Ridee No 1

Was surprised that this wasn’t already in here. This is from a set of three ‘ridees’ (Breton dance form) titled ‘Fest Noz’ (late-night festival in Brittany) and found on Lunasa’s ‘Redwood’; it’s actually a 6/4, but I’ve notated in 3/2. It was originally written by Nicholas Quemenar and Yvon Lefebvre, with the band Skeduz. This is my first submission, so let me know if there are any mistakes; I’ll add the other two as I get a chance.

I love love love this ridée and Skeduz - problem here is that you can’t number tunes (which sucks for every kind of music apart from Irish)

cheers for posting, 🙂

Most people wouldn’t be surprised that this tune wasn’t on this site simply because it’s not Irish.

Not Irish?

Yeah, yeah; Germanic, Breton law, Irish. Got it.

Theory?

I guess I’m a little over my head:

Halfing the length of each 8-bar measure of a 6/4 makes it a 4-bar repeated tune in three-four, so in order to notate 6/4 I would double the default note length to 1/16 instead of 1/8? Am I just a little confused?

How rude!

Sorry, didn’t mean to be rude, ‘mehitabel23’. Thank you for the compliment. I haven’t had opportunity to listen to Skeduz, got it second hand. I do like a bit of diversity, though (unlike some), and no, I didn’t realize that you couldn’t number tunes.

Cheers!

Laridé à Six Temps ~ you do have another option here ~ 3/2

mrkelahan,
to give it a specific name you can rename it to i.e. "Laride de Skeduz" or Laride Numero Un" or something like that.
