From "Murru" by Sturla Eide. Most session-friendly tune in the collection. Great fiddle player from Norway.

Re: Tvihuga

Thanks to Mix for some simplification and advice on how to fit the tune into the Session format (9:8) as mentioned on several discussions

Class tune thanks for reminding me of it.

Would probably have submitted it as 3/4 myself but can still read it ok.

C: ?

This is obviously a new composition, is Sturla Eide the composer? If so please credit it so…

X: 2 ~ 3/4

This transcription roughed down into 3/4 time. In my opinion, though a sweet enough and quite modern sounding melody, in a shlocky kind of melodramatic way, it doesn’t have the pulse and life in the melody of a decent mazurka, Norwegian or otherwise, though, to be fair, I’ll have to chase up a listen. But, it’s pleasant enough…

I believe it is an Eide composition. "Tvihuga" - double minded (of two minds), or, as Sturla Eide puts it in more suitable idiom, "mixed feelings".

YEE HA! & slap my chaps! :-D

It’s sweet - in a country western Nashville WALTZ sort of way. It ain’t no mazurka, nor is there anything 9/8 about it.

Yup! ~ “Tvihuga” & “Knall” ~ C: Sturla Eide

Nice playing & lovely tone ~ and that second composition of his, "Knall", is a kick, good fun…

I think his comp “Tvihuga” would make more sense and interest with the B-part having 1st & 2nd endings, 8 bars each, 16 bars total, instead of the clunky 12 bar length, 24 bars total…

Indeed, it’s a waltz. I should have actually listened to the clip instead of translating the title!

If I’m not mistaken, "Knall" (explosion?!) is played as a gallopp.

I’m glad of the translation, welcome, with thanks…

This transcription has since been edited after listening to available recordings, rather than as I’d originally offered it, as a direct change from the original 9/8 to 3/4…
