Tune of the Month for October 2019: Leyas Vaggvisa
« on: September 30, 2019, 10:32:02 PM »

Hi all! Looks like I've got a new tune to learn!

Leyas Vaggvisa - Lars Karlsson (fine swedish accordionist) wrote this lovely piece. Thank you to Janneke for suggesting (and playing) it: https://youtu.be/46FjFUrhL3Q ... and for superimposing the sheet music over the video :-)

Here's the composer playing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8TBDrqJve8

Off to learn it myself...

Enjoy!

Clive

Not quite sure what to make of this one. One and an out-take, twice through each.

I am working on Leyas Vaggvisa in D, on a DG.

Any suggestions about what to do about the chord to put over the C# in bar 11 (=B in the original key of C).
On a standard GC, the tune works on the inside row key of C. The chord played is E major.

If I played it on the inside row of a DG, the equivalent chord would be the B major. But, the tune is definitely squeaky, pitched  in the key of G.

So, on my DG, playing on the outside row, I need to match the C# with F# major, to play the harmony Lars' band uses. Trouble is, C# is only available on the pull. My F# chord is only available on the push (it's also F#m, but that's another issue).
The notes of F# major are F#, A# (aka Bb) and D# (aka Eb). I haven't got a D# available, in the right direction, to make a right hand chord.

Can anyone think of a way of faking it, or shall I abandon the idea?

I have a 12 bass  Saltarelle with an F#minor/F major combination, in the wrong directions to help  :(

I suppose I could play a  right hand two note combination with just F# and A#, without the 5th. I'm not sure I could reach, though

I've run through it a few times now; it seems to sit more easily on the inside row, than the outside. Still working on it though; I'm not fully inspired yet, and my video is someway off.

I've been experimenting with playing it in C on a C/F Club.
The E major chord (when playing in C) is available as a simple RH triad, though I'm undecided as to how to work that into the flow of the tune and harmony without too much of a discontinuity in texture. (mainly because of the missing bass note.)

Incidentally, in several other places, I've found the gleichton useful.

This time with 100% extra Fred for free. (Yay! :||: :||:) https://youtu.be/28K-KkhlcjM

As a side note, the fun in this month was much more to do with working with Fred than with the tune itself.

I'm playing all the wrong notes but not necessarily in the wrong order.

I didn't see that one coming. Brilliant! Love the way you've shaken the tune awake.  Love it.

I should be writing a school report, but instead...

Here's my take on this. I've flattened it into 4/4 and played it like a Nordic bridal march, on the Streb with church organ samples :-)

I may have overdone things a bit.

It's played in Bb/Eb on the inside (middle) row.
