weepiper What was your first tune? (57* d) What was your first tune? 14 Apr 02


What was the first tune you learnt? Or the first song, if you're a singer?

The first traditional (i.e., non-school, purely for my own pleasure) tune I learnt was "Ca' the Ewes", on the recorder, when I was about 8 (I learnt it from my mum). And the first song I learnt properly was "Crazy Man Michael" when I was 12 (I learnt that from my dad).

How many people here have been doing this since they were little? How many only came to it in later life? I'm just interested because I went through an 8 or 9 year period where I completely lost interest in this scene, but came back to it with a vengeance when I hit 20.

Your thoughts (and tunes) please! :-)
