And its GOLD in the Ring! Plus the Colliers Reel.

The Gold Ring in all its seven part glory has been thoroughly played by Maleny Tunes Class last Wednesday night. If you weren't there and want to catch up, all the parts are below, with the usual instructions on how to listen to a horrid midi file of them as well!!

The other great achievement of the night was the Collier's Reel. By special request and most unusually, the dots are attached as a gif below. The versio
n is based on the playing of Joe Fitzgerald, a Clare box player from Melbourne.

Regular super-slow-paced classes are now a feature of Maleny Tunes Class, and run simultaneously with the intermediate class. There will definitely be a Slow and Supportive Class on Tunes From the Vault night (the second Wednesday of the month, this week) and on CĂ©ili Practice Night (the fourth Wednesday of the month), and there may be a slow class every week if there is the demand. The patient and encouraging Tania Owens will be teaching regularly, ensuring more and more people start to enjoy playing Irish tunes.
