tune identification please
something really embarrassing has happened—i can no longer play one of the tunes that play the most! i have known it for several years, and it is one of my mainstays. for some reason, a few weeks ago, i was playing, and all of a sudden i cannot figure out the second phrase of the B part, but the rest of the tune is intact.
it’s a reel in D, and here’s how it goes:
A part (single)
D2DF d2ag | f2ef dBBd | BAFA ABde | edef dBAF|
D2DF d2ag | f2ef dBBd | BAFA ABde |edef d3 A|
B part (single)
d2fd adfd | d2fd BAFA | d2……………………..
d2fd adfd | d2fd BAFA | d2 cA BAFD | FAde fdAF|
i would be really appreciative if someone could fill in the missing 2 measures. my version might be a bit different than everyone else’s, but that’s ok… i just can’t figure out the turning of the tune. like i said… really embarrassing, cuz i must have played this tune at least 5 times a week every for the last several years. i think it happened cuz i’ve been working at different keys and transposition and all that, and something just got booted out of my brain. funny thing is that i learned this one in several keys, and i get lost in the same part in every key.
i think what my have happened is that in becoming more reliant on how the tune SOUNDS and less on muscle memory, my muscle memory for the tune has faded, and the sound of the tune in my head wasn’t strong enough. oops.
