How Do You Handle The G# In The Foxhunters Reel On Anglo? in General Concertina Discussion Posted November 4, 2013 The third setting for this tune on thesession.org looks off to me. I'm OK with the first two settings, but the third seems to me to be written in A (that is, most everything has been moved up a step so I'd expect the C's to be sharped) but its sheet music and ABC indicate it as G Major with C naturals. I'm not real familiar with the site but it appears to me that the sheet music might be generated off the ABC on demand rather than stored as displayed. That third setting appears to have been posted for five years without anyone questioning it, so it leads me to wonder whether the key indicated is incorrect and no one questioned it or if someone actually plays it as written with C naturals? Admittedly I don't get out to many sessions so maybe I've just missed hearing this approach, but I've tried it as written and don't like the outcome. I'm not a member there by the way, and don't know that joining to suggest something is wrong on the site would be good form. http://thesession.org/tunes/511 Any opinions on that third setting? From reading the comments on that thread, the third version of the tune is a transcription of Mairead ni Mhaonaigh playing it in the enclosed video. The key is wrong in the ABC, but apart from that the transcription is ok. Fearfeasog: I went to a teacher (whose qualifications are sterling), told her that I was struggling with the key of A major, and was given a version of Joe Cassidy's similar to this one: http://thesession.org/tunes/7938 That took a lot of time to get right, but my high G# was much steadier in all other tunes after that. Today they are flowing nicely (I play Jeffries layout and would use a pull A on the G-row with the G# (middle finger / ring finger)). I find deciding which A to use with my LHS G# more of a challenge. So my tip (as other contributors)is to give the hard parts a lot of mileage. If you can learn to alternate between pull A and push A with the G# on the RHS, well, you can do both, and will have more room to roam. Good luck!
