Here's mine:
1. The 'normal' tune
2. Variations as mentioned by Hugh earlier in the thread
3. A minor version
4. The 'normal' tune again

I saw your video via youtube before coming here, and as I was watching the tune through I was just thinking, oh I wonder what a minor version would be like! You sure did deliver!

Very nicely played!

I just turned it to into Gm using abc then transposed it to Em. Wasn't sure how it would come out but it seemed to work ok. Thank you for the nice comment Gena.

Funnily enough I've also played it in D major and its parallel key B minor a few days ago. I've also found the change to be very refreshing for this melody.

When listening to your version, Mcgrooger, my SO came over from the other room and asked whether or not that's the same Tune of the Month I've been playing. She commented very positively on your playing and the idea to mix this tune up by playing it in a minor key. So, well done, I'd say. ;-)

Here's my version this month. I had my violinist friend round last night, so we had a go at it together.

Slowed down (a lot), and played very much in the "vivant style" in D on a Castagnari Mory in D/G.

Cheers,

Clive

I had a go at the C & D but steered well clear of any key changing jiggery pokery - that's not the sort of thing that'd go down well round my way.
