Play the Banish Misfortune on an Irish Fiddle
Ian: Hi there! Welcome to onlinelessonvideso.com. I’m Ian Walsh and I’m joined today by Kevin Buckley here on the guitar and he accompanied me on a tune, a jig with three parts, it’s called The Banish Misfortune. We’re going to learn that tune today and Kevin thanks for playing along with me.
Kevin: It’s been my pleasure
Ian: So, let’s get started with the tune. I’ll break it down piece by piece and we’ll learn it, The Banish Misfortune.
Before we get started on this tune, let’s take a look at some double stops that you can use. We’ll look at three of them. The first one, we’re going to look to our low string here, the low G and we’re going to play our first finger on it giving us A note. You’re going to let your bow play the G and the D string and you’re going to get A and D double stop. It’s going to sounds like this.
This is nice low double stop. We’re going to use it in the end of this tune. You have the same notes but you move your bow across to the middle of your strings and you play the open D and the open A giving you pretty the same double stop; you just rearrange the position of some of the notes. So, the low A here and you have your middle A and then for a third double stop, let’s look to our A and E string. We’re going to use that open A again and we’re going to play our first finger on the E string. This is an F sharp. Now, given us an F and A played together slightly different. We’ll use this one right in the beginning of the tune. So, here are the three double stops again; the low one, the middle one and our highest one.
Just some nice double stops that you can use and lot of this in this tune you’d be working on the middle two strings. So, you’d be using just kind of blending of both those strings. So, let’s break down some of the notes. The first section goes like this, starts on the F, on the E string and we can right away use that double stop, so you can kind of hit both strings.
Here’s the sequence of notes, so across on three strings there, the note are F, E, D, C, A, G. Now, as you’re playing that C in the low position. So then we go to the A string, ending again on the G. So, those notes are A, D, D, C, A, G. Let’s try it again and we have our first beat and the second. Let’s put those together and we get to the beginning of the tune here adding that double stop. Just start the tune with a strong down bow and emphasis on that down bow.
Okay, we have roll coming up, we’re going to slide in to it.
