### "Muiñeira De Chantada"

This has been transposed from a take in C to D. It has also been ‘adjusted’ so that the couple of notes that could drop below D were replace with something that didn’t… If you wanted to dip lower, here are those two instances ~

B-part, bar 3 ~ | A2 G E2 C | ~

C-part, lead-in ~ |: D2 A, | ~

All of this was inspired by this recent thread ~

AND ~ this lovely addition of mayhem to that, courtesy of lovely Ramiro, my sort of people ~ mad!!! ~ 😎

The ‘Muiñeira de Chantada’ is the Galician equivalent to ‘The Kesh’

Every Galician musician can play it, and every Galician people can hum it.

### Discussion: What One Octave Tunes in D exist?

# Posted on September 19th 2007 by Sarah the Flute

https://thesession.org/discussions/15202

Sorry, I forgot to add this other discussion that gave reason for this submission… This even took precedence over other promises, a cookie box full of Scotch goodies, a beavy of Irish beauties, and a couple of Breton En Dros… Life works in mysterious ways… 😉

That’s the why of the D transcription…in case you wondered…

### "Muiñeira A Cabaleira" ~ correcting a link above

"Cristina Pato’s Muiñeira #2" has a name ~ "Muiñeira A Cabaleira"

"This muiñeira is called "A cabaleira" and it was composed by Mr. Fariña."

### The version we play…

ceolachan,

"And it may be a sin, but I love changing gears, modes,…"

Yes, I can see it 🙂

The version we play has first part minor, second and third major.

My experience with musical notation is limited, I’m not sure if this is formally correct.

Yes, I think we’re on the same wave. I’ll be back with a minor clean up of your ABCs, and after giving them a try and comparing… 😉

### Correction ~ igracias! ~ 😉

### "Muiñeira De Chantada" ~ a la Ramiro

This is ‘normalized’, which allows us to get rid of the 1st and 2nd endings, but there’s nothing stopping us from starting on say a long A3, just as an introduction ~ also, I like to drop down from the lead-ins in order that similar phrases are in line with each other.

Also, those ties, that is the usual way of showing a long note while preserving the character of the given time signature, so things throughout are shown in division to be bars of two beats, even though notes cross the beat within. For an example, where you’ve written |B2A2dA| above, the accepted way of notating that, dots or ABCs, would be as given below, or | c2 B- BFD | ~ I prefer a bit more space in transcriptions and tend to have my ABCs mirror how things go with the dots. None of the software cares whether or not you put space either side of a bar line, but I feel it makes the ABCs easier to read, less crammed all together.

Anyway, here goes ~ your transcription ~

I have heard this thing done all in Major, but I love to tease by moving in and out of major and minor on that relevant part. I did notice our order is different, but that may just be me liking to finish with the tease, or going minor? What’s the usual order, or can it vary?

### Correction ~ apologies to Ramiro ~ his A-part, the last bar ~

I forgot to make that adjust ment from ~ | D3- D2 A :|

to merely ~ | D3- :| ( ~ in recovery from being very ill 😏 )

Your tips on notation are much appreciated, thank you!

I’ve always heard it played min-maj-maj, always in that order.

Here is another clip by Susana Seivane:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSRc1Sw73AU

Susana is a well known piper from the Seivane family of pipe makers.

It would be great if in one trip to Ireland I hear a local fiddler playing this muiñeira!

It’s a lovely tune. Thanks for your inspiration and contstructive input Ramiro… While I have had the pleasure of sharing the music with musicians from there, we have not yet had the pleasure of visiting Galiza (sp?)… We’ve been all over the North of Spain, loving mountains as we do, streams and rivers and wild areas, but we haven’t made it further ~ someday…

### MIDI playback

When I download the ABCs, I put them into Tabledit and listen to the MIDI (here at work… shhhh). Everytime ceolachan does his usual 50 variations in the commments here, it seriously takes 10 minutes to listen to all the different versions. It’s good though, gives me a good idea of the tune and it’s potential. Anyways, thans for posting this tune Ramiro, I love this one. And yes, thanks to you too "c", for the varations. Good stuff.

Cheers,

Marty

### Woops

I mean "thanks" of course, for posting this tune.

### Wait a minute!

Wait a MINUTE!!!! I did it again! Damn it! Thank YOU ceolachan, for posting this tune. Sorry about that (again).

feck!

### Galician is muiñeira

"Galician Muiñeira"

Submitted on March 18th 2007 by gaitazampogna_32.

https://thesession.org/tunes/6961

In D by Carlos Núñez and The Chieftains: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJ1ynTMUj0c The first tune is an alborada, the second one is this muiñeira.

In C by Susana Seivane (the previous link does not longer work): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0WNNRdC0UM

### For the curious

A score from a Galician website

http://centros.edu.xunta.es/iescelanova/musica_galega/images/part_chantada.gif

I don’t mind the 1st part

I like the 2d one

the third one’s a bit cheesy

### Muiñeira De Chantada, X:10

This is a transcription of the Carlos Nunez with The Chieftains video in Dm/D that was submitted above long ago. Love this tune. There’s another video with Carlos Nunez playing this in Cm/C. The tune in every version I’ve ever heard begins in the minor then proceeds to the major. Can’t figure out why there are transcriptions here entirely in the major keys.

This is such a happy tune and everyone, audience and performers alike, look as if they are having the best time of their lives. It’s fun and easy in Dm/D on the fiddle too.
