Here's one for Steve Freereeder.
Tin Tin Tin
It's for GC. But could work on a 3 voice DG
Files replaced to correct spelling! Notes are the same, dedication is corrected.

Ey-up - I'm right chuffed! Thank you! :|bl
Can't help wondering why you chose the title and tune for me particularly? I'd better learn it now! 

(Actually there's a 'p' in my name, not a 'b', but we'll not let that stand in the way....)

I was under the impression that Tin Tin Tin was a Sheffield self-aimed joke that outsiders wouldn't understand them when they say 'It isn't in the tin'.
That's the title explained.The piece has a couple of classical music references (to Bach Badinerie and Mahler 1). And I also wondered whether it might work on a 1 row. I also thought I could write a countermelody for Vicky too. I did include some metrical displacement in the A section too, thinking you might appreciate the device.
So not just an afterthought!

Here's another. Trying for simpler melodic shape and fewer chords, more regular phrasing - but allowed myself an irregular time signature.
7 Ate 9

Here it is with some chordal accompaniment - or to use as a middle section.

Here's a version of 7 Ate 9. It's a bit clumsy, but it won't get any better until my hand strain has improved, so I'll leave it at that for now.

Blooming heck Steve, that's tiny print. Didn't spot it. I'll amend it and re-upload.

Just spotted a couple of clangers when joining countermelody and tune of Bonny at Morn, which is a shame because I quite like the countermelody.
I'll rejig it. It's a simple enough fix harmonically, but I don't want to lose too much of the character of the bit I added.
Ok, this should work better now. Sorry if you didn't get to play it, Arty (or worse, played it and wondered how I could think that it worked in a couple of places).

I went to my first session with a box on Thursday, followed by a village band rehearsal this morning. Lots of kind people looking after me. They even did a tune on purpose that no-one knew, and threw in a French one to keep me happy.
So I wrote them a tune.

Here's a great tune, not by me, but I've added a Contrechant (someone please tell me if I'm not using that word appropriately).
The DG version works better with a low voice added.
Adieu Ma Dedee

Hi Pete - my concertina friend and I are enjoying playing this lovely arrangement very much indeed, so thank you for the contrechant, which works really well. I play the melody and the concertina plays the contrechant.
Now that I have buttered you up(!), I am going to be really cheeky  ;)  A very competent penny whistle player is going to join us for our Sunday practice sessions and we thought that a (not sure what to call it) descant line would be rather good, hanging over the melody of this tune. What do you think? I know that you are a very busy man but I thought I would pluck up the courage to ask if you could help with some ideas.
Don't worry if you don't have time, I understand and I hope you don't mind me asking.

Without knowing his skill level, or choice of whistles I decided to add a flute part which will need adapting to the comfortable octave depending on his own range. The top F is in any case likely to be missing on most D whistles - so feel free to adapt - or get back in touch when you've had a go and know his boundaries. I can't auralise how piercing the top notes would be on a whistle, they'd sound gentle enough on a flute.

Oh Pete, that’s so generous and so quick! What can I say?
I’ll let you know how we get on! Thank you, thank you  (:)

Here's a link to a computer generated recording. Naturally it will sound clumsy with the balance etc. not being musical.

That is going to sound fantastic! I can’t thank you enough Pete. We haven’t played together today but hopefully next Sunday. I’ll let you know how we get on 😊

An elderly clarinet player collapsed with the cold in the Hexham Village Band open air Christmas market performance yesterday. So here's a tune for when he's recovered. Written for DG
