Link: Tiompan Alley - David James, Irish fiddle and hammered dulcimer

Posted by Marc Metzger on Monday, August 2, 2010

This link is to the site of musician David James, a performer and instructor on hammered dulcimer, fiddle, and other Irish traditional instruments.  David has posted a large number of tune handouts in PDF format on his tune page, (  A lot of them are annotated with the whys and wherefores particular to celtic tunes, and also some have suggestions for appropriate set tunes.  This site is a winner in my book because it was where I found a good tab to "Queen of the Fair", a tune I had heard on an old Dubliners CD one of my friends had, in my pre-ABC days.  David has a number of other resources on his site, including some expository writing, a simple intro to reading sheet music, and a pretty extensive list of Irish music and song sources.
