Simpleish to play but sounds good?
« on: December 04, 2012, 10:54:07 PM »

I've learnt Egans polka, its simple yeah but it sounds quite good to me.

Does anyone have recommendations for similar kind of tunes? doesn't have to be Irish music, in fact anything will do for me.

I kind of like French music.

One of the books I'm using is Dave Mallinson's "Easy Peasy tunes" - they are supposedly graded according to ease - but I am just working on the ones I already know.

Thème Vanettais, Bourrée des Dindes and Le Ruban Bleu are three of the simplest French tunes I know. All three tunes crop up quite regularly at sessions in England.
