New Tune Tonight.

Hi, tunesters. Tonight is the last tunes class before the National Folk Festival, and we will be learning "The Musical Priest" and enjoying a yummy supper.

Last week we spent the class working on tunes we have already learned, and getting them closer to session speed, as well as working on getting out of one tune and into the next to create a set. The tunes we played were "The Lark in the Morning", "The Glass of Beer", and "Miss Monaghan", and the jig set we worked on is "Willie Coleman's (G)/ The Black Road (D)/ My Darling Asleep (D)". It was all sounding terrific by the end of the night.

Its proving more difficult than I thought to get sound files of the tunes up, without having them all play at once when you look at the blog, so I'm working on that to make the blog easy to use. In the meantime, reminders of how all these tunes go are available at www.thesession.org.

See you at 7!
