to Bitter Withy, but it could gain its own page in the future.

If you don’t already have it, Kerfuffle’s Lighten the Dark (Amazon or iTunes-uk or iTunes-USA) will certainly brighten your Christmas carol season.

Three new tunes added

I’ve finally managed to add Nick’s discovery, Girl with the Blue Dress on… and start my homage to Kerfuffle with The Bitter Withy, with God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen as a riff… Soon (time permitting) I’ll add their version of Three Ships…

Updated Lucy Farr’s

Just to warn you that Jo changed his mind about one of the chords, so I’ve changed the Gm to a D (which I hope makes it easier to play) and updated it on the page and also on the All Tunes link for printing. Sorry for the short notice.

Added Lucy’s Farr’s

I’m hoping you’ll enjoy learning this one. It looks noodle-ly – (which is our expression for you have to remember where you are in the tune) but the tune itself is easy to play. I think if you listen to it first, it will be not so hard to learn as you think. Hope you enjoy!

Added Rights of Man

Not a difficult tune to find, but not quite so easy to play… anyway, by popular request (at March’s session), I’ve added Rights of Man. So sorry it’s taken me so long to finish putting it up… I ended up listening to many versions on Youtube trying to decide which ones to link to. Hope you enjoy.
