Old Bush and the Maple Leaf

Two nights ago, at the White Horse in Black Mountain, NC, we played these two tunes together.  The Old Bush and The Maple Leaf.

For you guitar flatpickers, here are those same tunes tabbed out in standard tuning and DADGAD.

While I’ve always found the “chopped off head” youtube videos kind of strange, this is the best one I could find at the time for The Maple Leaf.

Give Me Your Hand

I’ve got a few new tabs I need to put up on the tab section, but here is one that can’t wait.

It’s a tab of one of my favorite tunes, “Give Me Your Hand”.

I remembered how much I enjoyed this tune after hearing a piper at the Tuesday Night White Horse Session in Black Mountain, NC.

I used to play it with a fiddler here in Asheville quite a bit in the fall of 2009.

Enjoy!

PS- By the way, while searching for an image with the chords to “Give Me Your Hand”, I found this great site:

It has slow and up-to-speed recordings of many irish tunes.
