Thread: Warm up song

    I try not to use the same music for warm-ups. The warm-up tune doesn't get the same quality of attention, so I try to spread that out.

    Yes, and warming up is not practicing, or shouldn't be.
    Life is short, play hard. Life is really really short, play really really hard.

    Yeah, but I start my practice session with a bit of play, a couple of tunes I know and like, to get me in a musical mood before I start to practice. I then work on tunes or techniques, I break every now and then to "play." There's a bit of a reward system there.

    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."

    Not a defined one but it seems that I will use the same one for months on end and then move on to another one. Some that have been in the warm up rotation recently: Swinging on a Gate, Big Scioto, Flowers of Edinburgh, The High Road, The Fun's All Over, Johnny Don't Come Home Drunk. I also do the Carlo Aonzo scales or various major scale exercises

    Really simple stuff: Amazing Grace, Wildwood Flower, Old Joe Clark and then move on to O'Carollan's Blind Mary and then Ashokan Farewell. As I start to flex those fingers some more, I move on to bluegrass--Salt Creek, Big Mon, and and the like.
