T: Mrs. Hamilton Of Pencaitland
R: reel
Why does anything in 4/4 on thesession.org automatically get labelled a "reel"?
Yes - I've noticed that too! Also, I always view the accuracy of anything I find there with suspicion; frequently the ABC coding is (not to put too fine a point on it) horrible.  :o

Mrs Hamilton of Pencaitland is indeed a lovely slow air. I've tidied up the ABC considerably...

What about a Theme of the Month in which we choose one tune and push ourselves to try new ways to dress it up, i.e. using countermelodies, different harmonies, alternate voicing of chords, clever bass lines, accompaniment styles, etc.? Of course, that already happens in the Tune of the Month, but maybe if we treated it as a Theme, we could stretch ourselves and make a point of exploring all of the possibilities.

A Celtic Nations theme that encompasses England, Cornwall, Wales, Scotland, Isle of Man, Ireland, Brittany and Galicia, to enjoy the both the similarities and the contrasts. Make a case for extending the title of Celtic Nation to Nova Scotia, Asturias, Cantabria, etc.

Idea for a future theme: tunes you want to share with people (e.g. because you think they're great tunes that not enough people know about, or just because you're proud you've actually managed to learn them... or even because you want to get constructive feedback on your performance of a tune as you don't think it sounds quite right...)

Except that England isn't a Celtic nation; it's very definitely Germanic/Scandinavian.

From what I understand, recent DNA testing has revealed that most English people have more Celtic blood in them than anything else. The successive Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian and Norman invasions merely superimposed a relatively small ruling elite onto a predominantly Celtic population.

Depends whether you regard "English" as being about deoxyribonucleic acid, or culture  … or about a nice meal ticket for life in the case of one burgeoning politician?

Incidentally DNA (specifically Y chromosome) testing has revealed that the wives of oen particular surname have historically had by far the most faithful wives in the nation. I'll let you guess which. It isn't "farage"  :|glug

Would like to nominate a couple of tunes: Mrs Savage's Whim (as performed by Boldwood here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrn377kyz44) and Charlotte by Naragonia. (The first is in Bm and seems to sit quite well on a D/G; no idea about the second one but it doesn't sound too tricky.) Both very sweet tunes.

I would like to suggest, any tune composed by Stephan Delicq for Theme of the Month. Most are quite beautiful and many would fit on a D/G I think.

Can't find a youtube for Naragonia's Charlotte - nice tune though, I agree - anyone found a demo of it being played?

My goodness is MySpace still going ? :-) Do you know what type of dance they use this for? I hear it as a slow jig - is it a rondeau? Or a somewhat advanced waltz?

Have avoided artist based themes so far - tempting though this one is, but we did do Bob Cann as I recall so maybe, now that he's passed. I wouldn't call his music easy though - it will all fit on a 2row 8bass, but the man was a genius with it and could and did do things on it I can only dream of...
