Nice little tune, this one... and can be kept simple or ornamented as desired...

Out of interest - the score used for the above was directly from the arrangement by "Peakfiddler" - and here he is giving a full speed rendition, plus a slower walk-through...

Thanks @mookje - I post a number of different pieces in score-form that I'm working on - nice to get feedback !   Glad you like it 🙂   It's quite a simple piece, have fun !  And if you get your hands on MuseScore ( freeware under the GNU / common attribution licence ) you can take the .mscz file in one of the earlier posts and adjust the tempo for play-along.    Enjoy !

@Heinrich - indeed it is an "interesting" bow hold - and - it just goes to show that not everything is as it seems or has some prescriptive idealology like "this is the way to hold the bow" - peakfiddler actually has a separate video talking exactly about this, and how his bow-hold came about - in fact, on his YT page where the video is, I left a comment...  here it is Heinrich - 

🙂

Thanks for the information Billy. I must practicing on faster speed but still find it very difficult, can’t play from my wrist yet. So I often play slower and add some extra notes ?

🙂 extra notes can be good !  ( in the right place of course ! ) - that's what fiddling is all about - you "make it your own" but it is still recognisable as the original tune...  cool !

Speed will come with time and practice - it is not an ultimate goal really - technique and control - well in my opinion - come first...   Although of course - it's always great to listen to a player doing a fast jig, reel, hornpipe, whatever really cleanly - lovely and great to watch the rapid left-hand fingering.. and you think - like - WOW !  - just HOW did they do that ? LOL  🙂

Nice reel @BillyG
