Here it is in Bm for D/G boxes. Chords are only a suggestion and would need changing for an 8 bass box.

... Originally in Am the PDF music attached also has the tune set in Em which sits well on a G/C box.
Pete, I think you mean 'sits well on a D/G box'. It's the Am version which fits best on a G/C box.

This tune was recorded by Huw and Tony Williams on their 'Rosemary's Sister' album and on there it was titled "Alawon Fy Ngwlad" but they were unsure of the provenance. I won't bore you with the details but it appeared on the front cover of the first volume of a 19thC music book of that name but didn't manage to appear inside the book! Referred to as "Hobed o Hilion" on several YouTube renditions the music played doesn't match either of the two tunes so named within the books wwhich is rather odd!


I'll ask Huw at the next band gig and see if he can shed any further light on this....

Cheers,
Guy

Another good tune from Playford, played on a box belonging to a member of Boggart's Breakfast, An Italian Rant.
If you prefer chords above the music instead of below simply delete the three lines beginning with V: but don't leave any blank lines in the file or it won't work

Here's a great tune and it's topical too, Midvintermarschen. Written in the original 2/4 it looks a little daunting, transposed to 4/4 (naughty, naughty!) it's looks simpler and sounds the same through an abc midi player so take your pick!

X:1
T:Italian Rant, An

V:1 gchord=down

Simple question (with a simple answer, I hope): If I do delete the V: lines, the tune plays back with
a pianner as the lead instrument. How do I get it to continue to play with flute as the lead instrument?
I never have quite got my head around the use of V:...

Deleting the three V: lines shouldn't make any difference to the midi voicing (leave no blank lines). My playback sometimes starts with the piano instead of flute, without pressing stop or pause click on rewind << to send it back to the top of the tune, that usually sorts it out.

Correct! Thank you! In fact, I can't reproduce the problem now - certainly it wasn't due to blank lines.
My running copy of EasyABC must have got its knickers in a temporary twist.

Sorry Pete, don't know how I didn't see this when picking this month's selection. In next month's list, a little belatedly.

Harry Kitchener's Jig written by Paul Sartin and featured on Death and Other Animals by Faustus. May Reel was a grand tune to play and I reckon this would be too. I've not learnt it - I'm too busy slogging my way through Origin of the World for March 19 at the mo!

Fighting Temeraire by Sandy Shallis. Sandy was one of the most inspiring players on Melnet when I first came on here. I'll be surprised if this hasn't been suggested before but I don't remember it being in a poll.

Great hymn there, Peadar, and I've played it before. I could even have a go at recording that one myself.

Yes a great hymn - traditional Welsh tune and well worth having a go at recording. Whether your preferred version is all out on a 4 stop,  or sing along in Welsh (or English).

After our Wensleydale experience, what about any tune learnt on any workshop (at any event)? That might of course bar those who have never attended any events, and I'd hate to do that. So it could be widened to any tune that they've been 'taught' in any interpretation of that word. Maybe along with the story of who taught it to them.
