1. 'Making up the miles' from Kierans album 'Back smiling again',
2. 'Quivering' from MundyTurners album 'Crooked house'
3. 'Leaving Season' from MundyTurners album 'Crooked house'
4. 'William Jolly' from MundyTurners album 'Wholly road'
5. 'Naked' from MundyTurners album 'Wholly road'
   I would be most greatful for help with any of these. Thanks.

Why not do it the traditional way and learn the songs by ear? I presume you cant get Kieran or MT to turn up and teach them to you so take in the recordings and learn from them. Explain to your tutor that it is an example of how traditional songs and tunes were passed from place to place and generation to generation......i.e. the "Oral" tradition.........You never know, you might get away with it!! :-)

My tutor isn't bothered how we learn it. at the end of the day if it sounds good it sounds good if it doesn't it doesn't. Problem is i'm a singer not a guitar/piano etc player. I dont even know where to begin, hence my asking for help. Thanks for the suggestion Bassic but i'm afraid it is of no use. Thanks anyway.

I don't know an awful lot about Mundy Turner, but Kieran Halpin tends to stick to basic chords with the top E string tuned to a D, if you can find a guitar player to help you out, it shouldn't take much figuring, unfortunately, I don't know that particular Kieran song! So I can't help any more than that.

These are the chords I use for Making Up The Miles.....if I recall correctly.....
Hope you find them helpful....
Sorry can't help on the others

                        G
I wasn't led here by a star
                     Em
Or by a vision in a dream
                           Am
I only know I've come this far
                                  D
And you're still here with me it seems


                            G
For every breath I take is yours
                            Em
You are the blood within my veins
                              C
For when I'm here with you I smile
                            Am
But when I'm making up the miles
             D7               G
I feel I'm breaking with the pain

Try playing the D chord at the end of each verse as a C shape on the 3rd fret. Good luck
