Jonny’s Funky Fidlle

This tune was written by a twelve year old fiddler called Matheu Watson .It was written for one of the boys fidller freinds,Jonny Murphy from Eire.He had a very cool fidlle that hadn’t been varnished and that is what the tune is named after.

Funky Fiddle

So it’s not funky in the sense that it smells bad?

It’s good to see an E major tune; we don’t seem to have very many of them.

High C

In the second part,bar2 it is ment to be a highC (if you play the fiddle the C in the third position).


Yes I have Played jonny a number of times. The tune was written about his fiddle as you can tell from the title of the tune.
