And here is Dinna Tell 'Er Tarantella
So, had to save it as a PNG file, AND retitle it. So maybe it reads the title in the pdf, and the file name, and doesn't like something about the words?

Here's a quick play through to get the gist of the tune, it's not under my fingers yet - but I did only write it a couple of days ago...

Here's one in response to our table tennis club being banned from the local pub (I won't go into the reasons - but we're all calm and pleasant, so nothing to do with our behaviour).
Black Bulled

I've not done a DG version, as it goes fairly high, but if anybody wants one it's easily done.
Decided 2nd time bars needed a longer cadence, so I've changed those, and re-uploaded.
Also tried it on 3 voice DG and it works fine. So DG version too.

By the way, you might find a simple reason for the ban if you can recognise the quote in the first bar.

Here's a tune written in memory of my Dad.
The left hand begins with holding the first chord (3rds out, and pulsing the second chord on off beat quavers). So if it's written f---a--a--a
then the pull f chord is held with the a chord played on quavers 2, 4 and 6 of the bar.
Usually the pulsed chord (bare fifth) will prescribe the bellows direction.
I've recorded an audio version, where the only editing is that I left gaps between sections, which I then cut out in edit - just in case I wanted to rerecord one section only (actually I didn't need to - so this is essentially a live recording). There is no reverb or other edits. For those that care, recorded to Audacity with a Yeti mic set on Omni direction.
Only problem is the upload button seems to have disappeared on my soundcloud.

P&T, that tune for your father is excellent, thank you for sharing.  One day I would love to learn that!

Now a tune for a toddler friend of mine.
It's in 5/4 and called (for mixed reasons) Handful
Only posted for GC as it might be a bit high for DG. I'll try it later on the other box.

Here's a Soundcloud version of Handful - just to get the tune heard, recorded in a room I don't normally use, because of my daughter's sleepover using the better rooms. Banished!

OK, this is back to front from my usual way of putting tunes up. There is a rough recording first - before I actually type up the tune - because I was worried that I'd forget the intention of the left hand rhythm if I didn't get it recorded quickly.
It's written for Theo this time.

Thank you so much Pete.  I am delighted.   Now I have a new tune I have to learn.  I listened first and was surprised to see it notated in 6/8.  I was hearing it as a scottische, in 4/4 with lots of triplets.

I'll happily write it out in 4. Might take a few days to find the time.

No rush from me.   I'll be learning it by ear!

Here's an attempt to upload a scrolling score with a slower and accurate midi audio of Theosophy for anyone who wants to learn it by ear.

And a longer version that might be easier to see the intended detail that was fudged in the first recording. I'll remove the earlier recording later unless anyone tells me that they prefer it.

Here's another tune. This is a punchy 3+3+2 piece (hence its title).
The left hand part I'm using alternates 1 left hand bar of 3 stabs (on the irregular beats) - bass and chord together, and 1 bar of Om, pah, pah, Om, pah, pah, Om, pah.

Here's a rather lumpy version of it. I like playing this box a lot, but I do find it harder to play in time. I wonder if that sometimes on the pull the pallets are less easy to release when playing short notes - it's almost as if there is a suction force that needs to be overcome, despite the fact that the box isn't entirely airtight.
I'll have a go on the Serafini and see if it is easier.

Here's another tune. Written on the DG this time - but both keys posted here.
Dead Cat on account of not getting quite the feel I was really after as I was trying to play it.
I'll put up a video of it when it's more under my fingers.
