I love the duo 21 Boutons and I have wanted to learn this tune since I first heard them playing it. It has taken me quite a while to have the confidence to record it but I have done it today, on a wild, windy and wet Sunday afternoon, sitting in near darkness.  Only after I had finished it, I realised I had cut the end off too soon, so the finish is very abrupt, to say the least! Forgive this - I shall record it again, another day.

Not a Black Pearl 2, but a Paolo Soprani, which is almost identical. For sale from the Hobgoblin Brighton branch here:

Also at the Brighton branch is a 'Dino Baffetti' D/G melodeon, currently awaiting further details and a photo.

It might be worth giving them a call.

To me its very dependent on the tune. 7th chords, by containing both the root and the seventh, have notes only a tone apart. That always creates a bit of a clash. Now some songs use that, take "Go Down Moses", on the phase "Let my people go" and "people" always has a seventh chord, its needed so you can resolve on "go".

On a melodeon its also sometimes given by the instrument, e.g. when you only have major chords on the left hand, if you want a minor chord, your only option is to add a minor third below the root, to give a minor seventh chord - and if thats the only minor chord you have, then use it.

Some songs have seventh chords, and to my mind they don't seem to need it.

Ah!  I see that I am late to notify this.  Mods please feel free to delete.  I’ve tried without success.

It is reassuring to know that I actually own so few boxes, so few in fact that I don't even qualify for the soubriquet 'Nine Box Nellie' any more.

Are you including other free reed squeezy things in this arithmetic?

It’s a different tradition where the melody line is the the thing.  As with a session of any tradition it’s polite to listen first and understand what is happening, before jointing in.
Yes - you mitres well do it as it helps you dovetail into the session. More - 'tis good practice, especially if there's more than ten on yer there. Butt - don't let it put you off. Lap it up and see.
Don't forget your scarf when you eventually go home.

Getting my coat now...

Hi Roger. I dug out an old recording of a session with a B/C box player and a tenor banjo playing the Yellow Wattle as a two part jig, similar to the version you mentioned. I slowed it down about 10% to make it a bit easier to learn. It goes alright on a D/G box too, and I agree with you that it would also suit a single row C box.

It never gets played at my local sessions, so I've not really learned to play it properly.
Good luck with it!
