Old Joe Clark for cello

I came across this sheet music for Old Joe Clark on the cello recently and thought I would share it with those who haven't tried this easy fiddle tune. I particularly like the Performance tips at the bottom of the page.

I play it an octave higher, and some of the notes and rhythms are different, but that's fiddling for you. Lots of variations.

Enough carefree fiddling for me for a little while though. I am back to [attempted] precision in early music and Suzuki for most of the rest of this week.

Thanks, I'll give it a try when my finger gets better.
