Convertible to 6/8 time.

One of my first oldtime tunes we used for tune-up. I found it easy to play this in 6/8 time just for fun..

Here’s a lovely version from the playing of French guitarist Bernard Bigo:

Over the waterfall

a wonderful tune that I stumbled on. Where does this tune originate from and are there any American tunes to play with it.

“Mickey Mór Doherty’s March” / “The Dark Girl Dressed in Blue” ~ t’other way roung & 2/4

Re: Over The Waterfall

Hi ,

Can any one tell me about a set known as "the american set" (4/4 time)
first tune is over the waterfall
second tune is Liberty (not liberty bell)
third tune is golden slippers

I have managed to locate the first and second tunes and checked to see they were the right ones but I am unable to find the last one. Does anyone know this set and does the last tune have a different name.

Thanks Mary
