5 Mazurkas by Maarten Decombel

This was to help convince me that my favourite Loffet-played mazurkas can work on the Guais.
Realising that a more precise box is less forgiving, and actually harder to play: it exactly exhibits all your mistakes.
Yes, I know I need more metronome. ::)

Dots for four of the tunes are here

And you have introduced me to a composer I had never heard of, (Yes, I know I lead a sheltered life!), Maarten Decombel - I shall look out for him.

Very nice. I not sure why the Loffet learnt tunes wouldn't work on the Guais (who, if I ever have any spare cash would be top of my list to get a Dony sized box from). Is it keys? I don't have any qualms about playing stuff in the wrong keys, or if it is just whether it sounds too high for comfort, then what I'm hearing on your upload sounds perfectly within pitch comfort.
Well played and thanks for the new tunes.

DOTS!

A new reply to Julian, and anyone else wanting to learn the tunes.
Here are the dots for four of the mazurkas, written as for a DG box.  Hope it helps:

Thanks Arty and Pete

Arty, you can hear Maarten in the bands Snaarmaarvaar,  Goze, Mandolinman, Naragonia quartet.  All very wonderful! Snaarmaarvaar have a tunebook you can order.

Another beautiful mazurka written by Maarten Decombel is 1/11, which was recorded by him together with Frédéric Paris, Gilles Chabenat and Wim Claeys on the album, Live en Flandre. Since the title on the CD is just written as 1/11, I assume it is pronounced in English as 'One Eleventh' or in French as 'Une Onzième'.

I am a bit busy right now, but I can post the dots in a couple of days time, if anybody is interested. Having said that it is a mazurka, I am not sure whether it is. It is in 3/4 time, but they play the tune very slowly on the CD and it needs speeding up to be used for dancing. We play it as a mazurka, segued with Mazurka de Lanternaire, but Decombel's may not have intended it to be a mazurka.

I am not sure if i heard Maarten tell it once, or if i just made it up, but i thought it should be pronounced "first of november".
And for speed,...mazurka's over here can be VERY slow, so if even at that slow speed, its called very danceable here. :-)

'The First of November' seems more likely as a title than 'one eleventh', but it would be nice to know for sure.
