The Warlocks (Strathspey) – With Sheet Music and Tips…

Yesterday I have played some tunes that I have found on the site of the Scottish Fiddle School in Boston some time ago. Especially the first tune in the 2003 collection is a great tune that I like to play – “The Warlocks”.

I have found some  youtube videos of the piece:

Strathspey, March, and Reel

A slower version – The Warlocks starts at ca.  4:22.

An awkward occurence in some tunes is having to play notes on the same fret on adjacent strings. Here Nigel Gatherer demonstrates his method of approaching the problem, using a 19th century fiddle tune – The Warlocks – as an example.
