“Linzer and Randell based the melody on the familiar "Minuet in G major" (BWV Anh. 114) from J.S. Bach's Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach.[2] One key difference is that the "Minuet in G major" is written in 3/4 time, whereas "A Lover's Concerto" is arranged in 4/4 time. Although often attributed to Bach himself, the "Minuet in G major" is now believed to have been written by Christian Petzold.”

I like this, it gives us all a chance to think about it for a while...maybe someone who is already in bed will have a chance in the morning.

You guys are getting the band back together? Cool…Do you need a crappy banjo player?

Is it Walk the Line?

I WALK THE LINE is not the song I had in mind (MACK THE KNIFE) but it is viable so I declare you a winner! Your prize is a Canadian "Get Out Of Jail Card Free" for when you walk that line under the supervision of the RCMP. I know this is not politically correct.

Mack the Knife was a hit in the 50's but that song is much older than that. It actually has a pretty interesting history: wiki link

Yep, Satchmo got it going in 50's but kept it in the key of Bb.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/05/2018:  06:17:45


I remember Bobby Darin’s version...got a lot of airplay in S. Ontario/W. New York

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/05/2018:  06:20:19


I will now hand the baton over to the winner of my coin flip....whoever gets closest has the next turn. Give Mike a few hours to finish his forty winks and brush his tooth

FlyinEagle - Posted - 04/05/2018:  06:45:17


I think Bobby Darin's version was a bigger success, but Satchmo's version is probably my favorite. Although, I do like Frank's version too, because...Frank.

mmuussiiccaall - Posted - 04/05/2018:  06:55:35


O.K. then which famous mandolinist is playing it here?



BTW to teach some theory to lurkers the Darin version starts in Bb and modulates up chromatically (1 fret ) until it reaches the key of Eb. It does this by playing the 5th of the target key  Bb (F#) B (G) C (Ab) Db (A) D (Bb) Eb



chord progression I6   16    2m7    2m7   2m7    57  16  16   3m7  b3dim   2m7  2m7  57 57 16 #57

Yes Jethro which means ABUNDANCE in Hebrew, in his case, musical ability and wit!

I’m going to throw one out there before Russ drops some Chopin on the thread:

Since we’re getting a little jazzy…

The 1st theme of this swing jazz hit is literally just a syncopated and arpeggiated major chord (1-3-5) over 2 bars. The phrase is played twice, bumps up one whole step for 1 repetition, back down 1 step for 1 repetition, then jumps up 2 whole steps for a final repetition.

Well shoot.  That was easy.



 



Congratulation Chuck Van Dyke!  You have won an all expenses paid trip to the Cove Haven Pocono Resort, where you and your lucky guest can get “In the Mood”.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/05/2018:  10:06:06


This jazz standard’s first three notes outline the notes of the tonic’s major 7th chord, minus the root, starting on the fifth.

MISTY it is ! Rick, you are now the proud owner of a vintage, but dilapidated, upright piano, with prewar tacks on the hammers. You can pick it up at Rocky’s Junk and Curio Shop, Rte. 35, Chillicothe, OH.

Thank you Chuck, sometimes it takes a lifetime to get things right!

Haha,,,but wait! Did Rocky expire? Such a shame...

mmuussiiccaall - Posted - 04/05/2018:  13:09:46


Okay how 'bout a song I remember playing at the Playboy Club, yahoo, in the 70's that has an 8 chord repetitive progression where the first 5 of them move up in 4ths.

Mooooo - Posted - 04/05/2018:  13:36:32


I guess it's Sweet Georgia Brown

mmuussiiccaall - Posted - 04/05/2018:  14:40:43


Nope sorry but a good guess the song was from the 70s

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/05/2018:  16:10:44


25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago?

Mooooo - Posted - 04/05/2018:  16:15:34


I was just checking out Harry Truman by Chicago chuckv97 , but neither of them move up in 4ths for the first five chords of eight. I am thinking Disco since it's the Playboy club though.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/05/2018:  16:17:25


Mercy! disco sucks! lol

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/05/2018:  16:18:08

Mike I know you won't sleep until your beautiful disco ball alarm clock arrives. If you are a heavy sleeper fret not, the 1,000 watt spot and the built-in disco mp3s will wake you up for the rest of your life.

P.s.Please do not off yourself or the disco ball after the second day.

Alright, after much consideration and re-consideration, the next tune on Name That Tune is a song. The intro is based on Pachebal's Cannon and the verse uses the same chord progression while the chorus Is I V IV I. Have fun.

That’s Pachelbel, and you might want to check up on the difference between a “cannon” and a “canon” . . .

Thanks for the awesome spelling lesson, I am bowing my head in shame. Do you have a guess for the clue, or are you just here as part of the Bluegrass/Spelling Police Association?

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/05/2018:  22:16:06


Oh yeah....



 

Mooooo - Posted - 04/05/2018:  22:32:05


The song was originally recorded by Canadians believe it or not.

Rawhide Creek - Posted - 04/06/2018:  05:49:01


I received a telephone inquiry from a bride-to-be wanting our string quartet to play for the ceremony and reception.



She specifically wanted “that Mexican song that gets played at weddings a lot” for the processional.



Since I could think of no material matching that description, I asked if she could give more information.



She replied, “I think it’s called the Taco Bell canon . . . “



Sigh . . .

Please tell me you are joking.

The only difference between Pachebal's Cannon wink and Taco Bell Canon is the loud "Ole" at the end.
