  1. woo-boy, i sure don't get this new format. crystal: good to see you again! hope you're doing well. i was sorry to hear about your dad. haven't had a chance to lurk on posts. been real busy. still have my e-mail? if not, i'll send it. catman: thanks. yes, alot of what you've said is what i've learned in my search for simple guitar chords. i.e. there's usually no such thing. i'd be very interested in learning all this but unfortunately i'm so busy trying to learn to fiddle, that i don't have the time to work on guitar. candace: thanks. that's exactly what i was looking for. wish there were more sites like that.
  2. would some celtic guitarist be so kind as to help me with some tunes? i've got a chance to play with a good guitarist with a strong folk background and it really throws me for a loop when a modal song gets back-up with a I-IV-V major progression. i can't find any sites that have just back up chords for celtic tunes. i don't need the music written out, if any one could just write them out for me separated out into lines and parts (like a and , i can figure out where they go. i'd like chords for these tunes: Golden Castle Celtic Society's Quickstep 42nd Highlanders Cooley's Gravel Walks Knocknagow thanks!

    looks like i shoulda left a month later.... enjoy and be blessed!!! p.s. miss ya! i was thinking about you today when i was playing through a list and saw the song title "NOT the Irish Washer Woman".
  6. Yankee; HOWEVER you do what you're doing, i wish i could do as well. i like to print out the music when i've got the general feel of the song but i'm in too big of a hurry to commit it to memory (like Yankee says 'it's faster'). but i also notice that if i learn something by ear i don't have to wait to memorize it (i guess cos it's already done by then). Newfie: a case i can cite where learning by strictly reading came out better than learning by ear is some clips i've got of violon's. they were from a CD/book set 'Fiddler's Philharmonic'. i ordered the CD later, hoping there would be more tunes on there to learn and 'lo and behold!' what he had done with the songs by strictly reading them and not bothering to listen to the CD were immeasurably better than the professional fiddler on the CD! go figure.

  7. got this tip from Gary. bought enough CD's to last me for a year. http://www.greenlinnet.com/ most are $10.00, some are $5.00.
  8. Finnegan's Wake and Lannigan's Ball (inspired by Violon) Tam Lin and Temperance Reel (inspired by Gary)
  9. Callie: what do you mean when you say 'Celtic Fiddle Fest CD's'? is there a series of them? the Green Linnet link makes it sound like that's just the 'best of' a fiddle fest collection.
  10. Father John McLeod's Jig....still don't have a handle on that on...or maybe it's just me. crystal? what do you think?
  11. the difference between a violinist and a fiddler... violinists: http://fingerboard.maestronet.com/ubb/Foru...TML/008427.html fiddlers: http://fingerboard.maestronet.com/ubb/Foru...TML/008434.html
  12. sorry, don't recognize the tune, it's very pretty though. and your website is VERY well done!
  13. crystal: that sounds awesome!!! what a variety of instruments! what more could you want? what skill level are the fiddlers?
  14. staylor: is this the one you wanted? http://fingerboard.maestronet.com/ubb/Foru...TML/005684.html
  15. sd: i think he meant this... http://fingerboard.maestronet.com/ubb/Foru...TML/002790.html
