I am re-submitting the ABC for 'FARAWAY, my nomination for TOTM.november

New one on me but at first glance/hum I like it.
And a zillion times preferable to bloody DR.
But aren't these in Am and Bm respectively?

Definitely in Bm as far as I'm concerned.

Some of us around here play what to my mind is a definite improvement on what seems to be the composer's version - saving the cascading ending for the second time through the B part. It comes as a nice surprise that way, delayed gratification. Like this:

X:1
T:Faraway
C:Pete Jung
S:Montreal variant
M:3/4
L:1/8
K:Bm
z4FA|:B2BA Bd|cAF2FA|B2BA Be|c3 cdc|
B2GA Bd|cAF2 de|1fe dc BA|B2BA FA:|2fe dc BA|
B2Bc de|:f2fe fa|ec Ac de|f2fe fa|
[1e4 de|f2fe fa|ec A2 Bc|d2 c2 BA!B2 Bc de :|

If everything from last month that got at least 2 votes is included in the november poll, this could go on for a while - they all got at least 2 votes. ???


It's hard to hear it resolving on anything other than Bm in the final bar, but it could easily open with G and D chords.
So nicely ambiguous and flexible - plus a nice and simple tune too. All the ingredients of a good totm.
Shame we'll get Donkey Riding.


Glad you like it. We don't have to have Donkey riding.

There's so many nominations I'm having to change things around a bit, so no, not all of last months nominations make it into November's poll (though they do remain on the shortlist). In fact, because all the other poll tunes got 'beaten' by Princess Royal last month, I think it's fair to assume they would probably also lose if put head-to-head against it again this month, so the only tune from last month that makes it through to this month's poll is Princess Royal. Does that make sense?

Shame we'll get Donkey Riding.

Not in this month's poll. Next month, eh?

Cheers,

Clive

The ABC doesn't work, but I've tried the one in my black book (in Gmin) on my clarinet, nice tune. Princess Royal is one of my favourite tunes, but I haven't heard that one!

Even with just under a week to go I think this is going to be close one! Is the forum going to be split down the middle? Which one to start practicing? Will it be the Moulins Mazurka or the Majestic Morris? Is there going to be a dark horse coming up on the outside - no not a Donkey Riding (non starter).

Tune in next week.............!!!

No hanging chads please, vote tactically if you have to. We could have an interesting tune after all.

It appears the vote is close between two tunes!

Perhaps when it is this close, people who have voted for a losing tune can remove their vote and vote on the last day of the month and vote for one of the two contenders? Like a two stage voting process sans hanging chads.

It means "The Unknown of Limoise". Emmanuelle Pariselle told me that it was written to commemorate an incident when a cemetery in Limoise was being moved to a new site to make way for a new development. Somehow, the identities of the skeletons got mixed up during the process and nobody knows who some of them were any more. This must have been a problem when deciding which skeleton to bury beneath each headstone!  :|bl
