Manitas de Merde

tunebook 3 tunes.

About 30 years too late, I heard Aly Bain playing fiddle on his first album with Mike Whelans. Seriously, how can anything sound that good ? Rushing madly to a music store and grabbing a fiddle, I became a compulsive molester of any tune unfortunate enough to fall within my grasp. A tragic (for me anyway) accident with a wood planer cut off a substantial portion of my left index finger, ironically making it as painful for me to play as it was for others to listen, but it wasn,t enough to make me stop, the massacre of innocent traditional music continues !
