This must be the same for many folks. Some reels in particular that have minimal melody like "Mountain Road" and "Rolling in the Ryegrass" have me underwhelmed. I want to learn them in a way to participate in a session, however there is nothing in the tunes that would make me lead a set with them. I have turned into an Session player overthinker. Dear Abby,"Is it OK to sit out a set", "And Dear Abby, will I be mercilessly judged if I sit them out?" Then the next question, "Why are these reels so popular?", "Dear Abby how many tunes is enough to participate on one hand and not go insane overthinking on the other hand."
