Emma’s Reel

A Willy Taylor tune that does not appear to have been published in abc format.
Typical Willy Taylor repeat notes giving this strong rhythmic drive.
And to think he did all this with no forefinger on his left hand.
What a great player.

Sweet! Thanks noelbats. Where did you pick it up? Now to go see if I can find a recording of Willy playing it?

Funny tune this one. No-one in the Angels knew it by name but all of us knew it when we started playing it.
It is played widely but only occasionally in sessions and deserves wider airing.
