Hi all! I haven’t posted in quite a while. I still lurk here and there, but just been quiet. 

This tune is just cute and simple. It is technically an AA BB fiddle tune, but with mainly one note change being the difference, lol. A nice one for practicing different ornaments on. I used it to work on my double stops, which I always feel rusty on.

Thanks, @JohnG ! Yeah I saw your comment and thought I needed to come back here. I don’t always do a lot of videos anymore, but trying to do them more now.

@ABitRusty Thanks! It was taught at Fiddle Frenzy, a virtual Irish fiddling workshop. I didn’t do the live workshop for this one, I was taking another one, but picked it when I was revisiting the files this past week. It’s on thesession.org under all kinds of names, so if this title is unfamiliar maybe you heard of it under another. This one just sounds better for spring, haha.

@damfino -  

What a wonderful Spring tune! 

You are sounding & looking FABULOUS!

...you always sounded great, but it's been a while & I, for one, really miss you here! 

Love how phrasing is different for a slide. 

Thanx, for sharing "The Apple Blossom Slide"!

@ELCBK Thank you! It is a fun spring tune :) I love learning all the different accents fiddle tunes have. I’m sure I could stand to emphasize it more in this tune, but it is a fun one to work on. So much freedom in it.

@Mark Thank you!

Thanks for the link! 

It's amazing the difference ONE word can make in a search! 

"The Apple Blossom" - no slide showed up, but with just "Apple Blossom" - Bedford Cross (Apple Blossom) showed up. 

...I'm not always so lucky. (lol)

@Scrap  & @SharonC Thank you! 

@ELCBK Haha, yes searches can be so weird. I think I found the sheet music page on the session doing a google search.

Thanks! I always wish I were farther along, but in general I’m happy with my progress.
