Ready for a new challenge?
Website atuneaweek.com show-cases a new tune every week. Each tune includes a slow version for learning purposes, a session-speed version to play along with, and any notes from the teacher that are relevant to the tune or playing in general. Just knowing that others are learning at the same time is often enough accountability to push you to learn. Let's give it a try!
This Week's Tune:
Where We Go From Here
As we all begin to deal with a global pandemic, Pint of Irish would like to let you know how we are responding.
First, protecting the health of our members is our number one priority, and we recognize that we have a social responsibility to be good actors in keeping others safe, too. With this in mind, Pint of Irish is suspending all POI sanctioned events of any size until further notice, including all sessions and practices.
Even though social distancing is necessary at this time, it is important for us to come together to work through this crisis. While we may not be able to meet up in public, we continue to build a strong community online. Please join us on Facebook and Meetup for information, inspiration, and friendship.
This hiatus is a great time to practice old tunes and learn new ones. Just imagine all the fun we'll have sharing new tunes the next time we meet. Remember, you can find sheet music, chords, and videos for our most commonly played Songs & Tunes right here on our website!
Another wonderful resource for learning many of the tunes that are in our Tune Book is Stuart Mason and John Weed's Slow and Easy CDs. You can listen free to fifty Irish session tunes played slowly on fiddle and DADGAD guitar.
