What about rusty gully?


I was listening to the definitive version at

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJR1CNpgjdc&feature=related

this morning when my wife, a lovely midwestern lady who had never heard of a melodeon as recently as two years ago, came in from the kitchen and said, "That's Derek, isn't it?"

Rusty Gully will certainly get my vote...and my wife's as well.

How's about a theme o' the month where we play a tune of our own choice on a toy melodeon? Most of us have one, don't we?......................... :||:

I do like the idea! Of those who feel the urge to do a ThOTM video, how many do/don't have access to a toy melodeon?

(I do!)

No, actually one of those 50's style "cute" white Hero boxes with the square buttons....probably worth getting it tuned, I think...

Here's a lovely, recently composed, waltz tune which I think could stand a lot of individual interpretation!

I'd like to suggest that we have a go at doing a song for totm (either theme or tune) - singing to the melodeon is a good fun thing to do - yet very rarely encountered in my experience?

This might work if we expanded it to a generic "melodeon as accompaniment" or playing with other instruments theme. I don't sing (apart from the odd chorus harmony etc.) but I do lots of song accompaniments and instrumental arrangements. Surely most of us have some friends who play another instrument and could get together and play something as a duo or larger group.

I would prefer if it didnt involve me singing as I can't sing to save my life. But I know someone who might sing in a virtual duet.

Good idea!

Again - there's more than one way this could be done - so good idea. I'm not a terribly great singer myself, but find that I often have to lead the singing in a public context. I found singing and playing melodeon not the most natural activity, but am glad that I can do so, as it really does add depth to what's available to me to play.

Just a suggestion for theme of the month. How about tunes you wouldn't expect to hear on a melodeon  ??? :|||:
