I posted this on another thread but here's a cut and paste for those who might not have seen it.
I do a monthly Irish tune of the month on the Fiddle hangout, I can start it here on the mando hangout as long as there's some interest in it and you don't hang me out to dry for playing a 'tater bug.
It's NOT a contest though, just a chance for people to learn a tune and share it if they like. No pressure.
To select a tune, I generate a random number between 1 and 100 from random.org, that number is cross referenced with the top 100 most added tunes from thesession.org. This month I tried something different and just asked what people wanted to work on.
The focus is on traditional Irish dance tunes; jigs, reels, hornpipes not songs, waltzes and harp music (O'Carolan, Bunting etc).
I have looked around for something like Fiddle Tune of the Month on the mandolin, not specifically Irish (tune). I do admit I get lost / let Irish (or similar) tunes run together. I would like to give it a try and see if I can make some sense out of it. I have never participated in a "tune of the month" so I am not real sure what to fully expect either way.
Hi ya that's great idea. I posted a thread on a tune I learnt on the banjo and it's a cracking tune in the mandolin.its called.. Pressed for time.there us a band called flook in YouTube playing it! They play it very fast but I just get goose bumps with it.
