Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

the tune the fiddle player is playin is the donegal lass by brian finnegan from armagh

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

Thanks, nice stuff indeed.

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

Aye, some good playing there. Not so sure about the scott skinner up the dusty bit, bit I really like the first guy’s playing. Lovely variations on that tune, and a lovely understated style.

Without spoiling the party though, I found this one as a classic "how not to" …

Oh dear. That’s really priceless. Come back Flatley, all is forgiven. Or on second thoughts…

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

A good site for performances, would love to find (I’m sure I will). some DADGAD tuition on there, and put my band on for the craic.

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

Check COMAS for a buzz.

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

Come on guys, those guys are not bad. Some of them definately dance better than others of them and I would question the side shimmys from one of the early guys but it is all a bit of fun and they were certainly different -original.

And Michael, you didn’t like Jenna’s playing?! Oh well, each to their own!

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

Don’t get me wrong those Comas guys can clearly play but they don’t half look like they are having a miserable time - very boring to watch.

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

maybe, but I dont get out much lol

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

That Barrage stuff is pathetic. The worst of it all is that they can actually play, but it’s this kind of attitude to the music that makes me want to vomit. You have to be a clueless american to really like that.
It’s my most honest opinion…

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

Actually, I posted that link because I thought theur playing was awfull. (the attempt at dancing was just funny)

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

Ah ha, do I detect a wee touch of mid-atlantic drawl creeping into your prose there llig - thaur!

Dagnabbit! 🙂

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

A Scottish fiddler rolled through Phoenix a couple years ago and taught me that firt tune. Glad to finally know the name =)

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

Easy McGregor, isn’t that a bit of an exaggeration? They are trying to do something different. It is not really to my taste but you are overstating the matter just a tad. Everyone is surely entitled to do what they want. "The tradition" is perfectly secure and broad enough to allow that and there can be clueless people in any society. It is not something particularly preponderant on America.

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

For me the tell tale wasn’t America. It was more specifically Disneyland… hence the Mickey Mouse dancing.

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

Thanks Sessioneers for posting these great links.

In the social section of my professional forum, I was asked about Celtic artist names and how one would start a collection of the kind of music I played. So I gave them a list and also the links from this thread.

Re: Nice Stuff on YouTube.com

Sorry. Yes, there is clueless people all over the world indeed. I said americans because they mostly sell and play there.
But the musically enlighted people like me can see very clear that that is RUBBISH!
