Here's the last of the holiday pieces.
Written in Messanges (whilst stopping traffic).
What I imagine is a Scottisch / Waltz - the A and B section fit together (maybe one to try with your concertina pal, Arty?)
Messanges is therefore the name.

Here's a kitchen sink recording of Les Poulets de Caupenne. These birds were lucky, this is Foie Gras country.

Here's a kitchen sink version of Skip 2, Malou. I decided that I can't really get a good recording whatever set up I try, so I might as well do it straight to camera.

Here's one in honour of our visiting vocal group from America, Northern Harmony. Looking forward to seeing them and (if I'm let out of a lesson) singing with them again. They'll finish the day with a Ceilidh local to Hexham if anyone's in the area on Friday 15th September. Give me a shout and I'll find the exact venue. Last year it was in one of the surrounding villages.
So this is called Northern Lights.
I've added a second line - either to be played as a variation or better still as 2 parts together.

And here's another straight to camera version of Tango Caupenne - my wife makes an unexpected entrance which I didn't notice was on camera until it was too late. She displays considerable patience seeing that I'm at her desk (my son was at my desk, my daughter was at my son's desk...) and I was banned from the kitchen.

Here's another kitchen sink performance, this is Northern Lights - I can actually imagine people dancing to this - the last section has some potential for dainty partner work (in my head at least).

And the remaining ones -
If you need Sciatica or Indianna for D/G it may have to wait a while.

Plodding my way through the intricacies of The Last Schmaltz in G.  It's certainly making me work hard with all the cross row stuff to get the bellows going in the right direction.  Is there any easy look-up place for Am/Em and the C/B, C/A, E/D chords?  Such a lovely tune. Bars 1-9 done.....

Let me see if I've got time to put a quick video up of chords for this tune.

Just had a quick look and some of the / chords are really only the bass notes, it's a code I used to remind me that only the bass note mattered - so you can try that to start with.

For Eggy
The A min chord (if you have 3rds on your instrument, it will give a major chord) is played by the pull bass A note, plus the C chord (from the C pair of buttons) - I usually use my index finger for the bass A, and my ring finger (or could be middle finger) for the chord button - which is obviously on the inside row.
The E minor chord is got by playing the E bass (middle finger, inside row) with the G chord (index finger, outside row).
The other one you might need is a B minor pairing, which is exactly the same as the E minor, but on the push rather than the pull.
I think in GC terms, so I might have slipped a mistake in transposing this in my mind - so if it doesn't work, ask again.

Pete:
For a D/G melodeon (which I think Little Eggy has) this isn't right.
E minor: there is a ready-made bass and chord on the pull - LH side, inside row of buttons, the pair nearest the ceiling.
B minor - best played as Bm7: LH side, inside row 2nd from top = B bass, plus outside row, top button = D chord. Play both together on the push.

Also see attached D/G chord chart (two pages)

Thanks, Steve. I should have had an instrument handy when I answered.

Here's a run through of Circulation. It does have a splice in the middle - my hand was getting sore (I think I may have broken something tiny or strained it with excessive golf practice).
I can of course put forward lots of excuses, but as usual I'm really only interested in the video supporting the sheet music on this thread. I will ask those who are tempted to put a thumbs down - there's frequently one. Please don't, just don't bother looking at the video.

Lovely playing! I don't know how anyone but an imbecile could put a thumbs down on this.

Thanks, Steve. I wasn't fishing for compliments - 'Lovely' is a little too generous of you. I'm aware it's a bit out of control, and brash. But I do really appreciate the supportive comments (and the advice over the last few years). I did put up a video as unlisted, and that did get a thumbs down, which limits where that could have come from, so I was a bit sore, I guess. It was around the same time someone else was feeling sensitive about responses to sharing youtube finds.
It also might stop others from risking uploads.
Maybe I should grow a thicker skin. I think people know I'm trying to put the tunes out rather than impress with my playing.

Here's a more conventional one. I set myself limits - no changes of time signature, limited chords, DG friendly. I did then have to rewrite a bit, because I broke a rule about metre change to throw the tune into full tipsy mode. Then I hung my head in shame, and rewrote that bit.

Here's another in my new line of simplicity.
Marionette - it has a harmony line / countermelody too.
