bassen Review: Traditional Norwegian tunes on guitar (9) RE: Review: Traditional Norwegian tunes on guitar 30 May 11

Glad you liked it Skarpi!

Øystein has a website at, unfortunately only in Norwegian. Here's a rough and ready translation of his description of "Normør":

""Normør" is a selection of fiddle tunes ("slåtter") from Nordmøre, transposed from fiddle to guitar. Although premises of the musical expression are set/determined by the guitar, the main ingredients remain the clear simple melodies and dance rhythms typical for the region of Nordmøre. Despite some arrangements, some improvisations and a little artistic freedom when it comes to tempo and tonality, the main expression remains within the tradition."

Tunings for the individual melodies can be found here
