Here's 323.
For some reason (probably just to get going) I started this recording with the B section. And chose to end it in C. Could easily end elsewhere, and end in A minor. I don't really mind what people do with these tunes.

Here's another little tune. After a very pleasant email exchange with a French melodeon player, and with a potential swap of instruments - nothing confirmed yet, I felt a tune nagging. So here it is L'Entente Accordeonale.
The A section is supposed to be more French, the B section more English, whilst trying to stay within one style.

Here's a piece in honour of Saturday's North East Melodeon playgroup.
Ebchester Rodeo.
I'm not trying to suggest it should appear as a piece there, just a little celebration. I'll try to get along if at all possible to one of these events soon.

An old fashioned waltz for an American friend. For Martha
Works nicely on an LMM DG.

Here's fastish twister, in 3. Skipping Games. I don't know what dance genre it might fit...too fast for a waltz perhaps... any ideas? Audio to follow soon.

Here's Skipping Games. It has a short A1 section before the B section- and it might work to big up the B section as that is the bigger melody. But combinations of any sections are good by me.
Unlike 323 which was a triangle from a square, this is a square from a triangle.

Very nice, I also like your En temps by Delicq. I play it a bit too punchy,  I learned from you to hold that natural "punchiness" of a diatonic back sometimes.

Sometimes I lack punch. One man's meat...
Here's another, using some double stops in thirds in a punchier rhythm.
Canard - partly because it is a bit quacky, but also because it's not easy!

Here's another. Tried writing one in F earlier today, but just found that the chords I wanted weren't available and needed too many compromises, so - back to the usual keys.
This was written purposely for the DG, but I've included both (GC and DG) as usual. I realise there's another tune by the same name, but the name is embedded into the tune, so I can't really call it anything else.

Here's a Soundcloud version of Geordie Girl. There's also a GC version there too, both quick recordings, no editing. (You can even hear my wife washing up in the GC version - sorry).
I actually like this tune (even though nobody has looked at the music yet - oh well), but please don't judge it on my playing.

I really like the tremolo balance of your accordion. It's a nice sounding instrument, rich sounding without too heavy of a waver.

Thanks, I like the sound too.
Here's another tune - a slightly longer arrangement this time to represent the constant interplay on the bird feeders - jackdaws and sparrows mainly, but also some pigeons doing that weird turn around walk as they pick up the scraps on the floor.
This one was written on the DG box first. It does go high, but that isn't too big a deal on my box - especially as it's about birds. A third lower voice might help if you don't like the altitude.

Is there at least a nod in this direction? One of the phrase intervals, probably  coincidence.

Absolutely. The start of the second section - 1st 3 notes and chords. That was my intention.

Here's another couple of tunes, both conceived and played outside. First one is Al Fresco, 2nd is English Rose, as I'd just planted A Shropshire Lad - a David Austin climbing rose.

Here's a couple of tunes written for pairs of players. There is an A and a B section, but they are then repeated as a variation or contrechant (C and D sections) which will fit over the original sections.

Thought I'd carry on the Contrechant idea - if indeed they are contrechants rather than harmony lines. So here is a Loffet piece with an added contrechant

And here's one for Marianne too.
B section should be repeated.
