TUNE Langstrom's Pony

This is a very good four-part tune and will help you to get to grips with playing jigs. 



Langstrom's Pony - Here is a clean page of the tune we are learning.  This is exactly the same version of the tune as is played on the tracks below.  Thanks to www.thesession.org for the notation - go there for nearly any tune you want.

Note that this version doesn't use triplets or grace notes of any description - we'll get to that.  Use this one to get a swing into your playing, making sure to use the DUDDU picking pattern (use the mandolin pattern exercises to help you with this).
