Tune of the Month for August 2016: Oyster Girl
« on: August 01, 2016, 07:44:58 AM »

Here we go folks - a rather nice 32bar jig in G; there's also a rather nice third part that makes it a 48 bar jig too which I'm sure someone will only demo in a bit.

Enjoy
Clive

48 bar Oyster Girl  is middle tune in this set from 2011, now to see what we can do with it for this month.

All the best

Perfectly doable on a 1 row in either octave.

I wouldn't dream of playing it any other way than on one row 'cos the 'bounce' comes free of charge!

Well done. I think someone should lock me in a room with a one row for a week and not let me out until I could play something.

Yes P&T you should get a 1 row. I haven't really got the hang of it, but it's a lot of fun all the same.

A few years ago Forrest (of this parish) posted the following, which for me, sums up the glories of playing a one-row box:

It forces you to make the decision of what to leave in and what to leave out, as well as what to fake. You must be decisive in selecting the note you are using, as a mis-step can be alarming. Also, since the ins and outs are pretty much the same up and down the row as on a standard 2- or 3-row, you will get a  better feel of where the notes are and to anticipate if a note is a pull or push. It stimulates the mind to think quickly a bit ahead of the fingers.
   
A one-row puts you directly in the drivers seat for rhythm; since you have fewer choices melodically (no dreamy chords or bass runs or cross rowing), you have to dance the notes out of the box to make it interesting. It's more of a lesson in playing the box than playing a tune.
 
I have found that all these things (and other subtle effects) help make my 2- and 3-row playing better, because they are fundamental to all diatonic boxes. It's also fun to see what you can do with fewer bells and whistles.


The italics are mine - I particularly liked this bit!  (:)

Sounds pretty good to me. Is that a mic lead hanging off the bass end?

Further on in Steve's quote from forrest, he says, "you have to dance the notes out of the box", and you certainly seemed to be doing that in your lovely video, penn!
I love the sound of Mr Grumpy, also a 114 in A which was featured the other day. They're so rich, I just love them. (Now to find a distressed one somewhere, for small money of course!)

Thanks Greg & Edward. Yes it is a mic cable, I've settled on a fairly simple recording regime these days - a small cardioid on the right side, and a tie clip AKG lavalier mic (I think it's designed for tv presenters) clipped to the bass strap. I usually back off the clip mic, and tweak the pans to make the stereo narrower. I suppose I should get a clip-on for the right side too, then I could dance around the room a lot more. (:)

I don't know about all this "tweaking" which you techies all go on about! Isn't it tantamount to musical "Photoshopping"?

Yep, All I ever offer is, as they say in the photography world, Straight Out of the Camera, a Lumix TZ20 in my case. None of your cheating here ):)

Cheating? I do use a digital camera, but in my opinion it makes better pictures than sound recordings, so I usually use the camera for images, and record the sound separately using microphones.
Did my recording sound photoshopped? I knew I should never have touched the blasted reverb. It won't happen again m'lud.

Steve, your recording sounds fine, and I've no idea whether your tweaking has altered what a listener would hear. Nevertheless, your (Double Dutch to me) statement "I usually back off the clip mic, and tweak the pans to make the stereo narrower." surely gives the impression that what we are listening to isn't quite real any more.
It's not only you, and I'm certainly not having a dig at you, but I've noticed one or two more posters mentioning other ways that recordings are altered. It's something we all expect from professional recording artists, but I just wonder if it has a place amongst friendly forum member players, most of whom seem to be amateurs?

I guess it doesn't matter as long as you know.
Otherwise some of us could get somewhat dispirited  :-\
