5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 22 Feb 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: O'Neill's Music of Ireland: Eighteen Hundred and Fifty Melodies, Airs, Jigs, Reels, Hornpipes, Long Dances, Marches, Etc. (Paperback)
This is a fantastic book with every type of jig, reel etc. you could think of. They are all quite short as well, which makes learning them easy, and lots have ornaments so you can make them more complicated if you want to. All round a fantastic book - more like a library really! Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This includes almost every Irish tune you'll ever hear, 29 Aug 2001
This review is from: O'Neill's Music of Ireland: Eighteen Hundred and Fifty Melodies, Airs, Jigs, Reels, Hornpipes, Long Dances, Marches, Etc. (Paperback)
This is a straightforward collection of almost every Irish fiddle tune you could think of - with a few hints on fiddle ornamentation. Whistle players would find it invaluable. Sadly American -ethnocentric rather than Irish, and the cover states 'over 1,000 fiddle tunes - in fact there are only 996 - we counted!'. Still an absolute essential if you want to play the music.

This review is from: O'Neill's Music of Ireland: Eighteen Hundred and Fifty Melodies, Airs, Jigs, Reels, Hornpipes, Long Dances, Marches, Etc. (Paperback)
Lots of good stuff here, but I would have like more music that is not necessarily attributed to O'Neill. Don't perfectly understand the presentation of the music. I guess what I'm saying is that it's difficult to sort out the 'original' irish music. But it is a great book and I have found many great tunes.

Have been looking for this for my 14 year old daughter. It is just what she wanted and more, She hasn't stopped playing tunes and studying it since she got it .
Good value and a great book for any serious traditional musician.
