Poll: Tune of the Month for February 2013
« on: January 24, 2013, 11:30:24 PM »

It's time again folks - vote away!

In Continental Mood - Narrowly missed out last month. A beautiful waltz written by Andy Cutting, here played by our own Roland, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBGs7G8OCzI&NR=1, and here by the man himself, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcdmqDEM5mo (first tune). Rather less well known than Flatworld (the second tune that both Andy and Roland play) it's typically played with. Be prepared to get acquainted with the squeaky end...

The Gypsy Princess - nominated courtesy of Gavin's accidental posting, a lovely Irish barn dance tune, here played by Gavin himself - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F14Kyxvnlcs - there's also slowed down versions of it at the end of his video. What more could you want?

Tich's Reel - let's pick another from the Ed Rennie youtube tunebook - this one, written by northumbrian fiddler Willy Taylor. Here's Ed's lovely version -  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AR_GMPvnuw

The Rose Tree - I think it's time I plundered Lester's excellent tunaday project; and here we are, Lester playing The Rose Tree: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkzS8JPtgQE . When i play this, it's normally in the upper octave on the outside row, but your preference may be different. In fact, my goodness, *this* is how I play it - a little different to Lester's B music, but you get the idea (first tune) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoT3Bx1VGnw . Yes, that funky bass is perfectly playable on an 8 bass (although I'm using a 12 bass in the video), and it's not terribly hard either...

Vote away folks!

Cheers,

Clive
