I saw two people doing a clog dance at Whitby to a 10/8 version of the Tenpenny Bit.

It was a bit hard for me to hear it properly from where I was standing. Anybody got an ABC or YouTube link for it?

I looked at the thread title - 10/8-Penny Bit - and worked out that 10 eighths of a penny is a penny farthing. Are there any possibilities there for a song/tune/dance?

Interesting meter...

Even as a 4/5

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Please post an example.

Seems to me there are two ways to do it, dropping quavers here and there. You either use 3+3+2+2 or the Middle Eastern sama'i metre, 3+2+2+3. I think the Whitby players did the first.

Original:

X:1
T:The Tenpenny Bit
M:6/8
L:1/8
K:ADor

eAA eAA|BAB GBd|ede gdB|BAG A3:|
eaa aga|bag edB|eaa aga|bge g2d|\
eaa aga|bag edB|BAB edB|BAG A3:|


3+3+2+2:

X:2
T:The Tenpenny Bit
M:10/8
L:1/8
K:ADor
eAA eAA BA GB|eAA eAA de gf |\
eAA eAA BA GB|ede gdB BG A2:|
eaa aga ba eg|eaa aga be g2 |\

Sama'i:

So....

ONE, two, three...ONE two,...ONE, two,...ONE, two, three?

Is there and example in D.T.?

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

That might take some serious practice for the bass.

Look at Middle Eastern sheet music resources and you'll find a lot of stuff in sama'i (semai in Turkish). "Lamma bada" is the best known outside the Middle East.

It's a bit more sophisticated than just a time signature. The percussion accompaniment recognizes light/high and heavy/deep beats, "tek" and "dum". Each bar of the semai pattern goes

dum --- --- tek --- : dum dum tek --- ---
