Hello Scott
Well to make tunes flow and follow each other well will take you some time and lots of listening to sets played by experts,then you might understand how it is done,for me it's all to do with a good key change and the following tunes to start on a note that fits in easily and is easy to finger,and yes reels in sets of two or more,and jigs in sets as well , they will not mix , remember that Irish music is for dancing and dancers won't change reels into jigs or viceversa,so my tip for you is not to hurry , play your banjo , with others , listen to lots of tapes or cd s and Irish radio music programs they are very good. Regards Quentin

I'm new to ITM and I am having a dickens of a time putting tunes together and making them flow ..
Any helpful hints out there?
I have also been told that jigs only go with jigs and reels only go with reels etc.
Is this a truism or is my session leader being a tune Nazi!
