Minor Swing

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

This is not so much a fiddle tune as the head of a jazz tune that gets you into the improv.

At the same time, it has been used in movies, including Chocolat.

The tab chart for Minor Swing at 100 Fiddle Tunes is close to the way I play it. That's all I can say for its accuracy, or lack there of. My philosophy is, if it sounds like the tune, that's the tune. If it sounds kind of like the tune, you can call it that or something else.
