And yet another very nice tune. You are so creative! Just wondering about the name...
Is it referring to the state, "Indiana" in the US which is on the southern edge of Lake Michigan, or does it refer to something else? I was born and raised in Indiana, a small but delightful little state sandwiched between Illinois and Ohio. People from Indiana are called "Hoosiers". Sounds like
"Who' shers". Just a little (useless) information.

My daughter's friend's name hence the double n. Sweet girl, big voice. It was great to hear a couple of 14 year old playing music together (of course there was hair and make up too). Thanks for the support.

Here's what it sounds like on a melodeon (quick and rough run through). Indianna

My son, Willoughby is walking the wall this week (Hadrian's). So here's a tune for his adventure.

It's called Willoughby's Wall. Audio to follow soon - probably quick version on piano, then have to learn it on melodeon.

Just heard Dont wake the Baby. Nice Brotto-like percussive effects! Sophisticated arrangement and structure, with (is it)  a middle eight,even.   Not a tune I feel like learning..but admiration...and I'll go on now to hear your others.  Bravo for melodeonist composing!

Just enjoyed the one with your daughter playing the flute. I like that catchy opening tune with polka rhythm. My favourite so far because of the rhythm and articulation. Quality playing too. Bravo again  :|glug  :|glug

Thanks, Jack. All of these are helping my playing too, but the recordings are definitely not showcases. I appreciate the comments.

Here's a soundcloud piano version of Willoughby's Wall
Should have mentioned that this one is in G, and probably lies as well or better on a D/G box.

A short tune deliberately changing constantly, but hopefully retaining some organic feel. A bold ambition perhaps.
It's called Keep Up! Audio to follow.

And here's a piano run through
Keep Up
I've tried some of these out on melodeon, but they are far from under my fingers as yet. I do have the melodeon in my hands during the early stages of working the tune out... so definitely written with Melodeon in mind.

Back to A minor and 3/4 time. It's my default or where my heart is at the moment.
The title is a give away.

pdf updated to have title typo corrected. It had turned into a Christmas theme (Noel)

Here a quick run through of the tune on the piano. Seems to lie fine on Melodeon, though - which is the intention. It will just take me longer to get it reliable on the melodeon, whereas I can just bang them out on the piano.

Very nice Pete. I shall work at this one!

You might want to edit the title on the written music...  :|bl

Thanks for the thumbs up and the typo heads up. P.S. I'll buy you a pint if you're the first one to play one of my tunes! (Real pint, in person, not virtual).

Calling Bal experts: does this count as a Scottisch / valse? Let me know why, if not.
If anyone can work out why it's called Agamemnon I'll give them a big thumbs up.

Wow! There's some really nice music there. I particularly like Homage to Denecheau, so many thanks for posting the lead sheet and all the other material. I've started working on it on my bandonion today, not because of the offer of a pint, mind you!

What am I failing to grasp? Why do different chord sequences appear in different colours?

In my limited experience a waltz/Schottisch would have shorter phrases of each metre. Probably 4 bars of each alternating.
There are also some German dances that have all sorts of combinations of 3 and 4 time in different length phrases.

That's something that Delicq used to remind himself whether it was a push chord or pull (so on a G/C box the F or G chords and their cross chording) and for the right hand notes too. On manuscript, I've noticed he used a straight underscore line if the melody note was the same button as the previous one, but bellows change for pitch change. Useful. Especially when your memory is as bad as mine.
