Appelbo Ganglat

A Swedish tune that was played at a session that I attended yesterday evening at a pub in Redcliffe, Bristol. England.

A "walking tune" from Äppelbo in Dalarna. One of the most well known gånglåt ditties from the area - second only to Gärdebylåten, perhaps. You can even find the notes on the Äppelbo website:

http://www.appelbo.net/

The tune is from the playing of Ärtbergs-Kalle (1826–1917) from Ärtberget, which lies south of Äppelbo.

Thanks for the email ‘heads up’ Mix, always welcomed and appreciated. And, yes, as Weejie comments, it is one we played and ‘walked’ to, including for the May festivities. And as Weejie also said, up there with the likes of Gärdebylåten. But, no doubt you know, I don’t tire of a good tune and still enjoy the likes of "Soldier’s Joy"… ;-) But, I might have another transcription to add later, just for comparison’s sake, if it has enough quirks to add interest. :-D

Here is a second voice from a well known transcription in three voices, from the book "12 Låtar II", by Matts Arnberg, published by Gehrmans Musikförlag:

Funny that, I was just about to add a second fiddle part. I’ll have to see if it is significantly different or not. :-D

Here’s hoping in my semi-conscious state I got that right. :-/ If not, when I awake tomorrow and find a mistake, I’ll be adding another Oops! I’ll try to remember to put something together for D-limited instruments as well…

Just those first chords in the second strain use the bottom G:- [G,DB]B [G,DB]AG
You must have the Gehrmans transcription.

Of course - [G,DB]A/G/

These parts were from an arrangement by Sven Bohm (1914-2000), who was long time leader of Malungs Spelmanslag. Malung is just up the road from Äppelbo.

Oops! 8-)

Thanks Weejie ~ missed commas… It may have also been with me simultaneously working on the D-limited take… Here is is corrected ~
