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

Notes: Here is an almost bare bones arrangement (standard notation) for the traditional reel in D major. Notice how I use an F# in spots (not the usual B-note). I've also changed a commonly played triplet (B-part) to two 16th notes followed by an 8th note, which has more punch, less bounce, than the triplet. It's called a "treble" no matter how it is notated.

had a more studied go thru your arrangement Tom. yep nice. i'll steal that grace note in the bm bar! and try to work in some variations, ease up on the triplets and less bounce.

Well, the bounce thing is relative, and it all depend on the context and with whom one is playing, session or gig. None of this is written in stone.
