Fminor Tunes?

Fminor Tunes?

I want to find tunes in Fminor, but thesession includes this tone in the Amayor tunes category.

Re: Fminor Tunes?

I’ve not played a single tune in F minor in 25 years. Why the fascination with F minor?

Re: Fminor Tunes?

F minor is one of those keys that the majority of players recoil at the thought of. There aren’t a whole lot of tunes in that key, but there is certainly a handful. I’ve seen a few in old Scottish collections, and aside from that there’s a few modern compositions.
Paul Cranford’s Cape Breton Scottish Collection has a few dandies in F minor. If you’re interested in them, send me a message!

Re: Fminor Tunes?

I’m pretty sure that that the OP is looking for F#m, not Fm. F#m tunes that spring to mind are:
Ash Plant (à la Dervish)
Wes and Maggie’s Ceili Croft
Edinburgh Rock
Reel for Carl
Hearty Boys of Ballymote
Palmer’s Gate + Drag Her Round the Road are typical Em tunes which are also common in F#m.
