Some Cajun waltzes from a recording of Bois Sec Ardoin

Still squeezing after all these years.
Mostly on hohners , with a couple of Dinos and a smattering of anglos - and now a Jeffries duet

Even more interesting is the tag #Electronic ...  ;D
I like it very much! I think you played basses throughout the tune. There are some bars where the single row's chords are "wrong" - amazing it doesn't matter at all.

Ok, here goes, my first ever ThOTM!

Zodiac Waltz, learned from Steve Freereeder to whom I personally apologise for the wrong note in the last couple of bars, but it was the best version I could manage!  Featuring my new (to me) Castagnari Tommy - I have only been playing for a year and a half so all pointers welcome. And I know I speed up, nerves get the better of me but I'm working on it.

Well done Vicky! Of course I'll forgive the 'wrong note' at the end. Anyway, it's just a variation...  ;D

All you need to do now is play it at about half-speed and you'll be perfect!  :Ph
Seriously, great stuff though! Keep it up...

Thanks Steve, Arty and Nigelr for your lovely comments, duh, of course a waltz should be slow enough to actually dance to! Bloomin nerves! And no nigel, my ebay pokerwork is still to be found around the highways and byways of Yorkshire as I play it when playing with Silkstone Greens. First ThOTM wasn't so scary after all, maybe next stop TOTM!

Dear God, thank you for helping me get, and play the melodeon, and harmonica. I am extremely grateful for these gifts! Amen.

Today, I have recorded another tune on my Mundinger Diaton III! The tune is In the Good Old Summertime, which is an American waltz.  ;D

Enjoy!  ;D

Heißa Kathreinerle - Och Flickan Hon Går I Dansen

(previously recorded with English Concertina - here adapted for the "Dark Side")

I enjoyed it. I'd rather listen to yours than to mine which I edited to blend the best sections of two takes, and ended up taking the life out of.

What are the 'right' speeds for waltzes in different countries?
