Re: Capogiro

Wow! I love that one! It is interesting to see how a 5/8 can have a waltz feeling. I know that rhythm well from Castillian Tradituional Music but those tunes don’t have that waltz feeling.

Re: Capogiro

Thanks, Fernando. I’m so happy you liked it!

Capogiro, X:2

I hope you don’t mind me doing this setting Gian Marco. It is the same as yours but doing the anacrusis in both parts, I think that with this little change the ABC is closer to what you play in the video. I added an ending note to the tune as well.

I really love your tune, nice passing notes, I will give it a try with the chromatic harmonica.

Thanks a lot!!

Re: Capogiro

Thanks again!

Re: Capogiro

Beautiful tune! I’m going to teach this to my session mates at Mass MoCA in North Adams Massachusetts.

Re: Capogiro

Thank you very much Mark!

Re: Capogiro

A friend of mine wrote the lyrics for the tune (Capogiro = Dizziness):

Dizzy and Giddy and Giddy and Dizzy
Fuzzy and Muzzy and Muzzy and Fuzzy
Dizzy and Giddy and Giddy and Dizzy
Fuzzy and Muzzy and Muzzy and Fuzzy

More and more the whole world is twirling
Dazed and staggering can’t but dancing
Giddy Dancer or Dizzy Hoofer
Madly spinning around and round
