Simple Gifts (Lord of the Dance) – 1848 by Elder Joseph Brackett – Tin Whistle – Play Along Tab Tutorial
“Simple Gifts” is a Shaker song written and composed in 1848 by Elder Joseph Brackett.
‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come ’round right.

Me too… I am just learning myself,
and I personally find that it is easier to learn tunes, the ‘Karaoke’ way. Either having an indicator move to the next note. Or more like the ever popular ‘Guitar Heros’ game, with the notes moving down the screen so that you are ready for them. There is a huge benefit to having them in rhythm so you play each note at the right time. I did start making these videos just for myself. but I decided that as I was putting so much effort in to them it seemed a shame not to share.
So I set up my YouTube Channel [ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVgPuZJRehYN3j2fAHRsVKA?sub_confirmation=1 ] and a Blog/Vlog site [ https://fiddlingwithmywhistle.co.uk/category/tutorials/ ] to keep everyone up to date with my progress, Also, so that people could comment and help me, and help others to get better. My aim is to share my mistakes, as much as my ‘lucky’ moments.
I like all sorts of music, from the great Classical tunes, through the oldie Folk tunes and the more modern Folk tunes. And of course the best songs of Now. Rock, Pop, Blues, R&B, the list goes on. If it’s good, and lasted the test of time, hopefully I will get to it.
Have fun…. Fiddling with my Whistle
