Poll: Tune of the Month for July 2016
« on: June 25, 2016, 12:17:59 AM »

Gosh! Half way through the year already; this month's selection of melodeon goodness from which to choose:

Runner up last month; Partie du Lancier - piano accordion version here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxZ3kHY9jCg and a recording of Philippe Bruneau here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ykuf0agQQmo [ Worth having a detour and listening to the rest of that album on the same playlist if like me you've never heard Philippe's playing before ]

Boeves Psalm; written by Lars Hollmer - plenty of piano accordion versions out there, like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CucbqI6Tv9g  but no melodeon ones (yet) mainly because of the somewhat scripted version of the bass line that people seem to follow religiously. I'm not sure how playable the bass is on a melodeon, but the treble is pretty simple and I'm sure we can come up with some alternative lines that do work. I rather like this guitar version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMCtlbJupgM

Nelly's Hat - thanks Pete; let's try this one; just got a Midi file to learn it off though; perhaps some kind soul will transcribe it to ABC if it looks like winning? Nice tune... https://app.box.com/s/mxxd9jagtlg4i2j808r1f9tyrwlk1jf0

Iron Legs - thank you once again Lester; lifted straight from his blog, comes this session classic: http://lesters-tune-a-day.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/tune-374-iron-legs.html

Here's the abc that the midi file came from, also credits the composer which Scan Tester probably didn't even know about! Chords are included.

I've just checked and I posted the abc as well as the link to the midi in the Suggestions For New Tunes thread. Do pay attention Clive old bean! ;)
