Hi all,

Here is my attempt at an old Irish set dance tune, King Of The Fairies, still lots of mistakes. Will be improving after some yrs.

Thanks all.

Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement, @coolpinkone, @Ginnysg, @Steve, @StoneDog, @fiddlerguy, @Teapot, @KindaScratchy.

 

Here is the sheet music in pdf that I learned from. A quick note that I gathered. As common to these aural traditional musics, the notation was transcribed from players with influences from styles, regional, etc., and in it is the tune melody along with ornamentation hence variations between versions. Ones can pickup the melody first and then spice it up (with ornamentation such as rolls, triplets, slide, etc..) to their tastes or to fit/sync to others players/backing rhythm.

Thanks again,

Robert

Sorry Robert that I am late on this post, but I thought I had already commented here, then realized that my comment was direct to you in the chatango box the other night.

Great playing, great tune. Very nice job for such little time spent on it.
