Not this Paul Hardy - some other Paul?

 

Oh, I guess it's actually you I wanted to mention - I simply had noticed your visiting that "Beaumont Videos" thread, and that's where I found the link to The Button Box, so I thought the credits should go to you... ?

 

My apologies should I be mistaken here.

 

Anyway - best wishes , ?

Ah, so an accidental discovery then - I didn't know I had found the missing videos. ?

 

While I have a post open, and on the subject of modal tunes - We have already had a reference to the Rainbow Jigs, that were posted here by Pete Dunk in 2016. I was trying to play them recently and noticed a few minor problems with missing repeats etc, plus they were all notated in the abc as being in the key of G. Here is an amended abc, with each in its own mode:

That's lovely Paul, as I was already inclined to give them a try and am now able to rely on your improved coding!

So Paul (Hardy) has found the „lost“ video with David‘s playing (actually the 2nd)

 

Is it possible it was there all the time and I didn’t notice it because Aaron and I are both wearing gray shirts, so I assumed it was a picture of him?

Thank you. It's encouraging to me (I started the thread) that even back in 2016, I was savvy enough to spot those

problems and fix them for myself. I must be doing something right! Your chords are better than mine though, I ain't

got that right yet :unsure: ...

Resurrecting this old thread, as I've recently had a go at recording my Rainbow jigs, as posted in abc above. They're intended as a sort of illustrative set of tunes, of the way modes can typically sound. But other people have of course interpreted them in countless different ways, so just a specific contribution to the debate...
