"La Piquée Double" ~ a couple dance and the last of my Breton contributions for a spell

This is another for Sarah the flute that meets her request of one octave tunes between D and d, in this case in G…

Discussion: What One Octave Tunes in D exist? (D to d in this case)

I did say there were a slew, and jokingly said 624, then later ‘infinite’. I’ve been finding so many I’m going cross-eyed, and that’s just looking at Breton tunes. There’s all the French ones too, and it doesn’t end there. I have had similarly limited instruments, which in part accounts for my interest in such tunes, but I’d have had that interest even without those influences. Range limited pieces can be great for teaching and learning. They are a bit like the haiku of music, and I’m fond of both the poetry and the music. As I’ve said before, I’m not going to flood the site with what’s possible, but I felt a few in answer to Sarah’s request would be OK…

Well, I do have some more lovely En Dros and Hanter Dros and ~ no, I said I’d desist for a spell. I have some that are incredibly short, so I might throw in one more before returning to these lovely isles… 😉

I’ve also a transcription of this in the Key of C Major, and the key of D is another fun possibility, taking it down if you like the rumble, as I do…

"La Piquée Double" ~ the possibilities are endless

I’d forgotten how much fun this tune and dance was. I wish I remembered enough to give you the breakdown of the dance. If I find notes I’ll add them here, or if my memory starts suddenly behaving. I do remember we had fun with this one. There are a slew of basic rhythmic fun you can have with it. In its joyous simplicity there are endless possibilities. Here are some of the basic rhythmic groups and examples. N = any note/pitch ~

N3 ~ N2 N ~ NNN ~ N>NN ~ N/N/NN ~ NN/N/N ~ NNN/N/ ~ etc…

& getting carried away a bit ~
