Thanks for the comments, all.



A masterwork! Thunderous applause from this end! (Where's the applause emoticon??)

Canal en octobre
http://www.onmvoice.com/play.php?a=33169

This was recorded 'live' yesterday by me and Susi hence the background noise.

Clive, I hope you'll allow an impertinent question from a brand new member. I loved your playing of Une Autre Fois and Canal in October. I knew the second tune but not the first and I read a number of the comments on it. I think I'm right in saying that you say it's in parts of 7 bars. When I listen to your fab version (and DtN's), assuming the parts are AAB, I can only count 6 bars in the B part. When I've looked at the ABC that someone kindly posted and listen to Frederic P playing, I can definitely detect 7 in both parts. Feel free to tell me it's coz I've got cloth ears! ???

I think I've probably just misremembered it! When I count it through in my head I get 7 bars for the first A 6 bars for the second A and 7 bars for the B music, so somethings not right! I must listen to the original again!

I wasn't happy with the first version as I'd only just learned the tune about an hour before  :-[

Anyway - I have re-recorded the melodeon and cleaned the guitar bit up and added a bit of reverb. Shot a video too on the local canal which is about ten minuted stroll away from the house. The video is in 1080 HD if your broadband is fast enough.. ;)

It's still a slow version with full use of the bass side..I hope someone fancies a go at it at the slower speed.

cheers

Alan

A very restful interpretation, Alan, augmented by a lovely video. It has put me into a mellow mood, so I shall go and play some suitably gentle tunes, starting with Valse du Vent, even if it didn't win the Tune of the Month poll.

Baby ducks too Gary, and moorhens (the black ones)....well - they were there so I videoed 'em. Pity no narrowboats though....

Thanks for the lovely comments.. :|bl

Very nice rendering, Mr. Almo. I like the slow peaceful quality of it. I think you have captured the essence of this tune perfectly. Thanks!  ;D

Indeed - sometimes a new 'view ' on a tune completely changes it's feel and Alan has produced a fine example   See it's the  Huddersfield Narrow Canal bi-centenary this year - Nora Batey would have been reet proud, had she survived.

I tried to do this with my "La Roulante," a gentler touch, a slower (non-polka) pace, but I don't think it really worked ... I didn't have ducks.

Sorry - I first read that as 'Nora Batty' - I had a 'Last of The Summer Wine' moment

I can play this really well on my fiddle, it's a very fiddle-friendly tune, quite simple. Just drifting through this thread this morning (either that or get into the ironing........you know which one is going to win.) and I thought - have a go on melodeon...I watched the first one by the French guy with all the buttons and great facial expressions and wondered if my DG would play it  ( my current concern on another thread) and found the notes by crossing the rows. Then listen to some more postings and found I was actually playing the same notes as most people so phew , sigh of relief. Haven't got to grips with the basses yet - in fact making a complete hash of them. But I do think I will soon be playing this ...after a fashion. If I can manage to figure out how to upload it I will.Thanks to everyone who posts these tunes, what a brill facility!

Thanks Martin,
Thanks for the comment.

Just as a quick story.
There are two canals here within about ten minutes walk of each other - the Erewash Canal in the valley, and the disused Nottingham Canal which runs across a ridge. Because the canals were cut into the ground by navvies (navigators) one canal was always knows at the 'bottom cut' and the other as 'top cut'.

When I had a kitchen studio in Ilkeston, there was a DIY shop next door and the owner told me that when the canals were being dug - his shop used to be a 'doss house' where the navvies used to doss down and sleep.

I've heard some of the album and the music is fabulous. The live show's had glowing reviews too.

I'm only 9 months late with my effort for this TOTM. Here's Une Autre Fois which I first heard through this thread soon after I joined the forum, Ganivelle and Canal in October. Played on Saltarelle Pastourelle III.
