  1. Hi! Just a heads up – “Frosty Morning variation” is missing the section with the full play-along tracks/sheet music! The full play shows up in the TuneFinder but it’s not on the song page under “Full Content” ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Thanks! I still don’t see anything, it just says:

        Full content

        Below you will find full play-along tracks with fiddle at high and low volume (so you hear yourself more), full tabs, and full sheet music.

        I will try a different browser?

  2. I found three little birds on YouTube but Iโ€™m having trouble finding it on fiddlehed in the lessons . Tune finder says no matching record for three little birds. I know itโ€™s in here somewhere , itโ€™s on youtube . I know itโ€™s probably operator error (not the most tech savvy one n the bunch haha). And thanks again for all the work you do.

    1. Hi Tracy, great point. I also see Jason’s lessons on youtube but can’t see anything on the Fiddlehed site. We’ll make note of this and try to get it put up on the site soon. Thanks for your feedback, it helps alot ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Can I suggest one of the most popular Canadian tunes to add: Maple Sugar by Ward Allen. It is complex enough to deserve a lesson on it and most people recognize it. It was a radio hit in Northern Saskatchewan in the ’50s but it is still well known.
    There is a whole genre of French Canadian Reels that would be fun to see on the site if you ever have a chance.
    Thanks for all the work you do to find interesting fiddle music!

  4. I appreciate all the work that goes into these. I wonder if you have tabs written where there is a bowing patter for these songs? From what I understand, having the correct bowing pattern makes all the difference in the phrasing of the song.
