    Default Sixpenny Money

    Can anyone refer me to a mandolin solo rendition?
    Or if I could prevail upon anyone’s good will to post a slow or moderate or up to speed version? Just started “live (video) “ lessons and will need to invest in a recorder.
    Thanks
    Ed

    And there’s this: https://youtu.be/HCG50Gk7KkA

    You can slow YouTube videos down.

    This is the only mandolin version I could find. https://youtu.be/ZXIYC1regGc

    Thanks Mike.
    I didn’t realize one could slow down YouTube videos. I’ll try it with both. And that led me to a video of an Elaine Reilly playing a McNeela mandolin that I’ll try slowing down as well. thanks

    Hi Ed. I was lining up Sixpenny Money as one of the tune learning resources and, seeing your post, I bumped it up the list. "Dots", tab and sound file are all available at the "learn some tunes page" at TheIrishMandolin.com and I have put together a tune learning video on YouTube, see https://youtu.be/PQxSCEM13rQ

    Aidan,
    Thank you so much! That was incredibly gracious of you. I truly appreciate it. I tried slowing down the versions I found on YouTube but that sounds too distorted to my ear. Your version is lovely and allows me to better hear the separation of the notes and “get “ the pulse and “jigginess” of the tune. Also, the Uillean pipes drone is a nice touch- kind of took me by surprise but really liked it! I have a niece who is quite a cellist, maybe some day months from now when I have the tune under my fingers and visiting ones relatives is a thing again, she’ll accompany me with a drone behind the melody.

    Mike,
    Thanks to you as well. Although the slowing down the tune on YouTube sounds too disconcerting to me, I am glad to have other renditions of the tune. It’s very useful to have multiple recordings to listen to in order to get to really know the tune. As before my recent lesson I had never heard it. Which being a newcomer to the music is altogether too often the case.
    Thank you both
    Ed
