Music: Fiddle Tunes

Well, I was at the Jam Factory earlier today and was playing the fiddles that are hanging up on the wall. I kept playing the same tunes over and over because my mind went blank and I couldn't think of any tunes.

I came home to test my memory skills and here are the songs that I know from memory:

Anniversary Song, Grumbling Old Man, John Ryan's Polka, Nail That Catfish to a Tree, Red Wing, Soldier's Joy, Squirrel Heads and Gravy, Tam Lin, Whiskey Before Breakfast, King of the Fairies, Kesh Jig, Boil Them Cabbage Down, Eighth of January, Girl I Left Behind, Golden Slippers, Hobart's Transformation, Last Rose of Summer, Leitrim Fancy, Liberty, Danny Boy, Midnight on the Water, Mississippi Sawyer, Missouri Waltz, Morrison's Jig, Mullberry March, Off She Goes, Over the Waterfall, Pigeon on the Gate, Ragtime Annie, Road to Lisdoonvarna, St. Anne's Reel, Sally Gardens, Chicken Reel, Gary Owen ... and I know "parts" of several other tunes.

So ...

What did I learn from my "brain dead" experience?

Carry a list!!!!!!

So you've learned that Mulberry march! Let's play it a session, okay?
Sounds good to me! We'll just need to make some chord charts ... and it's ready to go!!!!
