Tune Of The Month, April 2014: Zelda

Recommended Posts

So here is my first approach to

Zelda.

The four takes were rather to make the A-part sound as intended, not for the B-part...

 

(uncut live recording as before - extra percussion effect on the same track, rattling buttons :D )

Thanks for the hints on the chording :) Here is my first attempt at recording... Please don't laugh, it's EXCEEDINGLY slow... But, as of last Saturday morning, I had never even touched a concertina, so I'm pretty proud of myself!! There's a couple of mistakes, and one brain cramp where I lost my mind for a half second... but all in all, not too bad for a first attempt I don't think... I'm planning to get it up to speed before the end of the month, and I think it will be fun to come back and listen to the first attempt :)

One week on concertina? That's really impressive.

Nothing to laugh about in any way, and you're very likely to proceed further on in a little while... I'm glad that the hints appear to have been of some help! And as to speed, I might slow it a bit down myself... :D

Indeed the second part doesn't work well with treble, sounds a bit chaotic - but the third part is great and gives an idea of what you had in mind for the second part. Hope you'll find a baritone and play a trio, can't wait to hear it happen :)

Hi Chas!

 

Albeit I'm very much focussed on that one person, one concertina, happening live thing myself, I must admit that I realy like the third section too!

 

Best wishes - Wolf

Here's mine.

Perfect as always :)

 

 

Oh... not perfect in my ears, but merely acceptable. After 30 takes I gave up and went with the best of the bunch. I can play the tune, but when you add in the visuals... what with the eye rolling and sighing, grimacing, expletives and such... well I almost threw in the towel in trying to make this video.

Here's mine on youtube. I made it with an I-Pad.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRfVfymWjGA&feature=youtu.be

 

I tried to use standard harmony but also pedal of A and sometimes three in two rythm...

 

I made a simultaneous recording with a couple of studio mics but when I put the sound of this recording on the I-Pad video, I don't know if it is because of a problem of synchronization but it looks like play-back... So I prefered let the sound of I-Pad for the video and for those who want to listen the "studio" recording here is the soundcloud link. it is exactly the same take.

Lovely, Thomas. I found myself dancing from beginning to end! :)

All of it is great, but the last part is simply stunning. You're setting the highest standards in playing duets, as always.

Love the variations and the use of drones. A very accomplished version that makes great use of your unique instrument.

Great left hand work: combination of chords and drones; that great run down last time through; and how do you maintain the tune with your right hand while playing a different rhythm with your left? Lovely playing.

wow thank you to all ! :)

However I think that tempo is sometimes a bit pressed because my brain was too busy with left hand...

(See you now on "theme of the month!..)

Jody, a question.

 

In the second measure, A part: the fingering on the F-E-D run is tricky on a GD/Jeffries.

 

I can't really see in your video: do you use the same finger to go from the F to the E on the middle row, just sort of sliding down, or do you drop down to the E on the bottom row using a different finger? I always assume that hitting consecutive notes with the same finger is bad form, but often find that difficult to put into practice.

 

Playing Zelda in Am on the G/D works great for me except for that awkward run.
