Tune of the Month for September 2019: Webley Twizzle
« on: August 31, 2019, 11:26:22 PM »

This month's tune is this great morris tune, which (as I have learned!) comes in 2 versions;

Saul's fantastic version of this with a 6 bar B music -  2nd tune on the set; the following link drops you right at the spot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3lrCIJCZIk&feature=youtu.be&t=124

... and here's an example of the more traditional version with a 5 bar B music - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqBXz-u0pl8 (no melodeon video of this yet, so this Albion Band version will do nicely)

Looking forward to see what you all come up with :-)

A new tune to me and an enjoyable way to spend a Sunday morning

Three ways, crossover tune but played AABB here. G 4 stop, D/G Pokerwork and Bb/Eb Erika.

All the best

Bill

Here's a Webley Twizzle on my Oakwood. Two rows, three keys. Even some interesting bass possibilities in C.

My version of the webley twizzle. My first entry of tune of the month.
 I do not know anything about (Morris) dance, I simply associate this melody with my Grandfather's clock. Janneke

Haha, wonderful!

This is very nice, I like the gradual move up the keyboard. A little surprised not to see a glance at playing it in A in there though... contrasts with Bill's gradual descent (also into more complicated chords)

Also, a direct source of sheet music & ABC, for those who'd wish for a link:

I tried A, but the G# really got in the way, especially as it's still a push note on the Oakwood. It would have taken more time than I felt like devoting to it.

I tried minor keys too, but abandoned that for similar reasons of what you could call laziness.

Well, I don't think you could ever call getting a cracking, in-3-keys submission in on the 2nd day of the month 'laziness'! I just saw the notes and thought to myself hmm! That could work in A, that. Simply left as an exercise for others, perhaps!

Nicely played, and a lovely sounding box with that single reed sound.

My contribution for The Webley Twizzle.

I voted for this tune. It's a lovely little tune that I have been meaning to learn for years.
I have all sorts of ways of making it more interesting but, as always, my fingers do whatever they want as soon as I press record.

Three times through. Played pretty straight.  It finishes a bit abruptly. I had one more round to play but fingers decided no. They were going to stop.

Straightforward playing. I like it. Well done. :)

It's a shame really, it was the best variation I have ever come up with. Now the world will never hear it  8)
 
[edit: truth is, I was was just recording to see how it sounded and I felt I had captured the things I wanted. I had worked a lot on steadying the tempo and trying to get a rolling feel to it. Twiddles and triplets weren't what I wanted. I decided I wasn't going to improve enough, on what I had, already, to justify the diminishing returns, so I am better off moving on to the theme.]

I really like it, Greg - played with gusto and confidence!

I find this tune a bit cramped at the bottom of the keyboard. I wonder how it feels/sounds in the upper octave. Hoping to get more practice time in now that my kids are back in school and I have some time on my own in the mornings again.

Thank you Jess. Have fun in the land of the upper octave  (:)

Hello all, here we go, my version of Webley Twizzle

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJ2ZU1_6Jtk

I struggle to remember this tune; seem to have a bit of a mental block thing going on. Once I've got the first bar or so, I'm off, but the number of times I've had to listen to other recordings to remind myself how it goes is just unreal. Why is that I wonder?

Played on a D/G Castagnari Mory...
