Your favourite You Tube clip in 2013?
« on: December 16, 2013, 05:12:11 PM »

I was just thinking that many of us on this site probably spend a lot of time watching / listening / learning from melodeon clips on You Tube. Some of them are educational, some plain inspirational. During 2013, what are the best clips you have seen and for what reason?

For me, with my limited playing experience, any of Lester's are educational and I thank him for all his videos. For plain, jawdropping inspiration, it has got to be this man: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKfNJ_nuYbM

Definitely Naragonia: Les deux frères

Why? I know the two, I like their style - and this song is just beautiful.

I know it's about 3 years old, but I only discovered it this year.

Thanks Anahata.

Have to give Clive the palm for this one, although he posted half a dozen I could have chosen. All the virtues of his wonderful playing are apparent in this version of Kristjani Reilender:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fM-0lM_npmQ

That said, if we count these strange boxes, another amazing version of that tune is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H83TvjTJeXs  .  Wonderful as well.

Roland Carson's version of Andy Cutting's The Abbess is top stuff as well. Again Roland had a dozen things that I keep coming back to:    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ce0nipDNmOw

So, a hard question.  I've been a pretty regular you tube listener, and if you look up Novascotian you may find some things you haven't seen yet (concertina as well as melodeon).  Anahata, Clive, and Roland are my favourite melodeon players.  Anneke Slagter is also a very accomplished stylist, and I listen to her playlist frequently. Like Roland and Clive, she's a very philosophical player. Lester Bailey is also great for the more rustic style and he hits a very authentic note.  So cheers to all.

Most inspiring was seeing this http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bs7r7e0oDPY played on a two row, just awesome was this http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=noNffP0KDo8 one by the same guy.  I was really happy to find the tablature sites of Bernard Loffet and Erwan Tanguy, an inspiration as well, as they have seriously added to my repertoire, and I find the slow deliberate pace of this player's take on Bal de la marine very helpful, especially as the tablature I had for this song didn't play out right forcing me to figure it out by ear http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6cp0nDo3H9w
Last but not least, I think it was Jack Humphreys who posted an English version of La Nonchalant on this very site, and I gotta say I found it very moving.  I will stop there as there are just too many to list. I spend way to much time watching melodeon videos on YouTube, but I guess the only behavior it is replacing is time watching the regular tube so no real loss.

Thanks - that's really kind and somewhat flattering!

Here's a couple of my favourite clips...

Bruno le Tron playing Brehattitude (skip past the first minute or so of the video and get to the playing!)

http://youtu.be/dXOFLSyyR0k?t=29s

... and for just about the most sublime accordion video ever, (apologies for the thread drift; it's a CBA), there's Richard Galliano...

Martin Ellison's version of The Sussex Waltz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GN_tt6GsyRM

Really inspired me to pick up a box and bang out some tunes and shows exactly what you can do with a standard, unmodified, 2-row box.

Seconded; but that's a pretty special box (+ player) in my estimation.

It would be one of the Norwegian tunes. The have a good strong rhythm but at the same time a nice smoothness and melodic quality. Here's a good one:

this guy who demos boxes on Marc Serafini's website.

I think I read somewhere else on Melnet a while ago that the player is Marc Serafini himself.

Most of the melodeon stuff is towards the end  (:)

Great. Can I take back the part where I said it looks like he is playing while asleep? My dream box is a Serafini, and no telling what that statement would do to his already astronomical prices were he to see it. He would probably charge me double and spit in the bellows....

And just what, please, do you consider an "astronomical price" ??
