Something For The Weekend?

Recommended Posts

Here's a tune I'm enjoying playing at the moment. I found it written in the key of D but every C in it was an accidental natural, I have therefore taken the liberty of writing it in the key of D Mixolydian which only has one sharp.

I have a note of that in Dmix, but there are some variations:

"Sounds" nice when just reading the sheet. Impatiently looking forward to rehearsing it.

 

Thanx a lot! :)

yikes; three sharpes...that will make me think really hard; what is the official key name for three sharpes? more music basics for me. Michelle (will it play on tune-o-trone? for hints)

Well..., that depends... (there would be a total of seven "modes" in any case).

 

This one is written in the key of "A", as you may read following the "K:" (for "key" :) ) just before the first note (and it sounds like that indeed).

 

Means "A major" or "A Ionian".

It's in the key of A major and yes the Tune-O-Tron will play it quite happily but here it is in both Gmaj and Dmaj although then you are either playing down in the dungeons or up at the dusty end!

OK, the Gmaj I like better than the D--D gets too high; this is a hoot of a tune. I love how it slingshots down to those low notes. (I think I'm a baritone gal at heart.....) I alternated all weekend between Air for Maurice Ogg/ Jumping Jack, and this new Maidstone Hall. And thanks for extending my music theory you guys! Michelle

I'm really pleased you are enjoying it, even more so that the Steel Skies tunes are to your liking, that's what the thread is all about! :)

I came across this tune today, it's uncannily like The Banks of the Dee in a minor sort of way.

Sounds just like Banks of the Dee - but a bit higher up!

This is pretty much the version that I play

Here's a showpiece tune that I used to play, a nice one for practicing triplets, and low G# and C# fingerings. I remembered this one after the thread on Random (Notes/Jig), since I learnt them both around the same time and they';re close together in the music folder. I haven't played either much for a while, since they aren't session tunes locally, but this is fun. Enjoy!

After the discussion in another thread, I've added a pdf of the score. I read music and can see the point in displaying something here that I would guess the majority of tune learners can read enough to see if they'd like to try it, But I do like the small size and handiness of ABC notation. Coming from an age of SLOW dialup modems and limited storage space, the pdf is approx 20 times larger than the ABC. I can cut and paste the ABC into a variety of applications with the sweep of a mouse to produce a clean score in whatever size and shape I need.

A jpg or a gif of a score can be huge and still not sharp, especially if not made with care. I often find that I have to transcribe these offerings to make them more readable (I use Noteworthy notation software to create scores)

You've confused me now Chris. When you mentioned low G# and C# I was thinking the sharp above middle C on the left hand (^C)and the sharp one semitone higher than the lowest note on a treble concertina (^G,). The G# and c# within the stave are a doddle! ;)

There are some phrases that I find a personal challenge.

The middle C# on the left hand is a bit of a stretch, and for the G# (on the stave) there is one phrase where it works better to play the Left hand G# but another is easier if I use the right hand Aflat ... so I have to practice getting them right !

I must admit that middle C# is a pain (for some reason), you could always cheat and play it in G. ;)
