Hi!

Wow that Bass work from 1:00 onwards...  :o That's amazing!

Those basses are great.
I'm trying to get my head around what's happening there, Thomas. Right now I can't work out what key your box is in, what key the tune is set in or what the basses are. I expect it will be obvious when I get it, but I'm not holding my breath.

Hi!

Love it!

Seconded! A really good start to the day for me.  (:)
Thirded(?). I'm very keen on French music played upon the melodeon, and Thoon injects a little Gallic feel into this piece (I think with the left hand). Anyway, it's magnifique.

Fourthed ! Love the bass - adds so much when it's so easy to overload the bottom end and so detract from the melody. Definitely an inspirational approach as I put in some time on the tune.

Playandteach : dotted rythm is in my opinion linked to the fact of playing accent on the 2nd and 4th step of the bar.
I saw what you said, and thought, nah - that isn't the difference, it's a technical control difference: basically I'm a fairly crap melodeon player, but an ok musician.
Then I tried it to see, and I have to eat humble pie. It IS a weak beat emphasis issue. I'm partly grateful. Partly annoyed. Partly embarrassed.
Great playing and great advice. Not fair.
