I was at a session this week when some of the musicians played Jinky Wells' Harvest Home. Having been brought up reading the dots, I have tried since to locate the music, but all I can find is the Irish Harvest Home, a different tune altogether. Any suggestions, please?

Hmm .... that would be me playing I guess

 

I play by ear as you know and can't do the dots at all but the following abc was dotted out by a friend and based on how I remember the tune from the playing of Jim Harding, about 30 odd years ago.

 

Don't know where Jim's original source material came from, and sadly he died a few years back, so I can't ask him now.

 

Hope you can make sense of it .... it is a cracking tune

The third measure in the third line has 4 1/2 beats, and the second measure in the fourth line has 5 beats. I suspect that's not quite right.

 

 

Like I said - Try as I might, I can't do dots at all ... I just play it! :lol:

 

The only 'measure' I ever knew was 'a pint' ...... and even that is denied me now :(

 

Can anyone who knows the tune offer corrections please ???

Without knowing the tune... this sounds sensible - I assume it's playeed at a nice brisk clip

ps is it a hornpipe like the standard Harvest Home.(ie played with swing)?

It feels to me as if it could be the melody for a song.

For the combination of "Harvest Home" and "lyrics", Google gives me "About 142,000 results". So I did the same search restricted to the mudcat.org site, and even that gave 639 results. I checked a few, but none fit the tune. I don't really have time to check them all, especially since song tunes often outlive the songs themselves.

 

But I do wonder.

Are these the notes you play? I know the instrument and maybe speed aren't correct.

Measures are bars on the European side of the pond. Could be confusing in pubs :lol:Jinky Wells 'Harvest Home'.mp3
