Traditional Scandinavian Dance Music on Mandolin, Guitar & Fiddle - Polska efter Juringius

performance video youtube Nov 21, 2022

In this video, we play a traditional Nordic dance tune on the mandolin guitar and fiddle. This is Polska after Juringius, Sweden.

We recorded a spontaneous jam session in Falun, Sweden early July 2022. The band is Magnus Zetterlund (Sweden) mandolin, Hayes Griffin (Ohio, US) guitar, and Ondra Kozak (Czech republic) fiddle.

If I could do ONE thing for the rest of my life, it would be this; playing Swedish fiddle tunes with musicians like Hayes and Ondra in my studio. I enjoy this 100 %!

Octave Mandolin Lesson - Chords Accompaniment - Murphy’s Hornpipe - Celtic Traditional

In this video, I show how I play the octave mandolin accompaniment for Murphy’s Hornpipe. It’s a traditional Irish tune I learned 17 years ago but still love to play it.

For this accompaniment, I focus on playing a strong baseline
It suits this tune well with its forward-moving chord changes.

At the end of the video, I show you how to play the accompaniment on standard mandolin, and the chord voicings I prefer for that.
