I sensed that I was getting carried away with unusual phrase lengths, and decided to go back to basics to see if I could write a tune with a conventional structure and no syncopations etc. but still have something about it.
I've complained in the past of not wanting to play tunes where you can predict what happens next. But now I've written one myself.
It's called Vanilla March, and fits quite well under the hands.

Liked this one also so transcribed it. Also attached the pdf output from ABCedit for the tabs for my HA114C. There is a question mark in bar 12 for the pull note (push notes on top, pull notes on bottom) as I do not have the note on my box in that octave so I have to fudge it.
Great tune!

Thanks, looking forward to hearing someone else have a go at a tune here.

Here's a slow pensive tune - the intention was to keep it in 3/4 but to use some irregular placement of simple open 5th chords to give the harmonic energy (rather than changing time signature or having more rapid chord changes). And also 3 bar phrase lengths for a loping quality.
Resurgence

By the way, it is easy for me to transpose these for other boxes - so rather than individuals writing them out again - just ask for a particular key. It's a 5 minute job to transpose and upload.

The majority of players here have D/G boxes so if you are writing for a G/C box simply add a transposition to the relative row. :)

Fair enough. I'll put up transposed versions for D/G box users.

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

Actually, found Indianna - just remembered it was a Muse score.

Here's a little tune just to get used to using harmony notes in the right hand that are a little independent from the melody. It may be that it suits reversal users only - haven't taken the time to think through a box set up I don't use - but it works well on my Dutch reversed set up.
I may need to take a break as my melodeon throat has reared up again (I did try out a bunch of boxes yesterday, so it could be that or just how much playing I've been doing recently). This does mean that I won't be able to demonstrate Recycle or this tune (Weave) for a while. Sorry.

Removed pdfs as there was a mistake in the second bar - see later post for corrected pdfs

Here's another simple tune. No tricks - hence title. But the notes in red are the descending scale that have an extra life outside of the tune and emphasising a little.
Nothing Up My Sleeve
As I said in the previous post - I'll have to record on piano only for a while. Audio to follow.

Sorry - just spotted a mistake in the score in bar 2. Here are the amendments. I may be able to play this one as it won't take much learning (allergy flare up).

Here's a tune that somehow reminds me of the Wild West and the 60s -with a dash of Horst Jankowski. So, for no good reason, I've called it Space Hopper. I always forget to include tempo markings, this one grooves at around crotchet = 160 bpm.

And here's a soundcloud version on the Hohner Erika that I bought on German ebay earlier in the year. Theo did the reeds, I fiddled around with the mechanics (enjoyably). I'd still like to find a way of lightening the left hand action, as I'd play it much more if I could sort that out.

Here's a more standard tune - regular phrase lengths, slower harmonic pace etc.

A tune I wrote for my father-in-law, who is a life long music lover.
There are 3 sections which can be played together or separately.
