This book is the ideal primer for anyone wishing to participate in an 'Irish session'. This musical gathering is apparently quite different than a blues jazz or bluegrass jam session in that it is customary at Irish sessions toplay in tight unison with the other musicians adapting appropriate tempos rhythms and ornaments in an attempt to fit in with the 'groove'. The 'Irish Session Tune Book' features 300 reels hornpipes polkas slides andslip-jigs written without chord symbols for the melody instruments commonly played in Irish Sessions. The author shares a wealth of melodies collected over the past 10 years the majority learned by ear at Irish sessions: fiddle accordion tinwhistle tenor banjo mandolin bouzouki etc. Authentic ornamentation is suggested for each tune with the admonition that ornamentation may vary from region to region and chorus to chorus.
