Free Printable Violin Music
Musical Priest Free printable violin music Musical Priest is a catchy tune and fun to play. It is especially useful for fiddle players just starting to add ornaments to their playing. Musical Priest is offered here in two arrangements:
a simple version with large notes and no ornaments, and a smaller musical font arrangement that shows where to add turns to the melody.
This is a lively tune. Here is a video from , with a close-up lesson: the website of Duncan Cameron VIDEO
Please scroll down the page for the download links.
The music does not say "Swing", but to me, it is more fun played that way (that is not how the fellow is playing it in the video above - he is playing it with lots of little ornaments, but he is still playing it STRAIGHT).
For beginner violin players, it is easier to first master the melody, and then add in the ornaments in lines 1 and 2. My two versions are almost the same as Duncan Cameron's, but is closer to the arrangement found in The Fiddler's Fakebook.
Try this reel with a swing rhythm (LONG-short, LONG-short, LONG-short, LONG-short, etc.). It has a very different feeling!
