  1. Re: Some great resources for Irish trad players...

    Just to mention a few other resources which I've found particularly useful over the years.

    Bill Black's Cape Irish website ... fantastic resource for browsing for tunes, both very well-known and...
  2. Re: Some great resources for Irish trad players...

    Thanks to Jon for allowing me to play mandolin alongside his excellent flute playing to add a little interest to one of my recent tune learning videos in my YouTube channel. (I deliberately added my...
  3. Re: Some great resources for Irish trad players...

    You too? I get it. Either they race ahead or they fall behind or sometimes they just introduce a random beat to throw me off-track.

    Re: Sixpenny Money

    Hi Ed. I was lining up Sixpenny Money as one of the tune learning resources and, seeing your post, I bumped it up the list. "Dots", tab and sound file are all available at the "learn some tunes...
  5. Some great resources for Irish trad players...

    Just flagging a website which I came across recently which I've found really useful.

    Jon Antonsson, a flute player from Sweden, has some terrific resources at his website...
  6. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Hi Paul... He is, indeed, enjoying life in Manchester. Even though he's in lockdown, he at least has the ability there to socialise with the people in his house. so he feels less lonely than he...
  7. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Hi Paul...

    Apologies for not replying sooner.

    As chance would have it, my son lives in Manchester at the minute where he's studying and so - in non Covid times (remember them? even vaguely?) -...
  8. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Sorry I haven't replied sooner, Bren. Can't keep up with life at the moment! I'd strap in if you're going to give the podcast a listen - it's a lengthy ramble! But do please let me know what you...
  9. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Thanks so much, Greg, for the kind words. Much appreciated. It was quite nerve-racking prior to doing the interview. Darren explained beforehand that his approach is very unscripted and the...

    Re: Surviving Lockdown

    You may indeed, sir. But I don't want to hijack your thread. So 'nuff said about that here. This is about you and the other guys in the band. Savage players, altogether!

    Re: Surviving Lockdown

    Bravo that mystery man. (We've had the joke before about Mister E... let's not go there again. "But you just have!" Sorry. "And it wasn't particularly funny first time round." I know. "And yet...
  12. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    There's most definitely some unexpected angles in this particular one... it's an unscripted conversation which, just like conversations "in real life" sometimes take all manner of twists and turns...

    Let's hope my contribution doesn't spoil your grá for the series, Jill. ;-)
  14. Re: The Celtic Mandolin - Tunes for January

    I'm delighted to have made John's acquaintance and to have had a few email conversations with him over the course of the past few days. A lovely start to 2021 - to meet someone, albeit online, with...
  15. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    I'm really excited to say that I was asked to take part in the excellent Blarney Pilgrims podcast. I chatted and played a few tunes last week and the podcast is now available for listening. Beware...

    Re: The Wind That Shakes the Barley

    Good point, Max, that the newcomer to this music should probably tread a tad carefully when checking out settings at The Session. Some are settings which are instrument-specific, some are...
  17. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    I've added a new page to the site.

    Those who follow my Twitter feed (a mere handful, tbh) which kicked off in November 2020 will know that now I've got rhythm going there, most days I post a link...
  18. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    I was talking to a fiddler friend a while back. It turns out we were both at a gig by The Gloaming at the Union Chapel in London a few years ago (although we didn't bump into each other at the...

    You're not wrong there, Jill. A gentleman and (literally!) a scholar. I'm very fortunate to have made his acquaintance, regardless of the gift he made me. Simply being able to share our mutual...
  20. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    I managed - with some considerable expenditure of time and effort - to complete the "re-tabbing" exercise I referred to in my post of 10th December. And I've even managed to find time to add a few...

    Hi Pete

    Sorry for only just getting around to commenting now; I've been meaning to chip in my tuppence worth for a few days.
