...The way ceilidh's have always worked in the West Highlands is that anyone who is willing and able to sing/play/dance is expected to do so. That's what makes the ceilidh a community event and ever so slightly different from an otherwis similar concert. I treat ThOTM as a sort of online Melodeon Ceilidh.


They sound a lot like the sessions I go to, here in Cornwall.

Yes....though I suspect that even in Cornwall under 8's are probably frowned upon in pubs.

Depends on the pub.

I know what you mean, though. Different cultures.

One of my favourite renditions of the Old Morpeth Rant is Aaron Horlock's Day 172 of his Tune A Day adventure, so far as I know, it's only on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aaronhorlockmusic/videos/310406656155586/ but should be publicly visible. I first became aware of the two versions of the tune from the playing of Ellisteph who posted just before me in this thread in fact! He performed the pair when this was TOTM and was probably the main influence in me feeling like these were tunes I wanted to learn, as well as how I go about playing them. Thanks Ellisteph!

Hi Gena I'm so pleased you felt inspired to learn these tunes after watching my video. You've made a great job of it; I watched your video then watched mine & wondered why I was playing so fast. Then I watched Aaron Horlock and realised that I must have played at that speed to keep up with the fiddle players at my local session. In future, however, I shall play it slower as It sounds much better. One of those tunes which it is all too easy to speed up on as you are playing. I must start using a metronome.

Thanks for posting your video Peadar. I like the sound of old squeezeboxes like yours - an echo of music from many years ago.

(There had only been 6 views when I watched the video but someone had already marked it with a 'thumbs down')  ??? If that person is a member of melnet then could they please enlighten us about what motivated this negativity?

 :M "Leac a' Li nam shealladh" :M ........Right notes in the wrong order.  :|bl :|bl Work in progress. By the time I have learnt the other 8 verses the tune might be sorted.

No&Mi  Permis de valser

Missed the deadline, as always seems to happen, but I had intended to record this, and since there’s a No&Mi discussion going on right now elsewhere on melnet, thought I would tack this here.

I learned it by ear on a G/C, but play it on a Pariselle D/G here (LM)... the air hole is so much bigger on this box that I can better manage the emergency demands for air.  I like it better in the original key though (E-flat, perhaps?)

Editing done – cut out the repeat since I have nothing interesting or even different to add. Have to work on recording quality, some day.

constructive criticism welcome.
