Now that you have kindly said you will group em all in one big file at the end, I am expectantly waiting for that. Be good if the seasonal ones (e.g.Auld lang syne also come with a click ready midi -- tho I think I know how that one goes!!)so one can peddle them about over the holiday.

 

*Splutters* Embeded midi player??? What do you think this is? You'll be wanting me to come around to yours and play it for you next!

 

Seriously, the embedded javascript midi thing on abcnotation.org and similar sites is very limited and can only play a single voice, in fact it can only play a single note at any one time. There doesn't seem to be much point writing out an arrangement only to have the midi player strip it bare! :rolleyes:

Is it your round then? I'll have a pint of Laphroaig, ta. Oh and there's little chance that this will be finished before Christmas so the festive tunes may be to late for this year . . .

Did #54 actually have 7 bars in the B section? I thought I knew this song....

 

Apparently not. The B music has eight bars and I seem to have dropped one out so I've edited the abc and grafted in something that seems to fit. ;)

 

Is it really a song? I only know it as a tune and I've never seen any lyrics!

Well I thought it was a song, but I can't find lyrics anywhere, so I must be mistaken.

The chorus fits with my recollection of the words, though I don't remember hearing the verses often enough for them to have stuck in my mind.

As a great fan of the William Shields theme and variations arrangement of this tune, I'm less than impressed with Carlo Minasi's efforts here. The bounder should be ruddy well horse-whipped I would say!

All of these settings seem to lean heavily on the song versions. Which, in my opinion, sometimes makes them all a bit mundane. I'd see them as useful as "fill" instrumental verses in songs, but less useful standing on their own. Still, they are useful for other reasons, and they really do seem to fit the concertina.

Here's the next one. I'm painfully aware that there are two semiquavers that shouldn't be there in the second line but that's the way it's written honestly! I'm in favour of dropping both of them because they are meaningless . . .

 

(The file below has since been edited and is now deemed to be musically correct)

 

A number of posts over the next twenty or so following this one contained discussions about how best to deal with incorrect note lengths in the piece. These have been edited out as they are now irrelevant and of no particular interest so if you see a post that only contains 'X:60' you'll know why!
