I'm happy for you, Barry. Irish tunes are beautiful.
And I'm agree that you're lot more connected to it playing Irish tunes, as I saw in your posted vids since a while back.
My learning journey so far only has several tunes, and by accident, pretty much all of them are Irish tunes.
Looking forward to hearing lot more tunes from you.
Thanks Barry! Love it. I am up watching the video. With my coffee...trying to get the wine webs out of my brain.
I think I have to learn the Gavotte in the suzuki 1 book first. And work or a lot more. I'd like to think that by the time I go to play that song, I don't murder it.
Still I work on Thaxted today. It is so beautiful.

Two tunes I love are Calin Mo Ruinsa and Will Ye Gang To Kelvingrove. I can send you the music to them. They are Scottish in origin but sweet tunes.
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
My music is mainly 60's and on back. I am working on Dr. Zhivago, "Somewhere My Love" and Unchained Melody and Autumn Leaves.
I am looking for Harlem Nocturne, Sentimental Journey, Zippity Do Dah, I'll be Seeing YOu, Canadian Sunset, It's a Small World, Yesterday, Stardust,Let it Be, and mostly,,Exodus.
Agreed, Barry. You have to find the genre(s) that talk to you and feel like home. Other than maybe if you're taking a class and it is required classwork, there's no percentage in putting a lot of time or effort into the ones you don't like playing or can't see yourself playing. Your heart just won't be in it. Life is too dang short for that.
