Thread Name: Sweet Afton - which tune?
Subject: RE: Sweet Afton - which tune?
Hi, Tattie Bogle. I've been working on a medley too. But if you don't mind a suggestion, I think it would be fun for you to play various unrelated tunes, then play Flow Gently using a different tune each time. That way you don't have to compose bridges between the versions in different keys.
I have written down the tune by Samuel Carisi (American c. 1840), and I think it's a nice one. The Yellow-haired Laddie and the tune by Wetmore in the Levy Collection don't appeal to me, so I've done nothing with them.
If you would like to have the sticks and dots for the Carisi tune, PM me.
