At a recent Promises Auction MrsB paid for me to have a lesson on a hurdy-gurdy. I've had a couple of email from the guy and it sounds like he's struggling to find suitable tunes for me to play. I've told him I'm into folk-rock and he's suggested we could try Lyke-Wake Dirge by Pentangle. I don't know it that well and to be honest I'll be happy just to have a go on the instrument.

But I thought I'd ask on here for any suggestions of easy-to-play tunes on a hurdy gurdy. The lesson is tomorrow afternoon btw.



Edit: I've just thought that Nottamun Town could be a fairly easy one to play.

We didn't get feedback after the lesson?
