I have started to try to add ornamentation to my fiddle tunes as Emily advised, don’t know if they are any good but I think it makes them sound slightly easier on the ear. You will notice I have problems with f sharp😂

@stringy -

So nice you've been working on this - I love "Joe Cooley's Reel"! 

Think it's great you've been adding ornaments.  The double stops were a nice touch and I think the rolls, etc... are very important here. 

I learned Cooley's from a Duncan Ross Cameron video tutorial on YouTube, where you can see a close up view of his left hand (plays once up to speed, then follows slower).  

I also like Kevin Burke's version - and still mean to take a closer look/learn his, too. 

Thanks for sharing another great O'Carolan tune!
