      I’m currently learning Maid Behind the Bar, memorizing the notes. Can’t wait till I can slowly speed it up… 🙂 Also working on Beaulieu from Andre’s lessons. One of my favorites.

      Le Jig à Ti-Toine (Hanneke Cassel)! Paired with Cypress Jig. I love them!

      Dipping my toe into Quebecois music for the first time! I’m starting with a somewhat familiar one (Valse du Chef du Gare, which I’d actually heard Andre play on a CD) and hoping to work my way up to Beaulieu Reel and La Gigue de Terre Bonne. I’m also going back through a lot of Hanneke’s stuff and practicing the ornamentation now I have the notes down. 😛

      Very cool…so many tunes and so little time!!

      I’m also considering trying out the foot tapping thing as well as working through Niall’s chopping series…those are two things I’ve never tried and think would be cool to add to my bag of tricks…

      Casey, you will learn foot tapping and not regret. It was the very first thing I remember learning from Andre a couple years ago. I now find myself doing it without thinking when I play fiddle or listening to fiddle tunes, haha. And yeah I know what you mean about how many tunes there are 🙂
