Old Bush/Wise Maid Celtic Irish Reels on Mandolin

Last night, the wife decided to go to the gym. I was home alone, and I had no more work to do, so thought I’d finally learn these tunes completely.  I found the best way to do it, is to make a recording, with melody, chords and a metronome.

Here’s the sheet music or tablature.

(Ye) Old Bush

The Wise Maid

Here’s the recording.


New Tune, The Stone Smith

After the great show at Firestorm Cafe, here in Asheville, the following day a tune popped out.  It’s nice driving tune, I’ve called “The Stone Smith”, in honor of one of my good friends, who happens to be a stone smith.  This guy here —> http://www.artisanbuilderscollective.org/bio-matthew.html (If you need any stone work done, he’s the man for it.)

Here’s the tune.

The Stone Smith

Let me know how you like it.  I’ll work on getting a nice recording of it up soon.  I enjoy playing it with Mist Covered Mountain and The Rambling Pitchfork.
