Old Grizzly Our Eightsome Reel set (32) RE: Our Eightsome Reel set 03 Feb 11

Most tunes can be played 'all on the black notes' ... if you dare incur the wrath of the Anglo/Melodeon player :-)

Will, I quite appreciate you wishing to play this set as it would be 'north of the border' so no criticism there, but as a general rule, I much prefer to play far fewer tunes and really explore and work them a bit more.

It always seems a shame to me when you have got a crackin tune going on that really fits the dance, to have to leave off after only two or three times through to go on to another that does not fit quite as well.

Many tunes would 'do', but as has been said, the real skill is in selecting the 'right' tune to fit the dance

whatever you play ... enjoy!
