Volcanic Jig

Obviously off of Natalie’s new album, and it’s a pretty cool jig. It’s surprisingly easy for as interesting as it sounds.

One more note

Natalie is the one who wrote it. Gotta give credit where it’s due!

Thanks for posting this, I got the CD as soon as it was released but hadn’t bothered to learn any of the tunes until now. Possibly my favourite track.

Anyone know of any good tunes to follow this one in a set? Thanks!

Re: Volcanic

Anyone have a score with good guitar chords for accompaniment?

Re: Volcanic

this is a climax tune–nothing should follow it.
I like coming into it from Indian Point by Rick Moore

Re: Volcanic

(for the record, Indian Point is by Rick *Mohr*. www.rickmohr.net)

Anyway, for accompaniment chords, I’d think the following pretty well matches what the cellist does on the album, so… a good starting point anyway 😉
