Here's a Hanukkah song whose name is somewhere along the lines of "We've Come to Banish the Darkness":

Further to my earlier post about the air button hole in base sound board  yes its not great to have a patch in it but if its well fixed and glued well it will never give any bother criticism  is not necessarily a bad thing if company take it on board and rectify any issues its good customer  service and on forums like this the maker can have a voice also if they wish to reply to posts

Excellent ! Might also be very useful for those of us who have memory problems as 'the bells' approach-  assuming of course that the fingers can still find the buttons by then ! :|glug

Thanks Julian.  It reminds me of so many past New Year's Eve gigs where I had to stay sober all night while all around me were getting drunk.  The fate of the professional musician!!!  :(

Hi,

https://youtu.be/YujAsyzzCU8

I have recorded this video lesson today.  It's specifically for beginners but it might come in handy for you if you want to play this on New Year's Eve and you can't be bothered to figure it out!  I've done it in G on a DG so not the best key for singing (a tad high!).  Play the same buttons on a CF or a Bb Eb and that will work better.

Make yourself a cuppa - it lasts for about 35 minutes!!

Sheet music attached.  Watch the video to make sense of the special annotations/note heads peculiar to my music sheets.

I hope that some people find this useful.  Let me know if you do.

All the best for 2018

Les

The Quebec section of the montreal session website needs to expand. I have many tunes, not enough time to transcribe. If anyone has abc versions of tunes, they can email them to me at robin.beech@mcgill.ca to put them on the site.

If you open a tune on the site, there is an edit link that will take to you the editor where you can easily transpose the tune.

You can do the same thing with any abc you find on a webpage using Jim Hawkridge's amazing javascript bookmark (http://jim.hawkridges.co.uk/projects/abcbookmarklet/)

Russians seem to manage pretty well, and I believe there is a range of quality. Tutorials in English may be a tad hard to find, though, and I'm not sure that the keys available line up with common keys here.

You can get them on German Ebay and I'm sure other places, they seem to get fairly good prices once you get away from the toy ones. There's a good few videos on YouTube.

But if you're a Vodka drinker and can do the accent, go for it :-)

My Tramontanes have F RH note on pull, with F chord on the bass.  As Squeezy says, this works well with 'one tone down' tunes in G.  I agree that it also is good with tunes in Dm and Am, because I have those chords (thirdless) in both directions.

Yes, I've wanted the G7 chord on push, but honestly, it's not the end of the world fudging round a four note chord.

Squeezy didn't mention the Bb chord situation, useful in Dm and Gm, where F needs to be on the push to accord with the push LH chord, as a fifth in the scale.  Fortunately however, there is a way round this for me, as I have the Bb, D and F notes on RH as pull, and this I have found to be really effective, against F or D bass, playing some Dm tunes.

With regard to the F# bass note, that is so useful as the third in D maj push to allow nice bass runs, and for me the pull note on that button is C# bass (third in the A major LH chord), so that works too with reverse bellows.

(PS: Squeezy, one day you'll be converted to 14 bass ergonomics, I bet you!)
