  1. Daft bat! *The preceding comment should keep Wolf occupied for several months* please notify me when he twigs it!
  2. Wolf I'm shocked! Does this help? I'm sure it will make you aware of the beauty of the tune! Best wishes to you and yours for the coming year. Halsway Carol

  6. This is a quirky tune that manages to have the feel of odd meter which it isn't of course. Quirky tunes are sometimes popular so maybe someone will like it. X:165 T:Sally in Our Alley.

  8. Whoops! I missed a bar out of the last line of Sally's Fancy. Try it now if it didn't make sense!
  9. This is a jolly little tune in a minor sort of way, I transcribed this today from a book published in 1740 so it may have a bit of dust left in the corners. X:150 T:Sally's Fancy.

  10. Ruediger, I think you do yourself and many other players on the forum an injustice by feeling that your comments on Tune of the Month entries might be inappropriate because there are a few good players on the block so they take precedence! Alan Day is a wondrous anglo player who can advise on musical interpretation and style for a given tune but he can't help me with the technical aspects of playing an English concertina because he doesn't play one. Alan doesn't read music either so if three versions of a tune are posted he won't be able to pass comment on them unless midi files are added too. Dr. David Barnert is a formidable musician with a deep understanding of musical theory and an uncanny ability to transcribe a tune on the fly from a recording that is simply breathtaking. Any comments he made about musical style and interpretation I would listen to but he's so over my head in ability that I might not be able do as he suggests. David plays Hayden duet which once again isn't my system, I'm not sure if he has played English in the past but as far as I'm aware he probably won't understand my abiding fear of fifth jumps! I know little of Randy Stein other than that he is an awesome player of the English concertina and a fluent master of his craft, more than capable of passing comments on TotM contributions but as far as I'm aware has limited himself to making contributions himself rather than commenting. Good musicians (and there are many more thay haven't been named here) contribute to TotM and ThotM as and when it suits them. They would be horrified to discover that their mere presence was sufficient to drive other commentators away! Chill and enjoy the tunes! Edit: typos as always!
  11. Yes John, well spotted! Now corrected in the post.

  13. Sadly the MandolinTab converter screws it up too. Bit by bit all of the online converters are being corrupted and if you want to continue using abc files it's imperative that you download and use one of the dedicated and FREE software packages that make life so much easier to work with abc! Q for The Winter Night Schottische would be Q:1/4=140. Download and get used to: ABC Explorer (my recomendation) Easy ABC - a close second ABC Navigator - my least favourite bit of software but it is well proven and totally bomb proof! Ignore this at your peril, the online convertors are being made toast one by one! Pete.

  15. Well I own a hammered dulcimer that I made myself under expert tuition 25 years ago but I never got to grips with it, a great shame to be honest.
  16. I'm not yet convinced by this tune but that went a long way towards making me like it Graham! Whatever it is you're doing (I don't play anglo) keep on doing it because I was almost mesmerised by the end of the video.
  17. Looks as if the closing tag - was missing from your post.
  18. Yes, quite so! We have often been at loggerheads in the past Jim but here you are spot on. If maki's knowledge of musical theory is sketchy enough to ask for the notes that make up the basic triad of a minor chord then pointing out that the notes involved might be otherwise named and still sound the same in another key just muddies the waters. Introducing notes which are in fact double sharps or double flats and why it is correct to name them so starts to make things even more incomprehensible to a novice. Little by little we learn.
  19. Oh it certainly is, but you should look upon it simply as that, different. It's just another experience that is (properly) odd at first but oh so easy to become captivated by. Your first time out playing with WCCP was probably proper daunting, with Claire Wren at the helm everything must have scared the living daylights out of you but I bet you came away with a bit of a buzz you can't properly explain? A certain something that makes you want to go back there again and not feel quite so intimidated this time? G'wan, it's now several months down the line and you know you want to!
  20. I think it very important here that we don't loose sight of the fact that were honoured to be joined on this forum by a number of members for whom English is a second or even third language so nit-picking terminology is very unfair. I'm blown away by all of the contributions made on this forum by concertina players from all parts of the world, let's be nice and keep it that way!

  23. Addenum. Large turned brass screws on the thumb straps of the 'mahogany' ended 'tina say clearly to me 'not Wheatstone' At one time I would have said 'Lachenal' without a doubt but these days I work on fact alone. I'll stick with 'not Wheatstone'!
  24. I do find posts like this challenging. A link to an auction house website, a lot number and a sale date. Go to website, enter lot number into search window, nothing. Go to sale date page, enter lot number, I get an error. If you got as far as finding the lot including photos why can't you post a link straight to the sale item? Given that the pictures show the left hand end of an instrument with ebony or ebonised ends and an entire 48 button English with dark brown (possibly Mahogany) ends I'm not quite sure what's for sale here. I think I'd walk away from this unless it sells for silly cheap!
  25. I'm now turning off notifications from this thread (and probably the whole forum) so I'm unlikely to reply again any time soon. Best, Pete. Edit: typo
