I am still largely stuck in the world of fiddle tunes?

Do you use an intro for a particular key? / Do you have a couple of stock endings for a particular key?

I am looking for two or three intros & endings for the keys of A, D & G.

Is there a website with this or do you have it in TAB?

Chris I am lucky I play with an Old Time Fiddler (great on bluegrass too!) who is a walking encyclopedia on fiddle tunes and he has me addicted to fiddle tunes too right now so I know how you feel.

Man that guy knows more endings and intros than I could every learn in my lifetime but I will say that a lot of songs use the basic "shave & a haircut" and "potatoes" intros and ending and you just add your own flavor to them.

The variations are INFINITE!

good luck! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mandosmiley.gif
