Find a recording of the traditional Irish fiddle tune The Star of Munster. I play it nearly every time I pick up my fiddle. I don't seem to have ever recorded it, though, and to be honest I've never heard it played except when my fiddle is under my chin.

Saddest tune for me is Neil Gow's lament on the Death of his Second Wife. Alasdair Fraser does a wonderful job on it.

This is one of the most beautiful waltzes I've ever played, or heard for that matter. Excellently crafted piece of music.

Blackberry Blossom in G, played slowly, is such a sad lonely sound. Try it sometime.

When I lived in the Adirondacks of northern New York state, each summer that they were held, I would travel to the Scottish Games held in New Hampshire where as a part of the festivities, I would attend the fiddle workshops hosted by Alasdair Fraser. He is a fine teacher and a superb musician and a delightful fellow to visit with.

So he didn't  feel bad enough to write a song after the first one?

Alasdair Fraser does a good job on all of his tunes, Happy, sad or otherwise.... A Master Fiddler IMO.
