Good fiddle tunes to practice sight reading?
I’m new here and looking for a bit of advice. I’ve just passed my grade 2 fiddle exam (Scottish Traditional) but I’ve started learning to read music which I’m struggling with. I’m a lot worse at reading notation than playing by ear, so it’s frustrating as anything. I’m just about graduating from nursery rhymes, and I can’t read notation on the G string. But Someone at a ceilidh last night gave me the sheet music to Mingulay Boat Song which I eventually figured it out so I can’t be that bad, and it was a lot more fun working my way through a slow pretty stuff tune ploughing through the endless boring ‘melodies’ you see in beginners’ books.
So I’m looking for slow stuff that’s on the D, A and E strings, first position, sounds good and is easy to sight read. Any ideas? Any help is much appreciated!
