Great Shetland reel
This is one of my favourite Shetland tunes which may, at first, appear a bit daunting. However, it’s probably not quite as hard as it first seems, especially if you’re quite good at moving up to the higher position. I’m fine with the mandolin but can fluff the higher notes when I try it on the fiddle. Just lack of practice. :-)
Actually, if you substitute "c" for "c’" and "E" for "e’" or something similar, you’ll get a quite acceptable version of the tune which will blend in perfectly well with the "correct" version at a session.
