Redwing is a great tune Cynthia, and I see it's on the requested tunes list but the link comes up with "Road to Lisdoonvarna"0
Peggy, I'm new here. How do I find the "requested tunes list"? I used the lesson search feature and also looked under the Lessons tab.
If you look at the lessons and scroll right to the bottom it will show you the requested tunes. If they are in blue that means there should be a video on youtube but not a lesson here just yet.0
Thanks for the request! Sorry about the bad link! I have fixed it. Below is a direct feed. I have also posted tablature of my current favorite Redwing break on the Sheet Music page, if you want to go there and download it!
Peggy thank you for clearing that up.
John, thanks for Redwing and ALL the good work you do here!0
Redwing is a jazzed up version of the old folk tune "The Happy Farmer", which is #16 in Suzuki book 1. Red Wing is probably in the top 10 of fiddle jam songs here in Alberta, although it is a simpler, less ornamented version than what John plays here.
It is quite a study to see how you can take a simple folk tune and Fiddelize it up by adding the little runs, grace notes, etc.
John, I'm not seeing the sheet music for Red Wing. There are 3 songs beginning with R, but no Red Wing on the Sheet Music page.0
Give it another try, Rodger -- for some reason my last save attempt failed!0
It has been so long , I am so happy to be here , cant get enough of Johns great lessons ! I am working on Redwing now , and the ward Allen version , thanks for the break notes and tab , its very good , I am just having trouble with the rhytm parts , but it is getting there , I think that there might be one bar missing or am I just getting bar 14 and 15 wrong ? I can get the main melodies but the intermediate or even advanced is what is interesting me , if I could get it down , haha , pas facile ... I hope everyone is doing well and practicing new tunes !
