Re: Reel De La Main Blanche

Great tune - thanks for adding it! It also appears on the end of La Bottine Souriante’s live track ‘Ouverture’ and in their contribution to the ‘Fire in the Kitchen’ album with the Chieftains

Here’s a version with the fab. banjo girl Damaris Woods in Gmaj, it’s allmost like she play it, had a bit of problems putting it down the right way - I think. Its the second, after duelling banjo’s

Reel De La Main Blanche, X:3

Recently asked by a friend if I knew this tune, which I didn’t, so found it here. My transposition is taken from the youtube clips so I hope it clarifies the situation (and that I have it right). Great tune so thanks to my friend.

Re: Reel De La Main Blanche

I should have added that the final playing of the tune could finish the same as the end of the ‘A’ music - GFEG F2 or you could just add the top F at the end of the ‘B’ music. Opinions would be welcomed.
Has anyone got another Quebecoise reel that would go well with this one?
