Here's my straight-ahead version of this month's tune. It's played on my Hohner Pressed Wood D/G.

Well here it is...Galopede
http://soundcloud.com/ladydetemps/totm-june-galopede
I left out the basses because they sounded too....elephant like against the tune. Me playing a few other instruments 'guest' on this. Apologies for the short fiddle section.

Played slowly and deliberately but without any hint of 'squareness', quite the opposite in fact, packed with well practised musical phrasing. You are learning musical etiquette very well!

Thank you so much Pete and Frank for the positive comments.  :|bl I've not listened to anyone else's version yet as I like to try and record something without being unintentionally influenced by how others have approached a TOTM.

This is great. Confident, punchy but with tons of light and shade on one of the best sounding boxes on melnet.   (:)

noodling in the front room as darkness fell, straight to tape as usual

Nice - enjoyed hearing two different versions of the speed - had someone tell me recently it HAD to be played lightning fast...but I beg to differ.

My initial confidence has faded - it's a long tune!

Here's my (very basic) playthrough; nothing to excite the more experienced amongst you but at this stage I'm still happy just to get the whole way through a tune without too many mistakes  :||:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThHEtC4iYrE

....Bit of a shambles but I'd had a fair few stabs at recording it and this was the best of a bad basket  :(
(so please ignore the bodged run followed by some pretty desperate airbutton work!)

Heigh Ho, its only a hobby!

Tom - this is SUPERB!!  Gently and skilfully played!  I love the way you've kept it gentle, sort of drawing the listener into the tune. (Yes, I'm being serious).  Much more subtle than my own 'in your face' style!

Here's my version of this; nothing much different to the many excellent versions we've had so far, but this one's in on the Bb/Eb preciosa so comes out in Eb.

Beautifully played and the Hohner sounds gorgeous. Eb is a lovely mellow key.

I really like what you do with this tune - all its subtle changes and variations. At the evening concert of 'Melodeons and More' in Mendlesham back in March, Issy Emeny was performing and she mentioned that while she loved Irish and Scottish music (she didn't mention Welsh) they were 'full up with notes' and what she liked best about English tunes was that they gave one the space to explore all sorts of possibilities of variations. You have certainly demonstrated this to perfection with this performance. Well done Clive and thank you!  :|glug

Here's my version...

I'll bet I'm not the only one who starts the month by wondering, "What do you suppose Clive will do with that tune?" My patience was rewarded once again with a nifty treatment, inventive but not forced. I really like it.

Just a quick note to say thanks to everyone for the kind comments - this atmosphere of encouragement is Melnet's greatest strength!

I've been off morrising this weekend (and anyone who knows Victory or Hartley morris will tell you it's singing sessions all the way - and you'd have gone seriously wrong if you didn't want to just sit and enjoy  :|glug :D) but i still managed to get the box out a bit during the day.  :||:

I was telling young Mattsmee (who also gives me a lot of encouragement and tips) that i did record, well, plenty of takes of galopede - i even got one with no errors in - but it just seemed so lifeless. In the end i opted to put up the one that felt like music rather than just a technical exercise.

I've found every version up so far this month both enjoyable and inspiring. More Please!!

PS. Clive, you're very very good

Hi folks.  Here's mine, at last!  To pick up recent references I discarded the no-mistakes versions in favour of this one with some mistakes...!  It took me a bit longer than learning one from scratch because having had a session with Brian (thanks Steve) and having viewed other videos, notably Mcgrooger, who made things flow when I certainly didn't, I decided to try to build in more cross-rowing and relearn some sections in order to get a better flow.  Add to that I am now trying to develop a better playing position, so as you can imagine it was fiddly..!!
