Fiddle Tune Tabs
Just added Old Joe Clark to the Fiddle Tune Tabs section on FFOF. https://fiddlingforolderfolks.com/fiddle-t…/…/old-joe-clark/
Old Joe Clark is a US folk song, a mountain ballad that was popular among soldiers from eastern Kentucky during World War I and afterwards. Its lyrics refer to a real person named Joseph Clark, a Kentucky mountaineer who was born in 1839 and murdered in 1885. There are about 90 stanzas in various versions of the song. Old Joe Clark has been described as “one of the most widely known of all Southern fiddle tunes and become part of the United States’ national repertory.
I just added a new tune to the Fiddle Tune Tabs section called The Presence.
This is a beautifully haunting, but peaceful tune, I ran into on the Fiddle Players Facebook page. It was composed by Yvonne Casey, and she and Tim O’Connor recorded it at Tim O’Connor’s studio in Savoie, France. I like it so much I just had to learn it, so I did my best to write out the tabs, which I think I got correct. Enjoy.
I felt like something stirring today, so I just added Hava Nigila to the Fiddle Tune Tabs section.
Hava Nagila is an Israeli folk song traditionally sung at Jewish celebrations, but it seems peoples of all faiths know this familiar tune. Customarily sung in Hebrew, here is the English translation:
Let’s rejoice and be happy.
Let’s sing and be happy.
Awake, awake, my brothers!
Awake my brothers with a happy heart
Awake, my brothers, awake, my brothers!
With a happy heart
Prairie Spring is a beautiful waltz by Jay Ungar, and you can now find the Tabs for it in the Fiddle Tune Tabs section of Fiddling for Older Folks.
Had me at Jay Ungar 😉
Nice tune, well done by those young folks!
Here is another song I added to my Fiddle Tune Tabs page. Not traditionally played on the fiddle, and probably not most folk's cup-of-tea, but I got listening to it last night and it was still in my head this morning, so I decided to write out the tabs.
After learning Eric Bogle's "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda", I decided to work on this anti-war (folk) song by him. I have posted the Tabs for anyone who would like them.
