I started playing this today, at first I thought it came from Kornog because it sounded Breton, then I realized it came from Grada, I am pretty sure it is a Ridee.
I’m pretty sure Jean Michel Veillon plays this on another recording; might be with Pennou Skoulm. I’ll check.
that first part should be in 6/4 I put it in the ABCs originally no reason why it isn’t now.
Laridé à Six Temps / Ridée à 6 Temps
There will be words for this, but alas I have not yet been able to find them. These would also give it a "title". 6/4 it is, and the B-part repeated carries that basic dance definition…but 3/2 will do it too. In some old transcriptions I have from France they were actually written out in 4/4 with the phrasing crossing the bar line, for example, using this notation:
|: A2 c>A G>A B>d | c2 B2 A>A c>A | G>A B>d c2 B2 :|
3 measure that are actually two, wild eh, and without naming the infamous Breton musician who gave it to me this way… Our secret is kept…
Did you happen to read my comment before this one? The ABC’s if converted will show the A part in 6/4, try it.
Yes, I had…
This is such an old thread but I’m trying to find out about this tune and cheekily want to ask Ceolachan to look at their CD notes… (if they have them…). I’ve been trying to see if I can find the song via trawling through Pennou Skoulm albums online but haven’t sussed it yet. Thanks in advance!
Can’t remember hearing this one on Pennou Skoulm, but it’s the sort of thing they’d record.
