    Here's a jig I like to play. Very easy to learn and goes well with many other tunes.
    On the new Jack Spira zouk, tuned GDAD.

    Sounds great, Kyle! We play this tune as Muenster Buttermilk, we may have another part to it, or play it a little differently, but basically the same tune...

    Kyle, great tune and playing but I'm confused (so what ELSE is new?). I copied the ABCs into TablEdit with normal tuning settings and the MIDI plays the tune just like yours. shouldn't the notes on the E string all sound one tone Sharp? or did you transpose the ABCs you posted to the non-standard tuning you used? I like to experiment with non-stand tunings, expecially on Guitar, so i'm curious how this works with the ABCs. If that don't make a lick o' sense, just ignore my iggerence

    I didnt read this .abc file... just found one on the session to share. I play it the way I heard it by Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny.

    The notes on an E string would be the same notes on an E tuned to D - the fingering would be different however, but the ABC would be the same...
  6. mculliton123
    Sorry, i convert the ABC to TAB so i would have to sharp all the E string notes by 2 frets if tuned GDAD?
  7. Eddie Sheehy
    No. You would have to TAB them sharp on a D string... The ABC is for standard tuning.
  8. mculliton123
    OK, that's what i meant, the E string is tuned down 2 tones to D, then add 2 frets UP on the TABS, gotcha! makes sense, sorta.
    Thx Eddie

    Great playing, Kyle. Boy howdy, does that zouk fill the room with sound or what? You must be breaking it in just right.

    Lovely stuff there Kyle, and your new bouzouki is sounding great!

    I know the Munster Buttermilk and the version I play is very different to this tune, some similarities though.

    Jill, I've seen notation for another tune called Munster Buttermilk that was different.... maybe I can get around to posting mine!
