Reply To: Day 5 – Fiddler’s Green
Fiddler’s Green is not on the Fiddlehed site, but it would be a great teaching tune either late beginner or early intermediate.
– Key of G major
– Fairly simple chord progression using G, C, D chords and one E minor
. E minor chord is (E-G-B). C chord is (C-E-G), so I used E-G double stop for both (G0-D1). Not sure if that is best choice, but sounds okay.
– 3/4 time
– Written with a lot of quarter notes, so there is a lot of opportunity to improvise your own ‘lilt’ as you go along
. e.g. play some bars with quarter notes and others with dotted-quarter–eighth–quarter swing, etc.
I have the sheet music with chords and lyrics in PDF, but I don’t know how to attach it here. I’ll send you a private message with my email address. If you want, send me a note to my email and I’ll shoot over a copy for you.
