Tunes for Monday January 10
The first tune is the Toureendarby Polka. It's also called "There's Worse Than That Around".
- Sheet music for the simple version
(Leaves out a few of the twiddly and in-between notes for ease of learning.)
- Sheet music for the "stylish" version
(More like how I'd play it "in real life"...)
- Here's the listing for Toureendarby Polka on thesession.org.
- Here's the listing on IrishTune.info.
If you don't know this website, it's awesome.
If we have time, we'll learn a second polka: Din Tarrant's Polka.
I am still trying to figure out where I learned this tune. There are some different versions out there.
- Sheet music
- Din Tarrant's on thesession.org
- Din Tarrant's on irishtune.info
Note: there are several by this name.
And, if we have any more time, here's a slide called If I Had a Wife.
