Playandteach tune book
« on: June 17, 2016, 10:03:53 PM »

This is the kiss of death - but because I've written a few tunes recently it seems like a better idea to keep them in one topic. On the umbrella principle it might just guarantee that I never write another.
I'll add the other recent tune links to here, too.
So here is the tune (audio to follow):
I've called it The Last Schmaltz

In order to thwart the umbrella law, here is another piece.
It's called Flânerie.
Quick Soundcloud version here (mic's too close so watch your ears).

Here's the fake Swedish tune which I called Tillbaka Vagen (but may retitle in English at some stage).

A Simmer Tree (Asymmetry - Geddit)
Recording is rushed, I know, but it should give you a flavour of the tune. For me this thread isn't about the recordings, but just getting the tunes out there. Of course, better performances would help, but...

Oh go on then - I couldn't resist the clamour for more tunes.

Here's one I wrote tonight called Don't Wake the Baby. It's about a father who has his mates round for a bit of a session (in the playing sense) but the baby's mum has different ideas, and they have to keep changing dynamics depending on the presence of the mum - she doesn't want the baby to wake up, so every time she opens the door they all sheepishly play particularly quietly, but instantly forget the moment she's gone again.
The intro is the baby's wailing set to music.
Audio to follow sometime soon.
Tempo is Tie me Kangaroo Down, Sport.

Here's the audio on soundcloud for Don't Wake the Baby
I've added a small note in the main quiet motif, so that the words "Don't wake the baby" are now rhythmically part of the tune - so I've amended the score and uploaded it here.

Anyway, here's another tune - No More Fridays - in honour of my new working contract.

And here's a soundcloud version - on piano this time as I haven't had a chance to practise it on melodeon.
I've changed a couple of chords, Here's the amended pdf.
No More Fridays

Here's a tune for my daughter, Tabatha. She's a great flute player, but seems to prefer dance, which she's also pretty good at. Think of a Pas de deux in a Tchaikovsky Ballet (only where the dancers are good enough to dance it up to speed).
It's called Hexham Tabby
Audio to follow sometime.

I like the held drone notes, (half notes), in some of the measures. It is effective and creates a very moody atmosphere for the piece. It also sounds "Delicq" like.

Anyway like the tune.

That'll do me for the first feedback on this thread (apart from a well received thumbs up for a tune title).
Thanks for the support.

And here's a tune for my daughter's friend who came up from London to stay this weekend. Indianna Sheet music and melodeon version to follow when laptop is back working again (this is just a camcorder audio of piano version)
And here's the score - I used musescore for the first time, as I couldn't get into my laptop for Sibelius (fixed now).
