Here's my version, played in C on the Hohner Liliput G/C conversion by Kay Albrecht.

Straight down the line version, I would say. Normally I'd play this in D, but I'm rather loving this box at the moment.

Cheers,

Clive

Here's a tune from me; unusually for me, this is a 'learned completely from scratch' job. Learned off Craig Duncan's 'Bluegrass Christmas' album, an Irish Hornpipe in a modal key, Frost and Snow.

I was quite surprised that this fits on a normal 2 row 8 bass, but as you see it does. No thirds in the basses though. Played on the G/C Albrecht Liliput.

Cheers,

Clive

... does anyone have any comments on the use of D7 and Am in these tunes in particular, and on how to make these double-button bass chords sound any way good on my pokerwork (given that they sound very tinny-growly, even aside from the question of how these chords sounds in accompaniment with the treble side)?

Assuming you're playing C bass with a pull or push D chord for D7 and A bass with a pull C chord for Am they should work fine on a DG pokerwork. I'm not sure about tinny, but growly is good, in my book.

They should sound good with the melody if they're been played in appropriate places. They're a pretty standard way to go.

Thanks all! But the issue of the appropriateness of bass accompaniment to particular kinds of music aside, does anyone have any comments on the use of D7 and Am in these tunes in particular, and on how to make these double-button bass chords sound any way good on my pokerwork (given that they sound very tinny-growly, even aside from the question of how these chords sounds in accompaniment with the treble side)?

The emojis on melnet and similar are graphic images inserted by the forum software to replace certain sequences of characters in the text.
A Unicode  character is actually part of the font, so you'll be able to use the accordion emoji when (and only when) you can install a font that includes it.

Beautiful tunes.
Hope I get you hear you play these.

Pity about the silly woman playing on her computer. Would have spoiled the concert for me.

Given that the number of tunes know is difficult to define being a variable that varies too much I have come up with my own simpler calculation - and a way of reducing my box score at the same time. Given that in this house we both play melodeon but I am the one with the collecting habit I have decided to add up the total number of boxes in the house and divide by the number of players.

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.

Another fantastic tune from Andy Cutting...

I already have the dots for 'Lola Flexen' - I reckon I can pick up the second by ear at least to 'just about recognisable' level but if anyone has got the dots for it that would be great !
