This page shows the tunes we are currently playing at the Slow and Steady session on Wednesday evenings at 8.15pm.     As new tunes are taught, new sets are added.  Recordings, sheet music and other aids to learning are available on the A-Z Tunes page of around 700 tunes.   
To access the A-Z All Tunes with all links to recordings and music, click here, then enter your username and password.


Here are some examples of recordings and visual aids available on the full version.  In the session we play along to a recording that is much slower than the examples here!
All in a Garden Green    

Maison de Glace  
Pride of Petravore (Irish Hornpipes)  


In the session choose the tune or tune set you would like to play. Recordings and visual aids are on the A-Z index so readers can join in straight away, or try to learn as you go by playing along as this is the best way to remember a tune.  Join a class to learn more tunes and develop rhythm and phrasing.  We play at a very steady pace so all group members get to play along most of the time! 

This group will suit players who come to classes on Wednesday evenings, Thursday mornings and complete beginners from Thursday at 7pm are encouraged to come along and join in with the tunes they already know.

There are special recordings with solo fiddle and solo fiddle with guitar on the A-Z index specifically for beginners to join in and play.
