i have this melody stuck in my head that i played on the flute and guitar, and i really want to know the title of it

i first heard it on Sci-Fi from this movie about the greek myth of Orhpeus, and he sang it in the underworld to put some guy to sleep

its also commonly heard in baby toys

the first 4 notes are A, D, E, and F (14th fret on 3rd string, 15th fret on 2nd, 17th on 2nd, and 18th on 2nd fret)


its has a medieval vibe to it

any idea of what its called?

I'm pretty sure it's greensleeves. Or possible Holsts Baritone solo in the final movement of Suite in F, Fantasia on the Dargason.. almost the same thing anyways.

maybe not? sorry, I'm confusing myself doing this half asleep.

I just don't think it's straight half/whole. I'm pretty sure there's some syncopation in there...

im confused too with the half asleepness haha

i think its actually quarter half quater half now that i stop and think about it. and its in 3/4. but there definately is some syncopation, i was just talking about the first 4 (most recogniseable) notes of the melody

If it was quarter half quarter half all the notes would then have the same duration. It definitely has some syncopation. It's just a Syncopated note along with a dotted quarter note for the rest of the measure. I'm not sure though, i'm doing this all in my head.

okay, it does start quarter half quarter but then it's a dotted quarter eighth quarter.

and that's obviously just the first six notes, but I'm glad to have figured it out.
