100 Enduring Irish Session Tunes Book

by Dave Mallinson


The CD is also available on its own as is a Book and CD combined Package.

This book of Irish session tunes diverges from the usual pattern in that the emphasis is not on the reels.

Loosely speaking, the jigs and reels found in this book are the next most popular after those found in 100 Essential Irish Session Tunes.

Another major feature of this book is the prominence given to the various other types of tune, such as slides, set dances, hornpipes etc. They always come a poor third to reels and jigs, but they constantly crop up in the sessions with such a significant frequency that they cannot be ignored.

There are hornpipes, marches, a strong selection of jigs, some slip jigs and one or two other well-known melodies to spice up your repertoire.

100 tunes (14 hornpipes, 15 slides, 34 jigs, 23 reels and 14 miscellaneous tunes) with chords, classified and alphabetical (with alternative titles) indexes.

Important note from Mally

The tune settings in this book are all 'session friendly', i.e. you can learn them exactly as written and know that you will have a perfectly acceptable version.

However, I consider it unwise to learn a tune from only one source and I would suggest strongly that, when learning a new tune, you pay heed to settings in other books, on recordings and what you hear down the pub. It is important to note that the settings in this book are greatly influenced by the instrument I play, the D/G melodeon.

 I've made a conscious effort to allow this to happen in order to give the book its own unique character.
