OK - not the classic (and to my ear a bit cliche) PA bellows shake, but because melodeon produces different notes, and we can also bring in a 2 note left end I feel melodeon has an edge in this.

I didn't use it much playing tunes, but very much admired what eg Derek the nutter did, as posted here.

Presently I'm very much into song - it is more or less indispensible! It propels rhythmic songs fantastically, as as I like Bb and Cm for my lyrical stuff, it is the best way to suggest eg awkward Ab or Fm chords and others I couldn't actually name, but sound right, without actually 'playing' them. This on 3 row.

So count me in. But we are very much in "use the Force" territory here?

This YouTube video demonstrates my interpretation and application of the pulsing technique referred to in the original post (as played by Paul Earwicker).
