Tunes which seem hard/ impossible to play
Has anyone noticed, that it seems impossible to play certain tunes on any instrument.? When I say impossible, I might be stretching that opinion a bit. I was talking to a musician some days ago, and this topic came up for debate. Some of the "tricky" tunes that we mentioned during our chat, were Lord Gordons reel, Trim The Velvet, and The Cliffs Of Moher. Another example is, The Masons Apron. It is easy to play on an accordian or a piano, but it seems impossible to play on the tin whistle. Yet another example is The Irish Washerwoman. Again let me repeat, it is easy to play on the accordian, but seems much harder, on the tin whistle. Of course, it can also come down to practice. Who can think of some more "hard", or "impossible" tunes, which are easy on some instruments, but harder on others.?
