How to choose a set ender
I need some advice about putting together sets. My band is more focused on vocals, but I want to do more instrumental stuff. I am looking to put some sets of three tunes together.
I seem to be good at finding what sound to me like middle tunes and reasonably good at finding tunes that sound like good openers, but when it comes to finishing the set I falter and lose all direction and get discouraged.
Here’s some backround on me some of which is in my bio some not. I play a modern silver flute -have for 21 years. I am classically trained. Been playing in the Irish genre for about 4 years. I attend a slow session once a month (we are a couple of local bands and friends hanging out playing tunes and I know this will make some cringe, but we fully condone reading dots at our session as we have almost no tunes in common).
Anyways, I am looking for advice either theory or if you have favorite tunes that you think are show stoppers that you would like to suggest as set enders that would be so cool. The current tune set I am working on is with Brenda Shubert’s Reel and I am looking for companion tunes for it. Any ideas?
