Got my new (old) Hohner pre-Corona into presentable tuning this week, so I thought I'd try a waltz. This is a Cajun fiddle tune that I found in a book of fiddle tunes years ago. It's a bit more do-able on the three row to smooth out some of the runs without working the bellows so much. It's called: Valse des Jonglements

Just lovely.  Thankyou.

Not had much time for melodeons in the last few weeks, but thought I'd add this pretty basic version of Sweet Jenny Jones, a morris tune I like and so am able to play reasonably well - maybe I like it because I can play it reasonably well? (it seems to fit a one-row nicely as it is very much up and down with few bellows changes). Not the most polished performance and the left-hand is as simple as it gets, but it's the best I've got to offer for now:

A fine rendition, well done.

And who would have thought of going to your local Halford's Bike Hut to record it

Thank you, and well spotted! My other hobby is bikes and, when it comes to our house, I'm only allowed to indulge in melodeon playing or bike fettling in there. A fair enough concession from my wife really seeing as it should be the dining room...

My first go at a Theme of the Month is here.......

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgUJtovc6pQ&feature=youtu.be

Thought I'd experiment with things a little and find out what effect the thirds stop has, having never had to think about one before!
Hmmm..... might be a tad on the 'quick waltz' side, but that is down to the effect of turning on a recording device in front of me!

Thought I would post a real old-timey Central European-sounding waltz. On my GC Merlin:

And on my vintage Hohner BbEb box:

(Sorry about the poor quality - the only way I can get my videos to load at the minute is on the lowest quality setting.)

It's ages since I heard or played this one. Time to revive it especially in the light of this sad news as you quite rightly say Lester; and well played,

I have been meaning to try this for a while, as it was the Chris Wood and Andy Cutting recording of La Choca (with the Old Queen) that inspired me to take up the melodeon last year.  The Waltz theme sounded like a good reason to have a go.

There is still one bar in particular that eludes me when it comes to recording :-\, but feel that I am making some progress with it.  A bit like British Rail.

Nicely done - it's a shame this one never made it through the TOTM jury (yet), because it's really beautiful especially slowed down like this. The CW/AC recording isn't quite as powerful as it could have been with its quick pace I think.

Thank you very much Clive (:).  (Went back and had another listen to the 'original' and indeed mine is heaps slower.  Confess this was not musical judgement - I just couldn't manage it any faster!)

Hello all,

On the last day of the month my modest contribution "E Schip" (A ship), a beautiful waltz made by Wannes Van De Velde (a very well known Flemish folk singer/musician).

Greetings,
Daniel

Hi

OK so this is really late. It sounds very much like a waltz (3/4) but is a mazurka.
It's taken from the tune book 'Danson la morvandelle' compiled by Mike Gilpin.

Mazurka a Lucas

It kind of sounds like a German oom pa pa thing...though of course it's  French.
