Those who like Ashokan Farewell, do they know it has an unusual chord in it that could cause trouble when playing it on a squeezebox (now speaking 2-row or less)?

It is played regularly by melodeon players in sessions on D/G boxes with standard basses. It is easier if you cross the rows rather than staying on the D row for everything, and there is a need to work around the low notes if you don't have them, but it is all playable on a standard D/G with a little thought.

How about Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring by JS Bach? Fits really well on box. Not sure where to find the abcs though!
I would love to play this tune. ABC's Lester?

Al, this tune can be played quite successfully on almost any quint tuned box


Thanks I know - I was repeating an objection by somebody else, but it's a most beautiful tune, a haunting slow air, and I can not only play on the D/G box - but also on my 10 hole diatonic moothie - so it's eminently playable on just about any instrument with a little bit of jiggery-pokery  ;D

Install ABC Navigator on your PC (it's FREE) and stick the ABC in and it will play it or use the ABC Convert-A-Matic.

Suzi, I see TOTM as an opportunity to 'push my envelope' and make any such unusual chord part of my technique. OK I might have to fake it given the nature of the instrument.  I don't feel we should pick tunes that need 3 rows, but I think 1-rowers will have to fend for themselves (and very well too, so far)!

Could I be seconder forther for Ashokan Farewell please. Lovely tune ,and one I've never really had a go at.  Also it gets us away from Anglo-French and into (as our Irish friends would spell it)  ???

It's a nice tune indeed. I've never attempted to play it on the box, not for that Am chord but because I think it's nicer on the fiddle where you can do some hammer-ons and slides. But again, remember that I'm a beginner, I know you can do a lot of ornaments on the squeezebox, just that it's not in my world right now..

(Love the tune Ive had a go at it before...but not seriously..I think if it was TOTM would give me the incentive to try it again)

I really love that 'Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring'. I just converted the ABC and had a bit of a play on my C/F. This is a fantastic tune.  I was surprised with how easy it is.
Thank you. Another tune for my repertoire.  Hec.

Hi Hector - so true! I play it on the moothie - and it is surprisingly easy, as long as I can keep the breath control going.
