EASY 'N SLOW
Here are all the tunes that we'll play in the "Easy 'n Slow" sessions.
You can download the music as a pdf file which can be printed out either as A4 sheets or, if your printer permits, as an A5 booklet.
You can also download all the tunes in ABC notation (as a ZIP file). Unzip. and then import into an ABC editor.  I use EasyABC which is available (free) for Windows and Mac systems.and allows you to vary the speed of the playback..

Use the links below to jump to a page or tune. The player below each tune plays the tune once slowly and then a little quicker.  On some tunes I've added a 'faster' version at the end!  As these are computer generated files they are accurate in terms of pitch and note length but they lack any expression.  When we play them in the workshop we'll play them with 'light and shade' and 'lift' to give them real life!     The guitar chords are basic.... try to play them rthymically rather than a manic strum!


I have made a few corrections at intervals to the transcriptions - the versions on this website should be the most up to date.. Most of the amendments have been to the guitar chords, but nothing too serious.  I have tried to keep the pdf, the pages below and the abc file the same, but it hasn't been easy! Please forgive any remaining discrepancies; after all, it is folk music!
