What tune is this?
« on: January 16, 2016, 10:59:00 PM »

Think it is tip top hornpipe into tip top polka. Plus is the second tune in g minor? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoEE7KGJPvI

You're right - both the tip-top tunes, but the second is being played on Dm/Gm boxes, giving it a somewhat Kletzmer sound!  The tuning allows the tune to be fingered as though in the major mode but results in the minor.  How many sides could turn out four of those boxes?  It does help when Martin is playing with them!

Think you are right and the Gent in shades appears to be Derek the Nutter (DTN) of this parish - his youtube channel features this pair of tunes at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RyY7WDmkog plus numerous other tunes either singly or with Jimbo - skill and style to both envy and aim for !
