The Duple Triple

This is one of mine. It’s written in A melodic minor so all the Gs are #. There are tunes out there written in this scale but I can’t think of any off the top of my head. If anyone can think of any, please post the names here - I’d like to look them up.

AKA Double Treble?

I suppose so 🙂 It’s from "duplet/triplet", or "duple/triple time"

Would very like to play this tune with my band!

Hi Noxious Blanket!

My name is Francois Matte, flute player of the Quebec (Canada) based band Rosheen. (

I’m working on a set of jigs at the moment that would appear on our next album and would be very thrilled to include this tune of yours (Duple Triple). Its a wonderfull tune that sounds very different than what wh are used ear!

Do you think it would be possible to include this tune of yours in our set?


Sure. See e-mail…
