Sorry about the slurs, I got a bit over zealous in putting the slurs I play in. This tune feels on the fiddle a bit like some Ed Reevy tunes in rhythm. I like switching from a d minor to a d major tune in a set, but its great to do it within a tune too!

I think sometimes it’s not a bad idea to put in slurs (bowing, phrasing). Done properly, it brings the tune to life and becomes an integral part of the tune. I am finding now that if I take the trouble to learn the bowing of a new tune along with the notes it can make it just that little easier to learn; it’s no longer a succession of letters of the alphabet.
