Here's a tune I wrote yesterday, trying to get more conflict between melody and chords - of course it has ended up being Latin infused.
I met a nice young man yesterday evening (Samuel) at the Newcastle playgroup, and as he is also a GC player we shared some ideas. So in honour of the mutual learning process this tune is called Sambiotic. Of course I enjoyed meeting the others equally, my heart is still a fifth lower though.

Here's a Contrechant for Valse Triste. It strikes me that having two separate lines is useful for differentiation in a playgroup, so it is something I'm spending some time on.
I'll come back to record them and upload DG keys too.

Here are a couple of recordings - GC version of Marianne. DG version of Valse Triste. Both with countermelodies.
The playing is very square, just to get the parts to fit with limited technology.

Not my tune - I think it's an old Russian one, and most of the arrangement was something I found by Gilbert Poirier.
Danse Lente Des Femmes.

Here's Two in a Bed, played on the 3 voice setting DG. First time through by itself, then A part against B part, then the other way round (which of course sounds the same).

Here's Small World Café with both sections played against eachother. Shouldn't have recorded the left hand in both parts - or someone needs to give me a recording lesson or two.
Anyway, it gives an idea of how it sounds.

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.

Here's a Tango - Tango Caupenne, written this evening, but once on paper I found that it had a lot in common with Tango Suedois. I don't know how close is too close, but seeing that Tangos are often greatly similar I thought I'd still put it up here.

EDIT
Just tidied up a couple of points.

Here's tune I found on the net where all the parts work together.
I'll create a separate thread for tunes where parts can be combined so that people can add tunes from their own collections.
