Two tunes Italian Waltzes.

My contribution to TOTM , warts and all. The recording is a one-take , and then my Hard drive went kaput , so it has taken a while to rebuild everything. Melodeon is a Hohner Erica in G/C .

Here's one last August Waltz from me, Guy Loyer's "Hommage à Philippe Bruneau":

It's often paired (thanks no doubt to La Bottine Souriante) with Danielle Martineau's "Valse d'hiver," which I uploaded earlier this month (http://youtu.be/wP9-VfMvpA4). They're both enormous fun to play on a one-row.

I've almost forgotten how to play it this year, anyway for the sake of participation:

Recorded on Smethwick High Street, material taken from an album called "L'organetto di Zi Nicola", no credits, but it's basically old waltz material.

At that distance the box looks like a coke can.  Giustozzi, it's the real thing.

Thanks all - some great stuff here this month. Time for a new theme; post late additions here as normal of course.

Cheers,

Clive

Sounds suspiciously like "Save the last dance for me", but apparently it's not.  From a recording by Castrese Bevilacqua but without the drum machines and birdsong.  Bellows changes too rough, partly because left arm too stretched out.

I was looking for a new waltz played on melodeon and found George's Stronsay waltz:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Es1rMLTisbw
Stronsey waltz and Rope Waltz.  I put them on you tube some time ago using only laptop and playing them on a 3 voice mmm trichord I had just been given  as requiring a complete rebuild - so warts and all 'youtube stronsey waltz'

So here's my contribution to THoTM August 2015 - only 1,5 years later.

Very nice indeed! I also really like the tone of the instrument. Now you need to record the Orkney Rope...

Mike, thanks for your encouragement! I'm glad you like the tone - it's a simple Weltmeister box. Actually quite a good box - after repairing he keyboard with a lot of elbow grease.
Rope waltz will take a while, though ...
