Enhance your Irish session repertoire with this useful book of popular Irish tunes. It follows the usual session format of lots of reels, some jigs and a few hornpipes. Learn these ‘session friendly’ settings as written and you can be confident of having accurate versions. The music here is suitable for all melody instruments and includes chord symbols.
All the tunes in this book are again firm session favourites, particularly the reels. It follows on from Essential and Enduring by providing another 100 of the most popular Irish session tunes. The book echos the format of a typical Irish session; lots of reels, some jigs and a few hornpipes.
100 tunes ( 65 reels, 25 jigs, 10 hornpipes) with chords, classified and alphabetical (with alternative titles) indexes. Important note from Mally The tune settings in this book are all ‘session friendly’, i.e. you can learn them exactly as written and know that you will have a perfectly acceptable version. However, I consider it unwise to learn a tune from only one source and I would suggest strongly that, when learning a new tune, you pay heed to settings in other books, on recordings and what you hear down the pub. It is important to note that the settings in this book are greatly influenced by the instrument I play, the D/G melodeon. I’ve made a conscious effort to allow this to happen in order to give the book its own unique character. The list below would constitute an excellent nucleus towards forming a valuable Irish music library, many of them are available from mally.com. When choosing books, take care not to be put off by the title; some of the best sources of tunes are from tuition books. Just because the book cover says ‘Learn to Play the Banjo’, don’t think it’s of no use if you play the tin whistle.
