@GregW -

Hmm Thinking Here Smiley

You got me thinking I'd better take a 2nd look at "Frank's Reel". 

Some of these, played fast, don't set right with me because I have to listen too hard to be able to distinguish an "A" from a "B" part, if any! (lol)

I did find this particular tutorial (slowed in last half) really cleared things up for me!

 

One missed accent, the whole thing just runs together... like "Brenda Stubbert's Reel".giphy.gif

Here's Tara Lynne Touesnard - playing nice set of Cape Breton Strathspeys & Reels, starting with "The Haughs of Cromdale". 

 

Here's the "Fine Tuners" (Andrew Touesnard & Steve MacNeil) playing "Pretty Peg & High Reel" with A=432hz! 

 

I just had to show this practice set video by Andrew Touesnard.  Watch his hand when he plays the tunes fast (when you can see it) - I have NEVER seen vibrato like this!  Gives new meaning to "vibrating"! 

"Green Grow the Rashes O" - Tutorial by Kimberly Frazer (also has a video on how to do the Cape Breton "Cut").

liked how Andrew put the time markers in the description.  makes it easier to go to each listing.  he does have that vibrating vibrato thing going on huh.
