Month? What Month?! It's Just A Tune.

Recommended Posts

Thank you, Patrick.

 

And what's happening in measures 4 and 12 (or the latter halves of 2 and 6, depending on whether you hear it in 2 or in 4) of the B section?

Lovely playing with a nice lilt and good choice of chord notes. I "hear" the tune much slower and have found at the tempo I hear it doesn't seem to be very suited to concertina. But you make a strong case for both the tempo and the fit with the instrument. Thanks for stretching me.

What month? Next month... I hope. ;) I'll be travelling today and tomorrow, and then this month is over. :o (And still more travelling before I can attempt to record anything.)

 

Good on you, David, for starting (continuing?) this.

I've set aside some time this weekend to do this, and now I've done it.

 

 

Really nice. Shows off the capabilities of the duet. More of a bounce than most versions I"ve heard - I like that a lot.

Well, in 4 and 12 there is a run from the 2nd down to the preceding 5th followed by a jump up to the 4th.

The latter half of 2 also starts on a 2nd and ends on a 4th, but that does not echo in 6...

I seem to be missing whatever you are trying to help me see. Enlightenment please?

It's the runs from 2 to 5. In music, 2 is to 5 as 5 is to 1. So what am I doing with my left hand? Playing an A major chord (with a C# that's not in the key of G). Secondary dominant, 5 of 5. We've been here before...
