  1. I am in Isolation, being high risk. Four months seems a long time, but my GP advised that may be a minimum. No contact, no sessions, why not put tunes here so members can download and share with family and friends, in fact anybody. I am posting this to see if it flies. https://youtu.be/rMjkQQX08Q4
  2. I came across this in and Old 1986 BBC TV prog at Christmas, I don't know the tune or any other details. Any body know more details Regards Dave https://youtu.be/T9Y94oRL2cY
  3. A Happy Holiday to all and everything you wish Best Wishes to all Dave
  4. Hi Folks, I have been asked if I could produce Musical PDF's from the Xmas Tunebook I have and the link is below, this is not intended to replace the tune book, but to go alongside, the pdf's in the tune book, you now have a chance to hear what the dots sound like. The tunes are recreated on a computer using a piano sound and I have slowed them down, but when watching the video you can always pause and practice a single bar or more till you happy. Hope you like this has been a rush job and I have missed out two tunes, but Im not going and start again. As always any comments or suggestions are most welcome. SORRY I posted wrong Link before, it was the one from Google Drive and you can only view not download and then mess about with it. Regards Dave This is the link below
  5. As all our local shops are all full of Xmas Stuff already, I* am joing the trend As before tune played slower than normal, and any replies, comments very welcome Hope you like PDF below this link. Regards Dave https://youtu.be/WpkGhHQP9aQ Flowing Bowl PRINT.pdfFlowing Bowl PRINT.pdf
  6. Thanks Steve, I took the dots directly from abc in key of G, but choose to transpose to 'D'. I try to simplify the tunes so that it won't be too intimidating for "New Players & Beginners" The main objective is to get a tune that sounds right to the ear. But with vagaries of computer science the Music Software I use makes some of the decisions for me, ie type of note and length I then play the tune as I see it on the screen and if it sounds ok, I accept it will be more careful in the future, I'll dig out my old Quill and parchment and ink well! plus a couple of candles. Like you have been a fan from the start, but do not like some of the tune versions which they have experimented with.. Best Regards Dave
  7. Another in this series same PDF below the Video, tune slowed down on purpose. Regards Dave Barwick Green_D.pdf
  8. From the comments and emails I have received people prefer the Landscape for screen annimation So here is one All For Me Grog, played very slowly and below the normal Printable Version in Portrait. Any comments or questions welcome. Regards Dave All For Me Grog.pdf
  9. Thanks for comments, I am In the process of doing a Step bt Step list for mathhag. My next post up in a latwe today is EASY NOTES MUSICAL PDF, hope you like as I am still getting to grips with the technology (Smart Phones ?) When I was a kid, Two Tin Cans and a piece of string was our smart communication. Regards Dave
  10. Since finishing Xmas 2019, I have been messing about. Now I am getting to grips with the VCam thing and the associated software I thought I try to Improve on the PDF's which I attach yo my posts. I have found how to make them more realistic to players by not only outing a printable pdf with my posts, but to animate them as well. You will note that I am NOT playing along with these two offerings I have chosen a piano sound font which fits with the pdf. There are two versions one is Portrait Mode and the Other in Landscape mode both of the same tune and same tempo. I have again attached a linke to Google Cloud for each One. I really would PLEASE ask for relies comments good or poor. I will let you decide which format people prefer, I have not uploaded these to Utube as yet as I wait for comments on Google Cloud. Many thanks to all who have viewed Xmas 2019, hopefully this format of PFD's might well work in 2020. Again many thanks for viewing in the past Auld Lang Syne PORTRAIT https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pxUPPTyQnKUIUtICVpu6x9MxI413c7a_ Auld Lang Syne LSCAPE https://drive.google.com/open?id=110KPnNdP9ioy05OJ3z30VC1qLlpJ67jG Regards to all Dave
  11. Well I have just finished my small offering, In order to put it here I have used a Google Drive Link. Hope you like as always tips & hints and comments most welcome, I have had to cut the number of pages to make it fit into the space I have available on google drive. Below the link to the tune book hope it works ! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ITEjObLZNYXh2LBDVrCmnJTVBUxJV6a5/view?usp=sharing Regards Dave
  12. Thanks glad you like it check out The Dark Island Post in the same area as this post, I love that tune a nice slow air, I recorded just using Audacity Audio Software,it's free and still available although not longer supported by the team that produced it, it is still one of the best I have used, try it . The tune is the theme for a BBC Radio Drama Play about spies and stuff in the Isles Of Scotland, is also known under different titles. If you7 want any further help or info pls pm me and I will be glad to try and help Regards Dave
  13. Thanks John I've tried google one-drive that bit seemed ok below the URL they have given me hope this works its the small one I posted above. Then I can crack on and finish the complete tune book. Again many thanks https://drive.google.com/open?id=1AN9f3YXBaTr_X349W7a0grsI81-7Bfcg
  14. Hi again, this time I have put the first few pages of a Xmas Tune book in PDF form, which I am currently finishing. The full larger version cannot be loaded onto this forum so I am seeking help to find a way putting it somewhere and then provide the URL for anybody to look at or download for free. So any help or advice other than try to sell me my own website I don't have the ability or the time to do that. Please give me your thought's there are players out there with far more technology skills than I. thanking you in advance. Sample PDF below EASY NOTES XMAS 2019.pdf Regards Dave
  15. Thanks Mike, I do look as the Morris ring quite often especially at the abc list, the two variation you mention are both listed under Winster, living where I do it is not too far from "The Miners Standard" in Winster villager in the Peak District. The dots I put up here is from the tune I was shown by another box player, even older than me! Many thanks Dave
  16. This is quite a short tune which is normally repeated as required the PDF is below There seems to be something not right in showing the MP4 but id you copy the UR$L and past into your browsaer it seems to work https://youtu.be/1VQeePLT60E Winster Processional_new_part.pdf
  17. Hi Again Hope this works the MP4 now included and the original PDF version which I note is not exactly what some people think it should be but in my last reply there are far too many different versions. Does it sound right listening, do the dots make the same tune. Again this is starting point for beginners and people who do not read the dots Here is the PDF The Dark Island.pdf Dave The Dark Island.pdf
  18. Thanks Ted for the comments, sorry so taking so long to reply. I copied the abc and exported it into midi, I then ran it in another notation package. The package came up with the layout you saw, so maybe it loses or gains something in exporting and importing. Because of this I looked round the net for any other variations. After visiting a number if sites I gave up at roughly 490 versions plus a large number which used various different titles, the is even a "very loose" version which is used in The Patriot Games. My main intention was to help new players especially those who cannot read the dots, all they want to do to start with is be able to play a simple tune their friends and relatives can recognise. From Small Acorns etc., Regards Dave
  19. Thanks Pau, I'd like to say it was intentional, but not, just poor typing. I am always referring to your tune books and actually add to them to increase my own collection. Many thanks for providing us all with such a wealth of tunes. Regards Dave
  20. Getting ready early, nice simple tune with PDF Hoping to follow up with New Victorian Carol PDF Book in same easy notes, when I have found away of placing it somewhere with a link It's too big for this forum, and I don't want a website with all that entails. Tried to post a trail version onto Utube but no success, so any help or advice would be great. Then I can post it somewhere and it is free to all to download. Regards Dave In The Winter's Snow.pdf
  21. Only the second Live recording still getting to grips with camcorder and playing at same time! why do they make remote controls so difficult. Have included three PDFs one all one one page, second over two sheets and third The Lyrics Any replies or comments welcome Regards Dave Fiddlers Green 1 Page.pdf Fiddlers Green 2 Pages.pdf Fiddlers Green Lyrics.pdf
  22. Audacity is the prog I use to physically record my playing using a cheapo external mic, I when finished exported the audio file as MPs, I then used an old copy of Switch Sound File Converter to turn the MP3 into a MIDI file. Notation Composers only accepts MIDI or XML or its own NOT files. Once the midi has been loaded it produces the sheet music. If you say use ABC and play it in ABC, you can then also export ABC into a midi file, load into Notation and job done new sheet music you can manipulate save in Notation or as I do and also EXPORT file to PDF. That's what I have been posting. The File Switch Software is available but to get the midi conversion now I think you have to buy a Pro Version, but Im sure that there are others out there. When I get to the stage of not having any MIDI files I would just use ABC to produce them. Hope this helps a little I keep no secrets too more interested in the music than the technology. Regards Dave
  23. SPRUNGHUB Thanks for the reply, I too have some difficulty with this modern technology hence my last edit. I can play and record that's bits fine in Audacity which is still a FREE program, I can choose to keep a recording in it's own format which I do as a backup. It also has the ability to allow me to export the tune as a MP3 audio file. Then I use a audio file converter prog to produce a MIDI file. That midi is then loaded into the Notatation Composer software. which itself converts the midi to a readable/playable piece of sheet music, just adjust the layout to suit yourself and export as a PDF File It sounds complicated but it is not really, the hard bit is when I import the MP3 into the Video Editing software it puts it into a sound track and up to now I have just imported a picture as well and that goes into a video track, save as Whatever name and then upload to U-tube it then gives you the link (URL) to the tune which in theory I then Insert into the posts, along with the PDF and as is by magic it should all work. I am now at the stage where the last bit of posting to the forum goes pear shaped. Some times its works sometimes I get it wrong..as in GREEN FIELDs I shall keep trying and one day it will all come together. So if anyone out there can tell me where I going wrong please tell me. I think this question should be a subject for another type of website, but I am only interested in the playing and enjoying the music. Regards Dave
  24. I recorded this on Audacity file before I got my new camcorder thing, so the video bit is a picture of my concertina and the audio track is from the MP3 from Audacity. I have included two PDF files one is the dots all on one page the other is the dots spread over two pages It depends whether which suit your own eyesight. Regards Dave Regards GREEN FIELDS OF FRANCE-1Page.pdf GREEN FIELDS OF FRANCE-2 Pages.pdf
  25. A Nice lttle tune I recorded on Audacity before I goy my new camcorder thing. As usual below the PDF any comments/replies welcome, mybe one day outing this stuff together may become easier Regards Dave Sweet Chiming Bells.pdf
