It used to play full length, I will see if I can find it.................but have changed computers, and my grandkids love 'tidying things up'. I won't promise a definite 'repost' 'cos I seem to have 'lost' any desire to make music this days.........maybe ?
Yeah, I bet Jim is sneaking about trying to learn a few "Aulde Englishe" tunes so he can fit in...
I think I vaguely recall it always having cut off at 1:53, even many years ago. JH- you could upload the original video to Youtube now if you still have it, and it would then be like brand new. Certainly would be worthwhile and would make your many 'fans' happy!
This was originally uploaded to our fotmd site on Ning, back in 2010... on our new site here members cannot actually upload videos to the site directly- you have to add them via either Youtube or Vimeo. (that means fotmd won't have to pay more and more to host our approximately 2,500 videos and counting).
Chuckle, I suspect Jim is seeking out 'common ground', some tunes that we might play together when he gets to Bristol UK next month !
You are correct Jan, it does cut out as you describe.........perhaps its due to it being a long time resident here and not much used ?
Thank you for liking it..................good to remember that I doubt you will find 'the middle bit' shown in any SMN............I just sorta played it as infill
I'm not sure how Jim Fawcett found this in order to "like it", but I'm glad he did--and glad his liking it showed up on the Home page--because I wanted to refresh this tune in my mind. I really like this version and the video is clear enough to help others learn the tune.
When I play the video, however it always just stops at 1:53 and won't complete the rest...anyone else have that issue? It's supposed to be 2 min. 22 sec. in duration.
John Henry - this is excellent. I always play this faster, but I really like the meditative, plaintive quality of it here. Very nice!
