Here's some links/achive sites for fabulous fiddling!
"Blue Rose" by Swedish fiddler Karen Myers, with over 2000 tunes! (Thanx, GregW)
Another 434 Swedish tunes, 2638 Irish and 139 Misc tunes at - "Henrik Norbeck's ABC Tunes"
Even if you're not interested in the "American Nyckelharpa Assoc", here's 31 written tunes perfect for the fiddle!
I was wondering about blue rose cuz i didnt remember that page. but i see it has a link to http://www.folkwiki.se/ on it..lol does it pull up in English that way ?
I hit the mother lode of Swedish music!
...almost went into shock when I found all these & I've spent the last couple hours sampling tunes!
What a great site to get familiar with some Nordic music!
Scrolling down the Home Page, I found an unbelievable amount of Swedish tunes from each Province/County! There's sheet music pdf's AND mp3's, even andrastämma - which are duets arranged (along with more mp3's) from Stefan Linden, where he's added a 2nd voice to most of the tunes! I believe it says he used Finale software.
I see all the common dance music styles, PLUS some I've never heard of!
I found some Norwegian music in another section & all sorts of other pieces.... still looking!
...even though the site is in Swedish, I'm having a growing urge to try & contact him - just to let him know how grateful I am for this!
Found another fabulous site for Scandinavian Dance Music!
Folkets Hus Spillefolk - in English!
This collection consists of 3044 pieces music notation and 51 dance descriptions of mostly Danish dance and fiddle music.
Enhanced musical learning of recorded music
The music sheets allows for hearing the melodies, and some also have recorded music where you may slow down the playback speed without changing pitch, and set A/B points for learning of the melody small pieces at the time thus using to the “workshop method”.
You can search by type of Dance tune & and geographical area!
You'll find Repertoire lists & other lists, including Composers!
There are also some harmony parts and links to YouTube videos!
...I'm sure there's something here for everyone to learn to play! 🤗
