Irish Hornpipe in G Aeolian

Here’s an intermediate lesson on how to play this haunting Irish hornpipe. I learned it from a Martin Hayes recording called “Under The Moon”.

This tune is recommended for students in Module 2.6 or higher. It’s a good way to practice the G Aeolian scale, Low Fourth Finger and the swing feel.
