Poll: Tune of the Month for September 2016
« on: August 25, 2016, 01:15:21 AM »

Hello all - four tunes from my much neglected 'all the nominated tunes' list (which it isn't); somehow or other, each of these has escaped being TOTM. Not quite sure how, but one of them's going to win this time! From the top:

Soldiers Joy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6wfiRJkABY ; thank you Lester, this demo will do nicely. As session standardy a session standard can possibly be!

Huntsman's Chorus - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5nLkklzZvk ; once again, Lester shows us this tune very nicely

Hunt the Squirrel - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpEfk0X0Ayk ; here played by Gavin Atkin

Faraway - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNMrTTVEpsA ; written by Pete Jung, a nice waltz here played by Hector...

There we go - happy voting!

Clive

I think I know that last one by a different name; named after a woman instead, though I can't remember the title. I have some sheet music for it lying around somewhere that I was given whilst in France last year. Buggered if I know where it is though ;D

Read the comments and follow the link in this post on The Session. Pete Jung is confirmed as the composer although the tune has managed to pick up a number of alternate titles.

Very nearly skipped over it after the first few bars, then it really grew on me. Simple playing is always beguiling. I'll be learning it, no matter what wins TOTM.

Just had a few more listens and decided to transcribe the Frank Lee version of Faraway that Arty linked to. It won't be absolutely accurate as I haven't got an instrument here to fiddle with - but it should be close enough to get people tinkering.

Hi Pete...The F in bar 17 on your sheet seems to me like it should be an F# - would that make sense?

Yes it would. I had it as an F because I'd adapted a more original version where it is an F chord and it slipped the net. Thanks, you can join Steve-Freereeder as my editor. I'll change it tomorrow.
