Obviously, popular tunes frequently heard in English sessions have been selected for this book. However, there is a slight bias towards the more exotic and slightly more obscure, alongside some of Mally's personal favorites. Also, you'll find several extremely challenging airs towards the end. The tunes are suitable for every instrument associated with traditional music and only 14 notes are required to play them all. They are eminently suitable for playing at country dances, ceilidhs, barn dances and hoe-downs and most have been recorded by notable bands and personalities.
