Rusty Gully

I have a soft spot for this 3:2 hornpipe Rusty Gully because it was one of the first tunes that I learned by heart – the finger pattern repeats itself in the B part on another string so it’s easy to learn on the fiddle… I hope you find it straightforward too.

I’ve found a variety of versions on Youtube… mostly a bit fast but some slow ones too:

Accordion and fiddle
Northumbrian pipes and guitar (from 1.07)
The Good Tune playing it really well

And some slower versions:
Accordion (and played very slowly the second time)
and another ensemble playing




As this is a good tune to start learning tunes by heart, here’s a viola version too so that all clefs are covered.
