0s, 1s, & 3s
I’m working on a project for fiddle learners and I would like to find a few simple tunes where the players would only need to use open strings as well as first and third fingers. In the key of D for example there would only be As, Bs, Ds, Es, F#s, and As on the top two strings.
I’ve only found two so far, The Kerry Polka https://thesession.org/tunes/39 and the American tune Angelina Baker. Dan Collins’ Father’s Jig almost fits the bill but it has that pesky high B.
Ideally I’d like to have about five tunes like this. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
