"Långdans Från Sollerön" ~ from several discussion to this!

Sorry Kenny and slainte ~ it’s Swedish! However, I and others have actually played this in a session that was primarily Irish…

Toward the end, as it went ‘a little’ off topic:

"Though, there are some harmonic minor tunes scattered on site here… Alright everybody, here comes Steve, harmonic minor tunes from here on out…" 😉

"Långdans Från Sollerön" ~ another 2nd part

I’m not sure where I found this second part, somewhere online I suspect, possibly from Richard Robinson’s massive collection of ABCs or John Chambers’ Tunefinder? 😏 ~

"36. This is an extremely old tune. Play it ‘very’ slowly, and if the phrasing never exactly makes sense, at least you’ll get used to it. I like this one a lot" ~ Ben Paley

Nice tune, thanks for posting it

Re: Long-dance From Solleron

Långdans means "line dance" in Swedish, not "long dance".

Långdans Från Sollerön

This is a further version of a tune that is on the site, this one with an introductory phrase, and a second line by Alm-Nils Ersson. (The 3rd line is mine, for what it’s worth, as are the chords; take them or leave them). Tempo marking in the collection where I found it: crotchet =120. And it’s not really a waltz despite being in 3/4 time, but that’s the nearest category on offer here.

I know it’s not Irish, but the site seems to tolerate some of this Swedish stuff - and this has been known to go down well in a session, being a jolly nice tune and fairly easy to pick up. (Even easier if you put it in Am).

Re: Long-dance From Solleron

Hmmm, but not ‘line-dance’ in a cowboy-boots-and-Stetson-hat sort of way. I wouldn’t put it in a set with, say, ‘Achey Breaky Heart’.

(See also: ‘Långdans från Sollerön’: another setting, but with Swedish vowels in the title: sorry, I didn’t spot how to add it on this page before I’d posted it).

"Långdans Från Sollerön"

Back to how it was ‘originally’ submitted, before someone else edited it and changed the title… 😏 However, in some entries, online and in print, some folk do write it up as ‘long’ dance, ‘long’ dances, in a ‘line’ sort of way. Sometimes translating takes liberties, not always wrongly, or at least not completely off course…
