  1. I took exception to one of the posts and said so in no uncertain terms. Another forum member who's opinion I respect (and who hasn't contributed to this thread) thought my post was rather OTT so as I'm logging out of the forum now and will be taking no further part for the foreseeable future I removed my remarks rather than leave an elephant in the room.
  2. I inadvertently posted a pulled quote from one of my earlier posts here which I have now removed. I don't understand how it happened as I was merely searching for an ABC which I then copied and pasted elsewhere. Somewhere along the line the whole of the very old post that I got the abc from ended up here.
  3. Oh dear, blocking a member is not an option on this forum. That's me gone then, thanks for all the fish. Pete.
  4. I did my best Jim but any tune I nominate and then vote for has the kiss of death attached!
  5. I don't think I've posted any part playing pieces in this thread before but here's a lovely old tune that goes a bit faster in this arrangement than it would normally be heard when played for church music. I think it's a good stand alone tune.

  6. Oh and if you want the midi file to play the whole tune as many times through as the final piece is intended to be, you'll have to write sufficient repeats into the music or invoke the parts (P:) command in the header in order to play the tune as many times as intended. This last can be, erm, quite trying.
  7. Here's the resultant mp3 file for Hornpipe No. 8 Hornpipe No. 8
  8. The right tool for the right job is what's called for here. Once you have the parts and full score exported as PDFs from ABC Explorer, export it as a midi file. Download and install a bit of free software that works with midis, I have a thing called Anvil Studio which is clunky but does the job. Open the midi file, assign voices to the parts, adjust relative volumes and right/left stereo spread, save the file. Okay you now have a slightly better midi file but it's still not sexy. Download 'Freemake midi to mp3 converter' and install it - being careful to decline any of the 49 thousand additional options (patience grasshopper!). Convert the midi file to an mp3 - now its an audio file! If you don't have it already, download and install Audacity and the Lame encoder that allows you to save MP3s. Now open your recently created MP3 file, hold down <ctrl> and press A to select all, from the Effects menu select 'Reverb' and accept the default values. Open the Effects menu again (the whole file should still be highlighted/selected) and select 'Normalise'. Once that is done save the file and the job is done. If any of this is unclear send me a PM or please feel free to email me: peterdunkATbtintenetDOTcom substituting capital letters for appropriate symbols. Pete.

  11. 3/2 tunes are weird, I'm not sure why but they are. Here's a four part concertina band arrangement I did earlier this week (all treble clef to avoid confusion for players who are constantly playing different parts and can afford a collection of beautiful vintage English concertinas). Writing this was the easy part (and yes, I know it's not an imaginative arrangement - this is new territory for me!) playing it is another thing however, I'm really struggling to get my fingers around the treble one part.

  12. Actually I think that's disturbingly close to the truth!
  13. And now for something completely different. Obscure folk tune gets given the trad jazz treatment. I can't find a reference to this anywhere on the net either as a recording (other than my Youtube link) or sheet music. The jazz source is Max Collie's Rhythm Aces but no reference on their website and it's not on any of the CDs. If it wasn't for the fact that I remember this tune well I might have thought that Martin had written this himself!

  14. Steve, if you have used the abc I posted you might want to change the last two notes of the third full measure to Bg instead of dg, I've edited my post accordingly.

  16. Here's a lovely slow air from Alistair Anderson's "Steel Skies" suite, The Air for Maurice Ogg. Alistair allows amateur use and recording of his music as long as he is acknowledged as the composer.

  17. I'm not sure that not providing a written score or abc transcription gets around copyright laws, in fact I'm certain that it doesn't in the UK at least. melodeon.net always seeks the composer's permission before a tune is allowed to be Tune of the Month. Most composers say yes to amateur only use but some (usually American composers) like Jay Ungar insist on wording along the lines of: © Jay Ungar. Used by permission. All rights reserved. To be posted with each recording. Without the composer's blessing I think TOTM submissions are on very dodgy ground, especially on the internet where international laws apply. My wife is a lawyer, I do not say this lightly!

  20. Great fun Wolf, well played and sung. I love the way you've picked out the key features of a multi-instrument arrangement and presented it in such a relaxed style. This song has been a favourite of mine for decades and I hope it will be a favourite of yours for many years to come. Have you heard a song called "When the Snows of Winter Fall"? You could really go to town on that one!
  21. You found it though, and what's life without a bit of a challenge? You'll be playing Josefin's Dopvals (Josephine's Christening Waltz) next . . . Oh, and the weird mechanical fiddle is a Swedish nykelharpa before you ask! Visit the Vasen website and scroll down a bit to watch some excellent videos. Roger Tallroth is the guitarist.
