Al, you'd already edited this before I saw the thread. Whatever you were trying to do I can probably talk you through it. PM the details mate and I'll see what I can do; if you'd rather talk it through in person give me a call - if you've lost the numer I'll send it again.

 

Don't take up fishing it's too much of a lottery. T'was once a great passion of mine until I badly injured a fish I caught just for sport , despite my (imagined) skill. I haven't touched a rod since.

 

Take solace in the fact that no tunes were harmed in your experiment. :P

I kept my foot reasonably still during this recording. A problem I have had with all the recordings I have ever done.I now insist on a mat or put my coat on the floor and play with my shoes off.

No Chris I will not be doing this at the George. Where I go. The Troops go.

There you go. Faster to do than to explain Even around the world a couple of times. It is a little large at 2.3MB though.

 

Thanks Alan

 

It's a nice listen to

To quote Shakespeare, "The dots, the dots, my kingdom for the dots!!"

Just listening to it now. Thanks to Leo for posting the MP3. Grand tune, thanks Alan.

Any chance of the tadpoles or an ABC?? from anybody??

Hi Jake,

 

If I was a betting man, I'd say that the dots are still in the depths of Alan Day's head.....somewhere. ;)

 

If you talk nicely to David Barnert, he may be willing to work the notation into ABC for you (assuming Alan is in agreement, of course!!!!). :unsure: Then we run into the copyright problem, since it's Alan's tune........maybe I should quit whilst I'm still marginally ahead.

 

Regards,

Peter.

Your bet wins Peter it is all in my head and I have no problem whatsoever with anyone writing out the dots,and Dave has served me well in the past in writing down my tunes,he is the master at it

and on giving me advice for improvements, which I welcome with open bellows..The base runs by the way are done with the little finger and ring finger.The tune is all played on the C row apart from the little twiddley bit at the end which can be ignored. I played it on my C Box for all of you who have CGs

"Tuneatron Tuneatron where for art thou Tuneatron"

OK, here's the abc.

 

Same caveats as the tutor: It's hard for me to tell what's part of the tune, what's an intended ornament, and what's a fortuitous slip of the fingers, and it's never quite the same twice. So here's my best shot at the tune. I've left out the chords. It should be easy enough to come up with some that work. My solution is different from Alan's (read between the lines of Alan's earlier posts in the other thread). I've set the tempo to match the mp3 file as close as possible when played through the tune-o-tron converter.

Alan has forwarded another tune for publication. He assures me is the same one as above played as a reel.

ManorRoyal_Reel.mp3

With thanks to Henk van AAlten for his great help. From his suggestion Audacity is a great program for manipulating MP3 files.

 

Thanks :D

Firstly, I love this tune............truly Alan, I think you will be the next Paul McCartney..........

However, when I listen to it , I hear it in 6/8 time not 4/4 time ie it's a slow reel.

I suppose it's a moot point really,but would you notate it in 4/4 with four sets of triplets per bar.Dave B. ?

Nonetheless, to me it has a great "traditonal " brass bandy feel about it.

I'm always a sucker for a new tune and I rather liked this one.

However, I could only hear a very strong 4/4 beat so here are the ABC's that I got!!
