  1. Apologies for my stumbling fingers.


    I only noticed one obvious slight stumble from which you recovered quickly and it didn't seem to rattle you at all, Playing through a mistake without allowing it to affect the rest of the piece is a good skill to have. I enjoyed listening to this and have noted tempo rubato and note length juggling as part of your style. ;)



  2. This is one for the collectors, I doubt I will ever reach the standard required to play it but it's nice to mess around with it. Ratface rides again! :D

  3. Now that Tune of the Month is up and running so well, a move towards Theme of the Month (ThOTM) is a healthy thing and gives everyone a chance to contribute to one or the other and indeed both of course.


    Tune of the Month = The 1812 Overture


    Theme of the Month = American Old Time


    I'd probably steer clear of the 1812 Overture because I play English and it doesn't have a special key for canon fire like some anglos. American Old Time offers me a world of opportunity to contribute at any level I am capable of.


    Adding a Theme of the Month is a great idea, it makes things much more inclusive! What shall we have first, Tunes from Monaco? Okay perhaps not. ;)

  4. So if I wanted to play the tune in G I would bring down each note by four tones? And start the tune on the G note?


    Try popping this into the Tune-O-Tron. ;)

    W:A step-hop hornpipe meant for the jaunty lumpiness of

  5. Here's a tune with a difference, thirteen measures in the A music is something I've not encountered before and I can't really tell if the tempo is anywhere near right. It's quite catchy if a little odd!


    T:Six and Sevens

  8. By the way, my sense of that extra beat is that the four 8th notes B-A-G-F# are the third beat of the previous measure, not the first beat of the next measure, as my friend Peter has notated it.



    You know the more I think about this the stranger it seems. I don't recall ever transcribing this tune, I don't have it in any of my abc files, I don't have a printed copy of the music and I can't transcribe by ear! I'm beginning to wonder if someone used one of my headers because it had all of the right info in it and couldn't be bothered to delete the Z: field. There is a file that's note for note the same on the Session, the only difference is that the few bars of music in 6/4 in 'my' file is shown in 3/2 on the Session version. Weird!

  9. This post is a bit tongue in cheek as the piece is so incredibly hard to play but I do love these variation sets. This comes from volume 2 of Kohler's Violin Repository and is by far the longest piece of its kind I've ever come across. This one should get Profrat reaching for his concertina!


    Dirge, the PDF is here! All three pages of it.
