The Tunes The selection of tunes is based on their suitability for the Anglo and their popularity amongst Australian style players. The collection is unashamedly focused on collected Australian songs and tunes. Those collected from concertina players have been favoured, as have tunes collected from accordion or fiddle players who learnt them from a concertina player, such as a father or older relative or neighbour.
The tunes have been sourced by the following means: Interpreting recordings of older players is a labour of love. In amongst the flow and sweetness of the music there are missed notes, dud notes, mis-timings and memory lapses due to a number of significant factors. The musicians are unfortuneately often past their musical prime.
Intonation and timing can be rough and also the habitual trills and decorations that used to come easily previously can falter and distort the flow.
Instruments that have been neglected can be out of tune or adjustment. So it is important to view each transcription with a sceptical respect.
It is important to listen to the primary sources for yourself. The nuances of the style can never be transmitted by written music. Jacko Kevans remarked once that he knew of about sixteen different versions of the Irish Washerwoman, each adapted to suit a particular instrument, player or learnt in a particular region.
Good tunes are remarkably robust. They survive the contradictory tensions of decoration and simplification and the key and style changes as they move from instrument to instrument.
Publication of tunes is a useful means of distribution but unfortunately it can have the effect of ossifying them. This publisher and musician recommends the use of liquid paper and pen to "correct" or "adapt" written music.
Obviously this has its limitations when working with other musicians but the principle still holds. Within each section, tunes are presented in order of increasing difficulty.
The tunes are divided into: In Row Tunes for the 20 or 30 key anglo that are played on one row Cross Row Tunes for the 20 or 30 key anglo that are played cross row Three Row Tunes for the 30 key anglo using the accidentals row Scales and Exercises to improve fluency are included Click here for the Tune List Acknowledgements The performers who freely shared of their music and experience.
Those keepers of the tradition, who rode miles to play for dances in shearing sheds and barns, and sang round drovers campfires and in shearers huts. Who learnt tunes and songs from parents, grandparents, neighbours, fellow workers, itinerants, and played them on concertina, fiddle, accordion, mouth organ, penny whistle, piano, and more.
The collectors who had the insight to perceive the value of recording, preserving and playing the music and songs. Whether driven by political ideology or a perception of historical worth their work underpins any resurgence of interest in our traditional music. To quote C J Dennis "I dips me lid!
The folk who drive the organisations that foster the ongoing playing of the songs and tunes are doing a grand job. Finally, thanks to the players who have encouraged this project with practical contributions and with simple appreciation.
