Suggestions for beautiful reels similar to emily’s reel?
I always seem to end up with loads more jigs in my repertoire than reels. I actively try and get more reels but then still the jigs seem to overpower them.
I think it is because I find it harder to find reels I like vs. jigs. Ones like cooley’s and pigeon on the gate I find uninteresting and most the videos/audio I hear of reels seem of a similar stock to those kind. Emily’s reel on the other hand is beautiful and I have been really eager to learn it this week.
So I would like to hear more suggestions of like reels. I would say what I like in a real are interesting twists and turns and well whatever you can think of similar to the above-mentioned as that one really hits the spot for me.
I have given up being concerned about whether a tune is popular in sessions because most likely if it is I would probably not like to learn it. Not always the case of course but the ‘war horses’ are probably going to be akin to pop music in that it is made for a mass appeal and easier to learn.
