Barry, I noticed that the tab and the dot music is in different keys and somewhat different notes. I am guessing that is how it is with old time music and when you put them together they sound good. I changed the tab into dots on lines. I find it easier to read it that way. The notes I can play but the way you bow and add yourself to the tune I have trouble with. I have two left feet and two left hands.
I guess Mr Price won't be taking up on Fiddlermans chin rest try-before-you-buy idea, Lol
Mr Price is an example of a true old time fiddler, they played on their chest so they could "call" the dances as well.
With a singing voice as bad as mine, I'm glad to dump my chin on the rest ASAP, as an excuse not to have to join in.
I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!
I figured it out Naska. The lines you circled mean they are 1/8 notes and the number is the finger you use and the horizontal lines are the strings you play. If it's just one line not connect to another it's a 1/4 note. and the L and the means Low and the H means High. It made4 sense to me if it was Key of DM. If I'm wrong I'm sure Barry will let us know.
