Learn a Tune a Week (free)
Here is a selection of tunes from the James Aird collections (1782). I have added chords and, in some cases, harmonies or 2nd parts. The arrangements are designed for mandolins, citterns, mandolas, bouzoukis and guitars but settings will suit other instruments.
If you manage to learn a tune a week we can all get together next year and have an Aird's party.
Every week I will add links for the notation and to audio files, including some practice files. These tunes are fairly easy but where there are awkward things I will add something about technique.
With each lesson pack I will include a selection of practice files and an audio file of a mix I've made at home for you to play along with. Turn the BIG Mix up loud so you feel as if you are 'in the room'!
WORKING ON THIS - new unit coming soon.
