Aloha everyone,

I was on YouTube looking for performances of song either for which I have sheet music or those I would like to transcribe.  I came across a wonderful fiddler, Fiona Cuthill, who has videos for beginner and advanced fiddlers.  The one thing I really like is that she plays the tunes at normal speed, then slows it way down and plays it a second time.  That way, you can see how the tune is to be played.  I just thought some here might want to take a look at a couple of her videos.  

Check out her YouTube channel 

EDIT: She is associated with the Glasgow Fiddle Workshop, so not all of the tunes are Irish.  She has a couple of videos of her own tunes.  I'm going to transcribe some of them and see how I get along.  I'll keep y'all updated of my transcription progress.

Thanks for the post - I checked  out her "Liverpool Hornpipe" - I found separate sheet for it - but it is (slightly) different.   So, I'm just working on her version by ear.....  We'll see how it goes !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.  

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
