Frank’s Reel – Fiddle lesson

In this free fiddle lesson video, I’ll teach you this great tune — Frank’s Reel. Fiddle player, John McCusker, wrote this tune and it has become a really popular tune in Irish and Scottish sessions.

This is a really fun tune to play on the fiddle. But the B part has a little bit of rhythmic syncopation, which can be tricky. I think the best way to approach it is just to learn the notes of the melody carefully, get them confident under the fingers of the left hand, then think about the bow and the string crossing, and then gradually speed up the tune.

I really hope you enjoy learning Frank’s reel — Fiddle players, if you would like to take your playing to the next level, take a look at my Irish fiddle courses, including a completely free course.
