I think I'm starting to get most of the notes in roughly the right order...... sometimes!

Hmmm... so often when I think I am getting a good play of the tune, something happens at the very end!

Better late than never?  You can be the judge of that.

http://soundcloud.com/i-k-3/sounds-from-monday-afternoon

This is Valzer di Giuseppe, adapted from an old Calabrian recording (well it's tacked onto the end of an album by another Calabrian musician anyway) by Giuseppe Chiatto.  There are the usual mistakes I make when I press record.  More to the point, I can't get the feel of the original.  He sounds like a very relaxed old man who doesn't care what you think.  I don't.  Nice tune though if you like that sort of thing.

Better not as late as me, that's for sure.

Sometimes the best things arrive fashionably late.....I'm glad to hear this tune recognized in the melodeon world, and especially played by someone like yourself.  (:)

Waltzes are my bugbear, so much so that I made a resolution to practice them harder, so this theme has come at a good time.  I have been working on Wals voor Polle but I'm not sure I'll have it quite right before the end of the month.

not intended as a contribution to tune for the month  I have more or less accidelntally put a couple of waltzes on you tube. Having just bought a laptop complete with camera etc built in I was experimenting to see how you put something on you tube and must have pressed the 'go' button accidentally. Cant find the removal procedure so its there complete with a couple of cock ups  as I plaaed it on a doer upper trichord with one strap & I always use 2 straps so hanging on to the keyboard is not my cup of tea

For what its worth it comes up under you tube hohner trichord  and its the Stronsay waltz and the rope waltz

Nice one George. Didn't realize you were a southpaw, playing a Hohner obviously marketed for the USSR... ;)

Nicely done. I too am a fan of The Waltz books but had not tried Amelia -- so many waltzes to choose from that it's hard to know where to start. Thanks for posting it.

I have it on good authority that Volume IV is in preparation and will contain a couple of nice tunes from around my way  ;)

That's an interesting waltz, and nicely played too. I see the box in the video is a Hohner, but what model is it?

thanks, Ian

Thanks, Ian.  It's a  Hohner Galaad G/C  which I bought last year.  I played B/C before, and being new to this style of box, I liked having the extra accidentals and the thumb switch to remove thirds. I'm also satisfied with the sound and button action, considering it's price range.

Two Cajun waltzes, learned back in 1977 from an LP by Canray Fontenot and Bois Sec Ardoin.

Bit late, I know. But still... here's a Swedish waltz.  Thought I ought to get one or two tunes down as haven't been posting for a while
