September 2018

Two great new tunes for September: The Sportsman’s Hornpipe and Four Up. The Hornpipe needs to be played with a broken rhythm (pairs of quavers played nearly as a dotted quaver plus a semiquaver) rather than straight.
The melodies are simple but the melodeonistas who are playing melody and chords will find themselves switching rows to get the chords that I’ve suggested – excellent practice!

The dots for the new tunes are here: Four Up and Sportsman’s Hornpipe.

Recordings of the new tunes are here: Four Up and Sportsman’s Hornpipe (although I feel that Sportsman should be played with a stronger Hornpipe broken rhythm).

The full PDF score for September is here: Almeley SS – September 2018(this includes everything to date, including the new tunes).
