Hello, wondering if anyone is familiar with the song “the butterfly?” I saw someone from Newfoundland (Newfie Fiddler or something like that) but I couldn’t find it on YouTube to share it. It is one of my all time favorite tunes.
Here’s the link to the music – it’s free!
The Butterfly – Listen!
That’s a cool Jig
Those Irish jigs sound cool. We’ve got some good Celtic fiddlers here. Are you playing it, Fayew?
Peakfiddler is great. I like a lot of his song choices he has online.
Peakfiddler is a pretty incredible Fiddle Player, I especially like his fast version of “Star Of The County Down…”
Cricket, this is about 5 songs in. I have a list. haaa This one is intermediate to advanced and I am a mere beginner. I gotta have goals though…right? I’ll play it before ya know it.
Thank you, Nancy! He’s good. I wish I could find Newfie Fiddler. Best I ever heard playing it. I used to watch it everyday. Then it just disappeared on me.
Yep! You’ll be playing it in no time! Can’t wait to hear you, Faye. :)
Thanks, Steve. I think so to. My favorite, I believe, of all the slip jigs.
Great Scott! Thank you for the encouragement. I promise to share it when it happens.
Here is a great lesson from my friend Jason, if anyone is interested in learning this tune.
Thanks, Great Scott! I’m watching it now. I’m hoping it will help.
I started building the tabs for this song (beginner); does anyone know how to do something like that electronically? I have it drawn. I could scan it and share it but would love it to be pretty. :-)
I think the program called ‘Tab|edit might do what you are trying to achieve.
They have a FREE trial demo version available (with limitations). Scroll down to the bottom of their Home page to download FREE trial version.
There is also a FREE program called ‘Power Tab Editor’ which worked on Windows XP. I think it might work with Windows 7 or higher, bu not sure of that. Below is a tutorial on what it can do. (NOTE: Just be sure that you download it from a reputable source.)
You may also like to check out ‘MuseScore’, a FREE program.
Hope these suggestions help.
The tabs for Butterfly are here at BGD , Look under sheet music !
Duh! (Slaps forehead hard) Why didn’t I think of that!!!!!????
I just now put it there because of the requests. :) Hope to do a lesson on it before too long!
