The "key" is F - the tune is set on the Eb diatonic scale (set of notes), starting 2nd note  (hence the fluid fingering)!

    So its the 2nd, "dorian", or "F" mode of Eb.  But rather more simply "F dorian"  :|glug


Aha! Thanks Chris!

Pleasure.  Quite a fine piece of Trolling if I might be so bold ;)

   Underlying issue is that if your scale (or box row) runs C D E F G ...
     .. the 7 "modes" of it will be in the "keys" of C D E F G :||:

Hows about

Sustead Schottiche
Lovely rendition, Lester!  (:)
Good steady tempo, great syncopation and nice subtle East Anglian-style ornamentation.

And today's tune is

Albert's Last Dance

Very nice Lester, I still love the Elphique sound, although I notice from the recording that it is the G-row that has the sweet tone, the D row is quite "rough" in comparison (compare the arpeggios at the start of the B part, played on the G-row with the next bar on the D row).

The early L'Elfique models do suffer from the inside row being more muffled because the MM reed block is tucked away right under the keyboard.  Later models have a row of holes in the keyboard top plate which reduce this effect quite considerably.

Yes I noticed that as well, luckily Theo has posted on how to cure it  (:)

My L'Elfique is the same as Lester's i.e. without the keyboard cutouts. I can't say that I've ever noticed the muffled effect but now, of course, I expect I'll be listening for nothing else!

If it weren't a stepped keyboard, I might take the cover off and cut some holes, but, as it is, I don't feel bold enough to start hacking it about.
