Hello Dave. I never heard Ian Walker before. Hawks and Eagles is a fiddle tune made popular by Norman Edmonds from the 1930.s. That was the tune I was trying to play. Walker used the melody to build his song on... Very nice. Thanks Bob.

Dave & Dana further thought Have just looked it up on the Web Site called The Session The music & ABC are there , as far as variations - pass. I can just about play Bill Charltons Fancy through twice without any of the variations ( I havent got enogh fingers on the left hand)

Dave, the only Tab i Know is the ones you smoke ( geordie expression for Cigarettes) The short answer is no . I learn everything by ear or sometimes osmosis . I do know it requries the 1 1/2 fret to get the F Natural . Th second & third parts of the tune If thats what they are , I have never mastered . Only thing I can suggest at this time is play it over & over ad infinitum until it sinks in . Sorry no Tab

Hi Dave , You missed Newcastleton this year Frown.gif . Anyway it rained & was windy and a bit cold. The camp site was a bit soggy . Now I will have to write a blog to explain all that. Nice to see you here, even if we are talking via the States. Keeping well I hope.

Hello Dave and a welcome to you from the UK/European group within FOTMD, glad you found you way here! 'King of the Fairies' eh ! I have an old tape of Phil's, 'Iron Man', on which he knocks out a very good rendition of that tune !
