I've recently become a bit obsessed with a beautiful Polska that Andy Cutting plays in this video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSOl7lUysAw. He says what it's called at the start but I can't work out the name and don't know anything else about it. (If anyone can either work out what he's saying, or knows what it's called, I'd love to know.)

Here's my attempt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akGXqlopJkg&feature=youtu.be

Excellent stuff butimba! Really liked the little descant that you put in.  (:)

That's a tune called Ã…repolska, as played here by Hoven Droven - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVbPRP6fzFY Traditional Swedish are far as I know.

Thanks for both your kind comment (that's the pianist in me coming out  (:)) and for naming the tune. Hooray! It's interesting to hear a fiddle version of it.

Now this one is very untitled, as it's over 800 years old. I've uploaded a version before which I performed live with my friend Steve on a gurdy. It's a bit awkward on the D row with some annoying reversals, but here's a vaguely clean recording at least!

I like the simplicity of your playing on this tune, and all the space between the phrases at the start - it really suits it.

Argh, I've heard that tune somewhere before too and can't remember its name. Nice playing too!

Cheers!

As you can see from the picture this tune is actually headed [No Title] so it seemed a good one to try and learn for this.
It turns out that it's a lovely little tune, I've tried adding a RH harmony second time round which I mostly got right on the recording!

(Disclaimer: I've only been playing the Melodeon since October so the performance is not as smooth as most people's here - it was the best I could do ;) )

That's brilliant progress for just a couple or 3 months' playing and good on you for contributing your playing to the thread.  :||: (:)

That was really great Butimba; thank you.  I am now going to have to have a go at that myself...

Really enjoyed Le Grand Bal du Bath in November last year - particularly Dave Shepherd & Anna Pack. This is my attempt at one of the tunes they played. Would like to know what it's called and whether it is traditional or contemporary.

Yes, that's really nice! It's an Avant Deux from Poitou in France, traditional I believe. Benoit Guerbigny did a fantastic album 'Les Pieds sur la Braise' a few years back, which was for me my first introduction to Poitou music, including this tune (and lots of other great stuff). You can see a video of Dave Shepherd playing it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlWs1wrld78

Cheers,

Clive

Ah thanks Clive. I'm always more comfortable knowing the name of a tune. In fact, even if someone is playing a tune I know, often I can't join in until I know what it's called. Something weird about the way the human brain works. And mine!

This CD arrived this morning from those nice people at Auvergne Diffusion. Some great tunes! Thanks for the recommendation, Clive.

PS In the same packet was the first 21 Boutons CD ... Something else to enjoy.
