“Sad folk music for 2 flutes”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

Despite the fact that these tunes are predominantly sad in nature, they are really good to play and excellent for teaching! The melody is played in unison first,enabling the notes and rhythm to be practiced before the variations develop ensemble skills. You will enjoy them all - promise!

From the Publisher

Duets with guitar chords added and words of the opening verse of each folksong. Nicely illustrated, cleverly designed and fun!

Each traditional tune is given 2 variations which are played in [almost] canon.
