Galician Tunes for irish sessions? YT playlist
My name is Jean and I mostly play fiddle, banjo and mando (intermediate more or less) ;) . Like many other sessions we focus in our session on irish/scottish/canadian stuff. But why not include one or two tunes from Galicia? Due to family connections I got in touch with the rich galician culture and discovered some splendid tunes that are worth being included in a trad session.
Before taking off for Galicia I thought about recording some of these tunes while being there. Due to lack of space I wasnt able to take the fiddle etc. so I settled for a ukulele in fifths tuning. Quite challenging as its not keeping in tune that well but its ok and its a lot of fun.
So far I have been putting together 7 videos…to be continued till holidays are over ;)
Sorry for missing out on some triplets or tightness of rhythm… its mostly about having fun 🙂 and giving you an idea of Galicia and its rich musical heritage. Feel free to watch share and comment… cheers and graciñas, Jean
