Highly Strung Sets of tunes and Play Lists

Contact Jill:   jillyelliot@gmail.com or ring 01275 847909 or 07515 904 707

 

For tunes and tune sets go to A-Z index where you will access a slow solo recording, manuscript for one tune, fiddle tab, mandolin and tenor banjo tab, whistle fingering, a faster recording of the tunes in a set and the manuscript for the set of tunes including chords for accompanists.
If you are a beginner try the easier tunes to get you started.  There is always a steady stream of beginners and new band members so there are plenty of people in the same boat as you who are a bit daunted when they see such a long list.  When we play for a dance we only use a small selection of these tunes and for most events you will be given a set list.

Also look at the tunes we have learned recently in each group by visiting the relevant group classes page eg Monday morning, Wednesday evening - click on the links on the left hand contents strip for each group to see what they have been learning.

Highly Strung Tune Sets (with chords) for barn dances and events
A list of tunes in sets is available for regular attendees of the groups and those who also play in the Highly Strung Community Band.  If you would like a copy please e mail me - jillyelliot@gmail.com
