Splendid Isolation Reel – bluegrass style

I took “Splendid Isolation Reel” out for a bluegrass stroll since all the pubs and churches are closed. This Brendan McGlinchy tune is Irish down to its bones, and I think you can still hear that even through the blue notes and syncopation here… a fun project for me to try to squeeze it into an American costume for this arrangement.

And I even notated it for you!  You can grab that right here – my gift because I hope the title makes you giggle, and we all need to giggle right now.

You can also find the basic sheet music for the Irish version in a bunch of different nine different keys/modes here.
