I have just uploaded the rest of the 6/8 Jig Section of the bodhran solo covered in the video below and thought you might like the visual aid.
Just click on the link above to get the pdf and print off the THREE PAGES to play along with the video.
Here’s a quick guide to using the notation.
Down Arrow = Down Stroke
Up Arrow = Up Stroke
Larger Arrow = Accent (Heavier Beat)
Dash (-) = Rest
Higher the arrows on the lines = the higher the pitch.
H = High Pitch – Push In / Shorten Distance Between Back Hand And Tipper / Roll Thumb Over
M = Medium Pitch – Gentle Hand Pressure In Middle / Medium Distance Between Back Hand / Tipper
L = Low Pitch – Hand Just Touching But Without Pressure / Furthest Distance From Back Hand / Tipper
When you see a part surrounded by double bars and double dots ll: :ll these are repeat signs so play that part twice.
Foot would tap on first beat after each bar line l and first beat after each comma. The commas don’t have any note value.
This should all make sense once you print off the pdf.
