The second tune here 'The Lads like Beer' is usually played at a very fast pace (see Saul Rose & Eliza Carthy, Blazing Fiddles) so I'm submitting it under the 'fast tunes played slowly (or at least slower)' category. I usually pair it with The Wonder Hornpipe so that's why that's there.

Faster than I'd usually play it...unless I was playing it fast for a specific reason... >:E

Rough and ready but suited to purpose...

Here are two lively tunes : New Pneus (Andy Cutting) and Le petit bleu (me). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VizfDw-r-CM&feature=youtu.be

I used to play New Pneus in C (on my G/C/acc. melodeon), but I chose to play it in G instead so I could use the low voice without it sounding muddy. It was quite tricky to relearn!

As usual, I really enjoyed seeing all the entries.

Thanks for posting this, Pierre-Emmanuel. Really good playing.

Makes me think that I should also try to learn New Pneus to broaden my Andy Cutting repertoire. :)

Edit: On a related note, do you have the dots or abc for the song? Or does anyone else on here? Would really appreciate it because I couldn't find anything in a quick search for it on the interwebs.

I don't really do fast tunes. Here's a morris tune and Irish set dance played faster than the usual dance tempo. This is the first take, warts and all (for some reason I played the A part through  twice, first time round, but only once the second time). I was planning on speeding up a tad on this tempo but I probably won't get the chance to record that now.

Fred wanted the dots or abc for Nue Pnues. Below is what I play with my chords, though not sure where I got the abc from!
Enjoy

Suppose that invalidates it as an entry in this thread, but that's probably all you're getting from me (:)

I think I would enjoy playing for NW morris. I love this tempo.

Ooh didn't see this last month; good choice of tunes! I picked up the James Hill book last year and it's got some real corkers in it (:)

Thanks - glad you enjoyed them. I keep going back to James Hill's tunes at regular intervals. Will keep me challenged for a long time to come I'm sure.

If I'd known James Hill tunes counted I would have posted this. The Redesdale Hornpipe, AKA Much Wenlock rather rushed with excruciating phrasing  ;D

The most interesting thing about this thread is the different ways we think of "fast tunes." It's kind of liberating.

Thanks to Saul Bailey for introducing me to a pair of great tunes. John of the Green book ordered now.

It's great, I ordered it a month or so ago. Shipping across the pond was an additional £11, but well worth it in the end. I like that the introduction includes a good discussion of the history of these tunes, and I also like that all the primary sources are cited for the tunes.

I'm not nearly ready to play the vast majority of the tunes in the book, but it is fun to look through!

Does it have chords with it, or just melodies?
