Frønk’s Reel

A Norwegian reel which presumably has a Norwegian name, though in our Edinburgh session that’s been lost to the depths of time and translation so it got renamed Frønk’s Reel, as in the Norwegian version of Frank’s Reel, purely because of the 3rd bar which it shares with Frank’s. If anyone knows the actual name, please do let me know!

As for the tune itself, it’s an upbeat happy fest guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face. It’s great fun to play for both melody and rhythm players, even if it does involve the horrors of third position for violinists!

Re: Trondheimsfjorden

Perfect, thanks a lot! I’ve updated the name now!
