looking for YouTube videos that are good for playing along with (quasi-session experience)

I know plenty of youtube videos to learn a tune from, or to watch in awe as someone does some brilliant playing, but can anyone post links which might be good to just play along with for a while, like at a session, minus the banter and the Guinness of course? Somewhat well-known tunes, in sets, for a decent length, like a half hour or more?

I put together a YouTube playlist called "Play along" but it’s going to be quite specific to me—tunes I know played at a pace I can (try to) keep up with, and none of the videos are very long:

(Lots of Fergal Scahill doing his tune a day.)

The person who posted the video (Niamhaines) that sergeant fox mentioned has loads more videos, click on his name to see them

In case you didn’t already know - youtube videos can be slowed down

Good tip, Gromit, but I think you’ll find that Niamhaines is female.

These people are doing a weekly session: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SITF30HBssM. I’ve been using it for my second and third instruments and slowing the video down so I can keep up.


Last time I checked every VR session from OAIM on youtube is the same series of tunes.

thanks guys! now I feel rich. So nice to have a trove of these. I am also looking at how to do a zoom session with other players which will scratch the itch. Can’t wait to get back to real sessions though.

Hi,
I just saw on one of Shannon Heaton’s videos that she ran one yesterday,
