Haven’t yet had a chance to post the previous sets mentioned. Yet, yesterday morning a particular mood came over me and I made a recording of Jacquelyn’s First, a single reel, and Roscommon Reel. I also found the time to tab out Dunford’s Fancy, a tune by the Waterboys.
Here is the mandolin (tab) tablature and sheet music for the above mentioned tunes.
Dunford’s Fancy Mandolin Tab
Jacquelyn’s First Mandolin Tab
Here is the recording of Jacquelyn’s First and the Roscommon Reel.
PS- You’ll notice on the tab for Jacquelyn’s First, it says “capo 1st fret”. I started playing it a half a step higher at first on the octave mandolin.
After a few years of creation, I’m happy to announce that the Asheville Celtic Mandolin Collection is now available for purchase. A 20% portion of all profits from this book will go to the Swannanoa Gathering Scholarship Fund.
