French Canadian tune id

Hi all,

I learned a French Canadian reel a while ago but forgot the 2nd part.

The 1st part goes like this:

DGBGc2DD | DGBGEEFE | DGBGCGBG | AcFGABG

where the first F is nat, the second is sharp.

So: does any one know the 2nd part, and what ‘s the name of the tune (it was handed over to me as ‘le Saut du Lapin’ and I found a tune on the web by that name, but that was not the one I’m looking for).

No luck with the Reverend’s ABC tune search as well.

DISCLAIMER:
No, I don’t have a recording of it !

Re: French Canadian tune id

That was only the half of the 1st part; it’s simply repeated and then ends on G4 instead of GABG.

Re: French Canadian tune id

Henk, that’s Reel du Lievre, or Reel of the Hare (aka Rabbit Reel). Here’s a transcription I found online:

X: 752
T: Reel du lièvre
Z: Martin Coudroy
N: Accentuer le contre-temps (les 7 poussés)
L: 1/8
M: 4/4
K: G
BG|DGBG cGBG|DGBG E2 =FE|DGBG cGBG|DFAF G2 BG|
DGBG cGBG|DGBG E2 =FE|DGBd cBcB|1 AFDF G2 BG:| 2 AFDF G4||

Re: French Canadian tune id

I’ll bet you that your average Nord Americaner hasn’t a clue what a hare is… They probably think it’s a toupé, a ‘hare piece’… 😎

Re: French Canadian tune id

Actually, c, both snowshoe hare and jackrabbits are true hares and quite common throughout the western US. Some stretches of highway out here are paved with hare pieces….

You, well, you’re an exception Will… I like the correlation with road pizza…

Re: French Canadian tune id

And what about the Jackalopes?

Re: French Canadian tune id

In this case, I’m glad to say, with all the claims made by Texans over there ~ Euro-Hares are bigger!!!

Re: French Canadian tune id

~ and tastier… There’s nothing much that can beat a good hare pie… 😀

Re: French Canadian tune id

Who’s hare brained idea was it to stir this up anyway?

Re: French Canadian tune id

Stop rabbiting on off-topic, please, and lets resume session.org business as usual, stewing over annoying drummers, learning off dots, etc. Otherwise this will warren Jeremy deleting the thread.





I really should stop. 🙂

Re: French Canadian tune id

Will, any idea what ‘Accentuer le contre-temps (les 7 poussés)’ means? Something like accents on the off beat, 7th note of each bar is up bow?

Re: French Canadian tune id

Yes, Henk, accent the off beat—the 7th note of each bar. That’s a French-Canadian fiddle thing.
