The Rope Waltz and The Market Rasen Quickstep
« on: April 18, 2017, 09:04:13 AM »

Two more tunes from last week's workshop played at tempo and slowly for learning:

The Market Rasen Quickstep: https://youtu.be/uO3r4YrBGYc

The Orkney Rope Waltz, with some fairly advanced melodeon wheezes at the end. I'm thinking I should do another video about playing in octaves, thirds and the rest: https://youtu.be/e9qKm-gtRbc

Have fun... Gavin

It's just a reflection on his playing style.

the buttons are the right way round treble on right bass on left. However me being a luddite when it comes to digital technology I wasn't aware that the camera/laptop was set up to do it arse upards or whatever until somebody showed me how to change the setting - but by then it was too late!
