December Class

Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve given you an update.  We had a nice class Saturday.  No new tunes, but we had fun reviewing past songs and playing a lot of Christmas tunes.

Some of the tunes we reviewed  were

Billy in the Lowground

Cold Frosty Morning

Me and My Fiddle

Peeler Creek Waltz

We had fun learning Peeler Creek Waltz by using some silly lyrics:

“Feed your babies onions, so you can find them in the garden after dark”

“Feed your babies onions, so you can find them in the dark”

 

September Class

Hi all,

We learned two tunes in the intermediate class.  The first was A Mighty Pretty Waltz and the second was Miss Molly.

Shirley has added a bunch of tunes that she learned at the West Cascades Fiddle Camp.  Thank you Shirley.

 

 

August Class

First of all this month, I’d like to give a big thanks to Shirley N., who has put in a huge amount of work converting all the sheet music on this site to PDF’s. I look forward to working with her in the future. Hope the new PDF’s are easier for you to print and work with.

In the fiddle class, we reviewed the tunes below and learned Margaret’s Waltz. After playing it a few times in the key of G we played it a step up in A. Next with the fingering we used to play it in A, we started the tune on the D string which transposed it to the key of D.  Here’s Margaret’s Waltz in G and here’s Margaret’s Waltz in A.

July Class and New Tune

We had a good turnout for the fiddle class Saturday. We reviewed about a half dozen songs and learned a new tune, Forester’s Hornpipe. After that we went around the circle and jammed.

June Class

We learned two new tunes this month.  The first is from Eugene resident, Stan Gonshorowski: My Dad’s Polish Wedding Waltz.  We also have a Scandinavian tune,  Schottisch fran Havero , to learn.

Hope you have fun with the new tunes,  Joe

May Class

We had a good class Saturday.  Ila Mae couldn’t be there to teach, but Amy volunteered and did a great job leading us.  We learned a new tune—Cat Out of the Bag.

While we were jamming after the teaching, three new tunes came up.  Two of them were from the basic fiddle class and one I had missed.  The tunes were:

Loggieville Two-Step

Marching Through Georgia

Royal Princess Two-Step
