"Marianna's Hambo"

I want to share what I think is how to play the basic melody of this bouncy Swedish dance tune that switches between major and minor!

Learned by listening to the group "Spælimenninir" in the Anyone Interested in a Scandinavian Fiddle Genre? Thread

 

Thought I would post this here (Teaching Section) because so much traditional music is learned from watching someone else. 

 

 

  1. I'm playing this to possibly help others who might be interested in this fun tune (please forgive imperfections from recordingitis - lol).
  2. Also hoping to find out if anyone has information to share on what might be more correct for this tune? 
  3. Anyone know of sheet music for this?
  4. I'm treating this as 3 parts (aa, bb, cc, repeat). 
  5. I have played around with ornamentation for this... but that's for a later date. (lol) 

 

Give it a try?

I hope you will give this one a try - it's

much more fun to play when you don't have to record it!

Geez, it's almost a year & a half later! 

I went back to listen to Spælimenninir play Marianna's Hambo

😳 Hate to say it, but it doesn't sound like the same tune I played anymore! 

 

...oh well, back to the drawing board - amazing how much our ears change! (lol)

@ABitRusty -

Thanks!  

There's a real obvious note combination in the 1st part of this tune that needs to change - finding similar misunderstandings in some of my other tunes, too. 

...at least I've fixed my bow grip since this video. (lol)  Glad I recorded it.

Guess it's worth checking on all the early tunes - figure I loved specific versions enough to try to learn them by ear, so I'd like to get them as close as I can.   

Spent last night changing another tune... at least it's not as bad as relearning the whole thing. 🙄 

Probably should 'do over' the recording of Marianna's Hambo - it's a GREAT tune & just feels good playing it! 

...maybe someday I'll even get off my butt & try to put the 'dot's' on paper, but not sure I want to deal with notating all my microtones. (lol)

@elcbk said.." not sure I want to deal with notating all my microtones. (lol)"

Yeah.. Id have to figure out the symbol for "-ish" to place next to notes.
