re: Got a couple of minutes so here goes

I am fond of country music and older music (not real old). Some the things I have in my songbook already are:

Yakety Sax (aka the Benny Hill theme song)

Loony Toons (that's all folks! - suggest this for the end of concerts)

The Gambler, Kenny Rogers

Friends in Low Places, Garth Brooks

Also, Concerning Hobbits is a must for any Concerning Swifty performance. This one is in the Forte playbook in various amounts of performers, I saw it written for 2, 3 and 4 plus I think I have it for 6 from previous performances.

I also have some that I think sound great solo, these include the theme from James Bond and the theme from The Pink Panther. Not sure that these would go over as well for concerts.

 

I will add more later.

Lilikate from Lotroplayers has a songbook for download at the following link:

http://lotroplayers.com/2015/09/25/lilikates-public-song-library/

There are some songs from the movies like

14-The Shire

24-FOTR (Strings and Percussion)

24-FOTR (Wind and Brass)

As a potential listener, I suggest try to develop a line up that has a little bit of everything that would appeal to all types of music listeners (rock, pop, country, top 10 hits, etc.)

As a rock n'roller myself, if you could find an abc file of Metallica's Enter Standman, that would be cool. I also saw in one of Brygards videos that the former band played Don't Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult. That was cool too. Gotta love that cowbell.

Cowbell 24/7 or go home.

 

--Dod, that one dwarf who knew a hobbit minstrel once, that used to be the best minstrel on the server, who once had a cowbell....or something like that.

 not sure you can afford one but I'm sure if you drop by one of those fluff music thingies on Landy you can pick one up.

 

I think it would be easier to get someone to write Dueling Dorfs... or Dualing dorfs... who knows with dorfs?

I good with adding any song really, but some of the ones I like to get:

Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin

Battle of Evermore also by Led Zeppelin

Concerning Hobbits, of course.

The Trees by Rush

Folk Melodies of any kind

 

I've been looking around about how to make write ABC music but it's pretty confusing. It's essentially a form of computer coding language is all I get from it; so its Greek to me.

And if anyone finds a ABC version of Misty Mountain Hop, again by Led Zeppelin, please post the link.

I suggested 'I've Got A Loverly Bunch of Coconuts', and Gil said we needed to dedicate it to Wulfy!

I enjoy the Irish-folky stuff like 'Whiskey in the Jar' and 'Wild Mountain Thyme", most jigs and reels and hornpipes, Pachelbel's Canon in D, as well as any symphony stuff.

Echi, I very much admire your taste in music.  I enjoyed listening to all three of those, the Canon especially.   Thank you so much!
