OK, I mentioned it in the "When you hit a roadblock" discussion, and I really want to know your opinion about that. So here it goes:
I’m sure all of you have found yourself struggling with a tune, and eventually realising (or maybe convincing yourselves after hours of unsuccesful practicing and a deep feeling of frustration) that the tune was originally intended for another instrument. Haven’t you?
So here’s my proposal:
Could you guys name those ‘reluctant’ tunes and the instrument you believe is most suitable for??
It might be silly, but I think it’ll be good fun.
I’ll start with a few of them, my wannabe but neverwillbe favourite whistle tunes:
The Atholl Highlanders (fiddle tune)
The Humours of Tulla (fiddle/box)
Around the World -aka The Wise Maid- (fiddle)
The First Slip (fiddle/box)
Note that, as a whistle player, most of the tunes in my list are what I believe fiddle tunes. No flute or pipes tunes, obviously. So I’m really interested on what you mighty fiddlers will say.
