Here's my offering.

Lunardy's Ride in an Air Balloon.
This tune is from Joshua Jackson's 1798 manuscript.
when I play this I tend to find that I can't stop playing it but I have limited it here to a couple nof times through  (:)

I'm afraid it's on soundcloud, but it was that or nothing. Hope it doesn't put people off too much because it's a rather jolly little tune.
I've never heard anyone else play it so what you  hear is all mine (and Mr. Jackson's).

I am thoroughly impressed by those of you who can compose a contribution, and lovely contributions at that!

Failing that, do tractors count?

Here is a simplified version of Toon Van Mierlo's (Naragonia) 'Samen op de tractor' [Together on the Tractor] - I couldn't manage the first section in the original key, so put it all into C, which makes it less interesting. But that's the least of my problems. Tempo I think is the issue here. Anyways, constructive criticism always welcomed with open arms.

Well - I have just made it before the end of the month.  Water transport......

A pretty wee waltz called Les Gondoliers.  I first heard it played on cabrette and chromatic accordion by Flor du Zinc and learned it by ear.  Attached is the sheet music for cabrette, which has more or less the same notes!

Here is the link:   https://youtu.be/zR3EV7CfnOQ
