In and out the dusty bluebells
« on: May 28, 2009, 09:38:08 AM »

'In and out the dusty bluebells'..I've been trying to learn to play it by ear...but I keep running out of buttons. >:(
Help please?
It repeats a bit at the begining three times but second time goes lower and that's where I get stuck...coz I can't got lower and it still sound right coz there's no more buttons.
Grrrrrr.
apart from that I think I've got it.

bw.I'm playing it on the 'g' row. Only way I can think of solving it is playing the low bit on d row....but not sure if thats right.

Not quite sure exactly what you mean by the 'lower' bit on the second time. Perhaps you know the tune differently from me.
Can you send a sound clip?

On a general point; just because you are playing in the key of G, it doesn't follow that you have to stick to the G-row. Some parts of some tunes will need you to switch to the D-row for a while. That's OK and as it should be. You are just beginning to find out more about the possibilities of the 2-row melodeon. It's more than just two 1-row instruments stuck together.

I'll record one tonight.
Oh this is the CD (although I have the 'tape' from when I was little...it was my fave nursery rhyme tape)

Well I was thinking what would I do on the concertina if I got stuck....go to the other row so I gave it a try.

Or there's always the upper octave, squeaky though it may be...

Yes, it is right, and in particular, you will need the D row for the E immediately below G, which is used in loads of G tunes but doesn't appear on the G row. Fiddle about and you'll find it. When you put the basses in, you'll find that you often want to put a C there -- which handily comes in both directions.

It might be worth getting hold of some of the booklets and CDs in the series Mally's Melodeon Methods by Dave Mallinson. The series includes Absolute Beginners, G/D Country Dance Volumes 1 and 2 and G/D Morris Volumes 1 and 2. I mention these because right from the outset Mally recommends learning tunes by playing across the rows for a number of reasons, all of which make it easier to play the tunes. Getting into the habit of playing across the rows would solve your problem with tunes like In and Out the Dusty Bluebells.

Linking this to another thread, working through Mally's CDs and booklets would also show you how to play a number of tunes that are played regularly at sessions. If you learnt them, you could start them in sessions knowing that others would join in because most session musicians know them. That was how I started and it worked for me! ;)

I think I'm going to put a video up and let you all tell me if I'm doing it right.... I'm sure I'm not cross-rowing conventionally.....but it sounds ok to me.

I may be wrong here but as far as I know this tune originated from a gaelic tune 'Chan eil mo leannan ann an seo' (my sweetheart isn't here). I should have the music somewhere if anyone is interested.

I always thought the bluebells were "dusky".  :-\ Do you have the words please, LDT?  :|||:

My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

Dusty or dusky, - it depends which part of the country you lived in when you learnt this.

Sounds a bit like Bobby Shaftoe 'A'-music to me! But they are similar tunes. Sounds OK. You could use the chords you've learnt for Bobby Shaftoe for this.

Funny you should say that as everytime my head ran through bobbie shaftoe...it always changed into 'in and out the dusty bluebells'...so I thought I'd give it a go.
