A tune to go with …………..

A tune to go with …………..

In our session we have a habit of starting off with a song and then adding a tune on at the end seamlessly - or that is what we hope. For example we sing Galway and Mayo by the Saw Doctors and follow it by Spootiskerry and The Humours of Cullenstown. It works believe me! Anyway can anyone help. We are looking for something to follow on from Colours (Yellow is the colour) by Donovan - something in A. I have been asked to sort this problem out but hoped there might be a member willing to help.

Re: A tune to go with …………..

Hey there,
It would help to know first of all which key you are doing Colours in. If it’s G, D, Am or Em, you can tack on almost any reel and it should work well (even better may be to have one reel in the same key as the song, then another in a key above or below to finish off). See what tunes your session members already know in these keys and you can go from there.
I hope this helps a little!

Thanks - the idea that any reel would work makes sense. Thanks also Kenny for your recommendation - I will give this a try
