Always liked this tune; this month’s melodeon.net theme of ‘tunes with names that start with J’ gives me the perfect excuse. Written by Stephane Delicq, of course, and I learned this of Massimo Craveri’s fantastic video whose videos are about as perfect a demo of the tune as we could possibly hope for. Inaccuracies are mine, and not his. Haven’t spent long learning this tune yet (30 mins!) so I’m not fluent yet, but here’s where I’ve got to so far.
Played on a Van der Aa Compact III in G/C, but this will fit on a standard 2 row 8 bass like pretty much all of Stephane’s music.
Here’s a tune written by Josephine Marsh; lovely tune, usually played a bit quicker than my approach – I’m going for a slow march here. Am playing it in the upper octave in G on a D/G Castagnari Mory, though I have a few things on my bass to make things a little easier than it would be on a usual 8 bass box.
