gcoover Posted July 19, 2015 Share Posted July 19, 2015 I'm pleased to announce a brand new tunebook of traditional Irish tunes, all in standard musical notation and also with the same easy tablature for Anglo concertina used in my other books. Featuring a mix of 75 favorite reels, jigs & slides, hornpipes, polkas, slip jigs, airs and a few miscellaneous set dances and waltzes typically found in Irish sessions. Attached is the Table of Contents plus an example page for "The Lilting Banshee". Every tune has a graphic showing which buttons are used, and about half the tunes can be played with a 20-button instrument. Irish flute maker and player Hammy Hamilton was nice enough to give his permission to include his jig "The Woodcock". It turns out the version played by Teada is quite different from his original, so just for fun both are included. There are also two versions of "Wind That Shakes the Barley" since Mrs. Crotty's octave-style version is so unusual. And Emily Peterson (YouTube Concertina Hornpipe Project 2010) gave her ok to include her arrangement of the hornpipe "Plains of Boyle". Sorry, there are no big discussions or lessons on ornamentation - this is more about learning the basic tunes first. It's already on Amazon UK, US and Europe, will probably be available at the Button Box fairly soon. I'll let you know when Amazon's "Look Inside" preview feature is activated, usually takes a week or two. Enjoy!
