In the post this afternoon arrived 100 Irish Ballads which cost a couple of quid on eBay. Hmm, it was just the melodies, but heigh ho I wanted a break from the minuet, so I learned the first six bars of Carrickfergus, which was great fun. I got carried away and bought a full piano version off of music But when I played the midi it was a flowery elaborate arrangement, not my scene at all, man. So what I need is a bookful of traditional tunes with straightforward piano arrangements.
