I can manage Elsie Marley on the mandolin and I'd like to combine it with something else. Does it traditionally go with any other tunes? Can anybody please recommend anything, preferably something I can find at: www.leeds.ac.uk/music/Info/RRTuneBk/Alltunes/country.html#England

Graham

P.S.(If I may!)

I don't know about traditional pairings, but The Peacock Followed the Hen might do the trick.  I expect you know that the words for Elsie Marley are in the DT:  ELSIE MARLEY

We've all had to re-set our cookies lately, so it's not just you!  You can do it through the "Reset Cookie" option in the "Quick Links" box at the top of the page.

P.S. Re the website; if you use a combination of layers and absolute positioning, you're liable to wind up with text blocks super-imposed over each other, which is how your site appears when I look at it.

I always do "Hoop her and gird her" followed by Elsie Marley. It makes for a very nice key change indeed.

If I remember right, "Elsie Marley" is played usually in jig time, or can be readily phrased to it;a medley "fit" should be fairly easy to find---?

Thank you.

Thanks for the tip Malcolm. I'm a member again!! But regarding the website, I've not come across this problem before. My brother does websites professionally at

www.isle-of-wight.uk.com/iga/

He asked me to ask you what browser and browser version you are using.

Netscape 4.72, IE 4.72.3110 and Arachnophilia's internal browser.  Same thing with each of them!

Not mutch of a tunesmith myselfe but - If you sing Byker Hill and throw straight into Elsie Marley at the end of it it not only sounds great but but because E.M. gets a mention in B.H it seems quite a relevant thing to play.

Pretty much any Slip Jig should do it. Or how about a metrical change to 9/4 for a Cheshire Hornpipe?

Thanks for your suggestions. I'll see what I can find at the weekend on that website mentioned in my original query.

Malcolm.

My brother said:

I have Netscape 4.7 on this machine and the site looks fine. He must be one of a very few people who run with non-standard font settings. I can reproduce the "fault" by upping the font size. I have received two previous complaints (just two) about other sites I have written. I have explained to them how to set default font sizes.

Does that make sense to you?

Yes, it does.  I'm an illustrator, so I work at a higher screen resolution than most people do; for ease of reading, I have the display set to "large fonts".  I've checked the standard setting, and the superimposition doesn't occur there.  It might be worth bearing in mind, though, that as time goes on more and more people are likely to use settings like mine, so absolute positioning is probably not a good idea in the longterm.
