This is an online fiddle lesson for the celtic tune “The Gael.” This is a tune written by Dougie MacLean, and was featured in “The Last of the Mohicans” movie starring Daniel Day Lewis. You can hear it in the the tracks titled “The Kiss” and “Promontory.” The movie was filmed right here in the virgin forests of North Carolina.
I shouldn’t say kids…when my daughter was driving age she didn’t like that word…I’ll say N. Carolina Young folks can really, really play…as a matter of fact, seems to me anybody born there automatically plays better than everybody else…if I could do it over, I’d have asked my parents to move to N. Carolina just for the few days before my birthday…then they coulda come home after that…I think I would’ve soaked in enough good fiddling vibes to carry on.
Hahaha it’s in the air around here. 🙂 I feel like everyone around here must play something. It’s like when I go to Nashville and every grocery store clerk and gas station attendant is a better fiddler than I am.
