Reply To: Beginner Level
Now I’m working on level 1.9. Along the way I’ve learned some things I didn’t know – quite a few actually. After practicing tunes I wasn’t too sure about at first I discovered some were growing on me, especially Soldier’s Joy. I seem to keep returning to that one every day, not sure why. Today I think I’ll get back to the Old Grey Cat. Those two should be good for today.
While I really love Irish music and they were the reason I took up fiddle in the first place, I realistically don’t expect to ever be able to play most jigs and reels. My brain can’t move fast enough to coordinate my two hands is what I’ve discovered. For some reason I find hornpipes easier and more fun to practice.
