It's good to see your interest in the aussie Galopede tune, which is just part of the 'assumed knowledge' among bush band musos (who would mostly play it in D). You can hear a few versions on Spotify: one by "Warren Fahey's Australian Bush Orchestra" and another by Wongawilli. For my own interest, I'll try to track down the name of the musician it was first collected from. Thanks to Anahata for transcribing the tune from my playing. It appears in a couple of music books I have and a composite version goes like this:

X:1
T:Galopede
C:Traditional Australian
K:D
M:2/4
L:1/8
||A|FA/2A/2  Ad|fe d2|BA Bd|e>f e2|
FA/2A/2 Ad|fe d2|BA Bc|d2 d:||
e|f2 e2|dA/2A/2 AA|g2 f2|eA/2A/2 BA|
f2 e2|dA/2A/2 AA|BA Bc|d2 d:||

Incidentally, the instructions for the bush dance we call the Galopede are:
Longways sets for 6 to 8 couples.
Lines advance & retire. Lines advance and all cross over, passing by the left shoulder and finishing in opposite line facing in.  (8 bars)
Lines advance & retire. Lines advance and all cross over, passing by the right shoulder to finish in original place.  (8 bars)
All spin your partners using short arm spin. (8 bars)
Top couple spin down the centre of the set and finish at bottom, others move up one place. (8 bars)

Here's a quick rendition on my "Outdoor Box", a Black Hohner Erica -

Like it  (:)

Interesting bass line with varied chords, and some nice twiddly bits in the right hand too!

As is the English version over here.

I guess I should have waited for you to post a more definitive version, though the differences seem quite minor.

Got to love the mittens as well!! Thanks for posting! (:)
Thanks Les - the gloves are possum fur!  Sounds a bit horrible to make them out of a small, furry creature but possums are a big pest here - and they are very warm...

I don't often have a go at tune of the month because the tunes are too difficult for a complete beginner like me. Not this one, though, thank goodness, although you will hear several wrong notes - apologies for them.
It has renewed my enthusiasm for playing the melodeon. Thank you Smiley for introducing me to the tune, which is now a complete maggot - I wake up hearing it.

I really enjoyed this, Mary - it inspired me to print Anahata's music to have a go at (and thanks to Smiley too (:)).  And it was great getting to the end and seeing your smile - I'm glad you don't do 'headless' recordings!

An 'Aussie' Galopede - what a great one row tune. Thanks to the Melnet team on both sides of the world for delivering it and ably demonstrating it. Straight on to the Must Learn list  (:)

Here's my stab at Galopede, played in 'A' on a Beltuna Sara lll in A/D.  Usual apologies for raspy sound quality and lack of bass end.

OK.... finally got my act together and recorded this.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80IHDBwzC_0

It's one of those tunes I've never actively learnt, but somehow absorbed over the years and only played it after someone else has started it up. This month means I have to learn it and get it sorted, which is a good thing.

I've also for the first time experimented using a new sound recording device to try and get less boomy sound than my webcam provides. Recorded the webcam and sound device then spliced using Live Movie Maker.
This has been a learning curve on all fronts!
cheers

The same version on the same Lilliput, but with sound effects - as if I was playing it in York Minster! :-)

An eleventh hour contribution!  While this is another tune that sounds good in minor modes I've nevertheless played it in D Major since I wanted to try using my inexperienced left hand.  Attempting a Minor accompaniment using traditional B/C basses and chords on my unmodified Chinese BlackDot is a bridge too far for me at the moment.  Even as it is I'm not sure my left hand has accomplished much other than interfering with my right!

End of the month folks, time for a new tune!

Late contributions as ever always welcome - just stick them on the end here.

Not much galloping here, but I tried to concentrate on a steady rhythm instead and 2 1/2 years late!

I must say, the Tune of the Month Index, put together by Lester I believe, is a fantastic resource for people learning, like me. Thanks Lester!

Passages, which require quick bellows reversals are causing me a few problems. The front of the treble side of the melodeon wobbles around alarmingly and causes me to make mistakes sometimes. Is there a way I can stop this happening? Help would be gratefully received!
