Tune Of The Month For September, 2013: Hop And Skip
Pete Dunk replied to Jim Besser's topic in Tune of the Month
Ah yes but what a bass! The bass concertina tends to be ponderously slow to speak at the bottom end of its range so either you have a very responsive concertina or you are very good at judging how early to start the note so it sounds at the right time. I rather suspect that the truth lies somewhere in between as some of the busier passages are just a little blurred so to speak but even so that is a remarkable performance of a bass playing melody.

Poll: Tune Of The Month For November, 2013
Pete Dunk replied to Jim Besser's topic in Tune of the Month
The tune that intrigues me more than any other this month is Mr. Moore's Hornpipe, here's another sensitive rendition btw. This is a great tune, said to be English trad and yet it is apparently undocumented as far as I can tell other than that Brian Peters makes a reference to it being from the Thomas Watts of Derbyshire manuscript which I've so far been unable to find online. Tune tracing can be very frustrating at times!

Pete Dunk replied to Jim Besser's topic in Tune of the Month
As it happens I didn't 'give' the tune, I took it straight from the Morris Ring website. Speculate all you want but I did point out that the 'Adderbury' tune wasn't to my liking but I fell short of saying that tune wasn't anything like Haste to the Wedding as I knew it. I, after all, don't claim to be the oracle . . .

These are the three morris versions of Haste to the Wedding that I know of. If you want to be different try the Adderbury version but I think the Headington Quarry tune sounds nicest.

Great contributions here, I've enjoyed every piece all the way from the top of the thread. A deceptive tune this one, not something I would tackle off the cuff because the style is so far removed from my comfort zone but it's great to listen to.

It is, however it's also described as 'Volatile'! I will look at updating abcm2ps if needed Chuck but don't forget you are running the Mac version of Easy ABC not the PC one and is doesn't matter which version of abcm2ps you have if the interpreter ignores some commands! 
Tune Of The Month For October, 2013: Xotis Romanes
Pete Dunk replied to Jim Besser's topic in Tune of the Month
I think Jack was trying to rewrite it because only the converter you pointed to can turn that rather odd looking code into a single stave with the countermelody printed an octave lower than written using the command V:Countermelody octave=1 which I've never seen before and doesn't work in any of the four ABC software packages I have installed so it most certainly won't work in Barfly. I know three different methods of printing two parts on a single stave using abc but none will print a voice an octave lower than written with a header command as far as I am aware. The converter is very clever for doing that but the coding isn't very useful if it isn't supported by the most popular software packages and requires an internet connection to work. I get a nicely printed sheet of music but the second voice is printed at the pitch it was coded in not an octave lower. Pete.

I may have to wander over, Lewes is less than an hour away for me and I've yet to see Kettle Bridge dance.

Phishing perhaps? Sorry to sound cynical but a genuine poster might have checked in and acknowledged posts made so far? Just spotted the ".edu" appended to the post. We have a live one, first class nerd. What's not to like?

Kohler's Violin Repository ABCs Scans of the three volumes are here.

Here's a great tune from Estonia. A post on melodeon.net drew my attention to it, listen to young Ollie King playing it and then have a go at it yourself.

Scan of volume two is here. Maggie Lawder is the second tune. The ABC I posted (from volume 2) was transcribed by John Chambers of "JCs Tunefinder" fame. I have the ABC's (and scans of the originals) for all three volumes if you'd like them? In fact I'll root around and find the page on John Chamber's site so that anyone who wants to can grab the files, there are some wonderful pieces in there, I'll be back! Pete

WOW! That is all. 
Does this mean you've now figured out how to make sheet music from the ABC code? If not and you would like a PDF copy, message me with your email address and I'll send it to you. Pete.

There were a number of errors in the abc coding that I've corrected, I've also spread the music out a bit as it was ridiculously cramped. Pete.
