As well as listening to the slow tunes here make sure that you also listen to jigs played by traditional fiddlers. You can find some in the on-line discography.

The Irish Washerwoman is probably not the best tune for a beginner but it is well known and Pete has been requested to include this on the site.

For ease of learning,  the jig is played ‘straight’ on the recording using the Basic Jig Bowing. When you are confident with the fingering and bowing you should eventually try adding The Lilt.

To obtain the free sheet music, and slow versions of these tunes as mp3 files, from Mel Bay's Complete Irish Fiddle Player use the buttons to the left. (The quality of printing and recording has been greatly reduced to create faster download speeds.)
