Fiddling is something that has always been my passion, even before I learned to play, I obsessively listened to fiddle music (Leahy, The Chieftains, River Dance, to name a few)...and now in recent years Liz Carroll who I think is the queen of Irish fiddling. She even got to play for Obama! Anyway, long story short, I got a hold of her a couple days ago and she blessed me with some sheet music to learn some of her tunes. I had been searching the internet endlessly and kept coming to dead ends. I couldn't learn by ear, because DUDE it's FAST. So three days ago I got this music and went crazy and learned three reels: Rushin' Dressing, The Quitter, and Remove the Rug (all found on her album Double Play with guitarist John Doyle). #lizcarroll#fiddle#fiddletune#irishmusic#irishreel
