    Hi Jody, I'm really pleased you like the tune, thank you. I'm not at all precious about the arrangement as written, the chords were added to suit the D/G melodeon player in the morris side. Please feel free to change the chords and/or arrange in anyway you see fit, I can't wait to see what you do with it!

    I don't write many tunes but here is one I'm quite pleased with. The tune is dedicated to a young boy, son of one of the dancers in the morris side I play for, who had a rare disease which proved fatal. Young Evan was an honorary member of the side and the Squire wrote a new dance in the Lichfield style to celebrate his life, I was very pleased to dedicate the tune to him. Once the dance is established and well-rehearsed I'll post a link to a video of the side dancing it, in the meantime here's the tune.

    Hi Aldon, I'm pleased you like the look of the arrangements and I hope you enjoy playing them. Sorry for the slow reply but I don't drop in here as often as I should.

    Name of this tune from the Hebrides?

    Here's a link to Vin Garbutt singing My Love's in Germany, fast forward to 2:12 to hear the song, Vinny's intro is good but he was from Teesside with a very strong accent which may be difficult for non-native UK English speakers to understand.

    It's been a long time since I last posted. Here's a fun tune with chords for the duet players to vamp. If you don't like chords names under the staff just deleted the two V: fields in the body text.

    Tricks Or Tips To Learn To Read Music

    I agree with Don, whereas the Coursera course assumes no prior knowledge of music theory, it does expect an undergraduate level of comprehension and learning ability, this is after all a university offering free tuition and it takes no prisoners. I'm a fair to middling reader and would expect to play most straight forward folk type tunes up to four sharps and three flats at three quarter speed first time through, but I only made it just over halfway through the Coursera thing before I gave up. Horses for courses I guess. The music theory section of the 8notes website is helpful and free, it's a good place to start.

    A Remarkable Young Anglo Player

    Unless I'm mistaken I had the pleasure of playing alongside Cohen some years ago when he was just a boy but already a remarkably good violinist. This was a weekend workshop with Alistair Anderson, learning to play the Steel Skies suite at The Elephant in Lewes. His talent was formidible then and it would seem it has continued to grow, wonderful to see!

    Québécois Tune Collection

    Hot off the press is a collection of 381 québécois tunes originally noted down by Isidore Soucy (1899 - 1962) and here transcribed by Jean Duval in PDF format. There is also an alphabetical list of the tunes which link to a page with information about the tune and more importantly in most cases a link to a video of the tune being played. Enjoy!

    My new earworm is a Playford tune, a wonderful triple time hornpipe called Well Hall. Skip straight to the tune now if you have no interest in the vagaries abc notation itself! [abc geek] I came across it reading a post about ABC software being unable to play an accompanyment using the guitar chords in the tune if the time signature is one of the less common ones. It can handle all of the simple time beats plus the common compound time signatures 6/8 and 9/8 but anything top heavy 3/2, 6/4, 12/8, or that won't make groups of equal length notes per beat like 5/4 or 7/8 cannot be played back unless the program is given more information. The final directive in the file header - %%MIDI gchord fcc - gives the software the rythmn, fcc meaning fundamental, chord, chord, with emphasis on the fundamental. Not ideal for a 3/2 hornpipe but at least you get the chords playing [abc geek/] X:69 T:Well Hall C:Playford, 1679 Q:1/2=120 M:3/2 L:1/8 %R:hornpipe % leave commented! correct but generates error msg %%titlefont Helvetica 22 %%subtitlefont Helvetica 16 %%composerfont Helvetica 16 %%wordsfont Helvetica 16 %%partsfont Arial 20 %%partsbox %%gchordfont Arial 16 %%barnumbers 1 %%MIDI program 40 % violin %%MIDI chordprog 0 % piano %%MIDI gchord fcc K:Dm clef=treble V:1 gchord=down P:A |:"F"A2c2d2c2f2A2|"C"G4E4B4|"F"A2c2d2c2f2g2|\ "Dm"a8 "C"g4|"Dm"a2g2f2c2d2f2| "Bb"d4F4 "F"A4|"Gm"G2A2B2c2A4|"C"B6c2B4::\ P:B "Bb"B2F2G2F2G2B2|"Bb"D6B2D4| "C"E2G2A2G2A2c2|"C"E6c2B4|"F"A2c2d2c2f2c2|\ "Bb"d6efg2d2|"C"e2c2A2a2f2a2|"F"f6g2f4:| V:2

    Here's a version of Nancy Clough played on English concertina. I can put the abc up if anyone is interested. Nancy Clough
