Is that a 3 parter?
Man, you always pick the tuff ones to memorize!
Like it, though! 😊
The whole point of this thread is to get members to try a new Critter tune!
...think there's a Critter thread started in Country Genre for Old Time, too.
sigh...i thought a crow was a critter..maybe misunderstand..as far as tough..yeah i think all of these are challenging save maybe jimmy the o bu's which is the only one I can play..as far as white crow .. I do know its not an old time tune and is maybe cape brenton or scottish? not sure..here is the music that seems close to that recording
Yes, the Crow is a Critter!
THANK YOU for posting the "White Crow" - I've never heard it!
I just meant you don't have to already know a Critter tune, because I was hoping everyone would try to play a new one!
...and just meant there's also more Critter tunes in the Country/Old time Genre.
...even 1 in the Nordic Genre. (lol)
Squirrels on the run!
I might have missed out on/never run across this snappy Scottish Reel, except for this thread, cause I can't find any video or recording - just the 1 version of sheet music with sound from thesession.org!
"The Cat And The Mountain Squirrel", by Ian Muir - Craigellachie Band, in B minor!
Love this Cape Breton Jig, "Squirrel In The Tree" (aka. Squirrel Up A Tree) played by Ivan Hicks. I like the 3rd version of sheet music at thesession.org.
The rest of the cool Squirrel tunes I found are Old Timey, so I'll have to go find that Critter thread. 😊
Owls, what a HOOT!
Here's the "Barking Owl Reels" - at least the 1st one was written by Davydd MacDonald (AU), played by Davydd MacDonald on fiddle, Martin Reese and Chris Clarkson (Tawny). Sheet music for the 1st "Barking Owl Reel" is available at thesession.org
"Owlet's" and "Skibbereen Lasses", played by Joe Broughton's Conservatoire Folk Ensemble. Sheet music for Owlet's Reel is available at thesession.org
Here's a Métis tune (it's Canadian)!
"Grey Owl" by John Arcand.
"Grey Owl Fiddle Lesson" with Natalie Padilla.
I've been kinda lumping Métis tunes along with Newfoundland & Cape Breton Tunes here, if they sound a little more Celtic. I don't mean to offend.
Or, should I stick them with "Country & Old Time"?
Can't forget about Kitty Critter tunes, here!
Hadn't specifically looked for the Cat's Meow tunes at thesession.org, before today - turns out there are: many reels, jigs & hornpipes, a couple Slides & Barndances, a Three-Two and even a Polka!
Must learn this one! "The Cat Who (That) Ate The Candle", Emin Reel played by Féileacán.
Here's a fun, simple Jig in D mixolydian - "Huish The Cat", taken a step further by Horslips! Easy sheet music at thesession.org
Many alias for this Slide, "The Cat Rambles to the Child's Saucepan" - rolling score to follow (fiddle castro). Pretty Happy tune, but I LIKE it!
Great Tutorial by Caitlin Warbelow, little audio problems at the beginning (doesn't effect the tutorial).
Maybe try "The Cat's Meow" Jig, performed here by Sarah Loughran.
VERY COOL, minor/modal Jig - "The Cat in The Hopper", played by Mary Custy & Stephen Flaherty. I just might need to learn this today!
...one more to share in Country/Old Timey!
