So here's to Witney
I'm Off To Witney - a tune written (hopefully) to lie well on a D/G (i.e. not going too high). It does need the two accidentals I normally have access to.
As usual I forgot to put a tempo marking. It's an alert Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, type of speed.

Nice catchy tune! I like the 'I'm off to Witney' motif which keeps recurring. ;)
You mention the two accidentals...
On your D/G version, the D#4 in bar 15 is not available on a standard 2-row D/G box, it's the D#5 instead and which occurs in bar 25. The G#4 in bar 23 is OK.

Thanks, Steve - I've got the low accidental on my box, and knew that it was unlikely to be available to others - hopefully they'll just use their B major left hand chord to provide the harmony. I couldn't resist using it anyway. One of the many reasons that these tunes will stay on the shelf, I suppose. Still good fun writing them.

Yes, that will work fine.

Here's a Soundcloud version.

In honour of our recent little tune-title spat; a new tune. On a recent post (help me remember the tune and thread!?) someone said it felt like a certain tune had been around for ever, so I felt challenged to write a new tune with an old feel. Hence the Latin.
Hope someone feels the urge to play it. I've given a suggested rhythm for the left hand to help drive it along a bit. The last accidental is optional - happy to stay with the modal feel.
Angustia in mola
EDIT - typo in DG version - second chord should be Am, not Em. I'll correct soon. Fixed now.

And here's a quick blast through Angustia in Mola, on the 3 voice Sander.
The youtube version is under its English title Trouble at Mill

In response to theme of the month for December 2016 - a new tune to old words - Hark the Herald, but as a lullaby. I've never really liked the original tune (not saying mine is an improvement) as it seems too dictatorial - you will hark or else!
I've only included a pdf in C as I think transposing it will make it harder to sing. I'll copy this to the Theme of the Month too. Ideally I'd record it sung with melodeon accompaniment. Not sure if I'll manage that.

Here's a straight to video recording of Hark the Herald. I need a quicker way of recording with a decent sound without setting up the laptop each time - this is just the video camera sound.
I think this tune deserves better, but then it needs a singer too. I can hear a great version in my head. Hey ho (or should it be Heigh Ho?). Identical post in the Theme of the Month for December 2016. Sorry if that makes life messy.

Just to keep my hand in with cross rowing while I learn the push pull techniques, a tune deliberately written to have as much cross rowing as possible.
Roulette
Audio to follow sometime (and I've put up an Em version for D/G players  - especially as it doesn't go very high).

Here's a wistful piece - hopefully the constantly changing time signature is more organic than it appears. Figure of Speech

And a melodeon version of Figure of Speech.
It's done on a new to me video camera - hopefully with better results. It has a mic jack and I'm using a Sony Electret condenser mic which plugs straight in. I haven't altered any settings and no audio editing has been done. I have cut out a wrong note directly on the video, and as usual the purpose of these videos is to share the tune, rather than to demo my playing. However, this time, I'm also interested in the new camera / mic results.

Thank you so much. The music is a pdf just a few posts above yours (no. 130) let me know if you can't find it. The blog doesn't take pdfs, so I've got a bit slack about updating it.

A new tune in support of the Tune of the Month theme - I set out to write a lazy summer's day boating song, and not in A minor for once.
It's called Punting

A very nice tune! Would you please transpose it two semitones up, i. e. two sharps?
