Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish Style: Other Key: D Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD) Difficulty: Expert

Notes: Here is an excellent old fiddle tune, "Fisher's Hornpipe", arranged for melodic style banjo in the now-common key of D major. It is a straight forward, entirely melody based version of the tune. In the first part there is a quick (1/2 measure) II7 (E7) chord, which may or may not be played by the rhythm guitarist; the melody does not change, regardless. There is a little bit of "cross-picking" (crossing one right-hand finger over another) and dropping the middle finger down to the 2nd string. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!

Hi Brennan, I think it's a regional thing as to where the II7 V7 chord is used in the first part. I've heard it both ways...Jack Baker
