JimLucas Posted February 11, 2004 Share Posted February 11, 2004 "Ashokan Farewell" was mentioned under another Topic in another subForum. "Ashokan Farewell" is a fiddle tune. I said that it works very nicely on the English, though, and promised to try it on the anglo. I have now done so, and it works beautifully. I even found myself throwing in some harmony notes. And though I have the RH C# in both directions, I find that it works just fine if I restrict myself to either the push or pull C#. I have also tried it on Crane duet, where -- of course(?) -- it's also quite comfortable, though it's necessary to cross to the left hand for a few of the low notes (those below middle C). Similar story on the Maccann, though on most smaller Maccanns more of the melody has to be played in the left hand, since their lowest RH note is G above middle C. And I find it also fits nicely on the Pitt-Taylor duet (a system where I'm still a novice), with only the low G missing from the right hand. I guess this tune -- and actually quite a few others -- is well suited to just about any reasonable instrument. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
