Silta (Bridge)

Silta (‘Bridge’ in English) was written by Markku Lepisto, a fine melodeon player from Finland. It’s a remarkable tune, in 3 parts and a rather irregular structure.

Markku normally plays it on a G/C; here I’m playing it on a D/G Castagnari Mory. Haven’t got quite all the fancy bass runs that Markku does, but hey, that’s why he’s a professional musician, and I’m not!

Played as part of’s Theme of the Month for October 2010, ‘Tunes from Scandinavia.’.

Rusty Gully’s Tune of the Month for June 2010 – Rusty Gully

My version of this 3/2 hornpipe from the north east of England (which is where I was born incidentally). No video of me this time; instead we have some lovely photos by Gail Johnson of St Mary’s Lighthouse, Whitley Bay (find her on Flickr – sorry Gail, I would give a proper link to your pictures, but youtube tends to reject anything with a web address in it).

Played on a D/G Castagnari Mory with lots of reverb.

Ashokan Farewell

Ashokan Farewell by Jay Ungar. Used by Permission. All rights reserved.

Played on a D/G Castagnari Mory, but in G, rather than the usual key of D. The basses are unisonoric, so may not be what you expect if you’re trying to follow them! 🙂

The tune’s been ‘stretched’ slightly to fit into a 4/4 time signature rather than 3/4 as originally written by Jay.

Part of’s tune of the month January 2010.

Princess Royal

A minor key version of Princess Royal, played in Am on a D/G Castagnari Mory by Clive Williams. The basses are modified (unisonoric) to allow the drone effect (and more).

Heavily based on a fiddle version of Princess Royal played by Chris Wood, english singer, songwriter, guitarist and violin player.

Part of’s tune of the month December 2009.
