First tune I learned to play on the fiddle back at school, gut scraping (like face scraping later in life) never took  ;D

Aha! I finally get to beat **DTN**. So you think that your worst playing will be less palatable than mine eh? I've been working on Stoney Steps for a week or two now, and well, to be brutally frank progress has been slow to say the least. Sally had a birthday today and although she's a talented musician she's somewhat less then able on the fiddle that she saw for the very first time at 9am this morning. Her prowess on flute and recorder seemed to be more or less unhelpful on a wooden box with strings as it happens. (Bit of a devil though because she'd figured out her first scale in less than five minutes and strangled her way through the A part of Princess Royal in ten!  :M)

So, "I Can Play Worse Than You Can, The Duet" - wanna play?  Bring Jimbo, it should be fun. >:E

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?
 ;D
SingalongaAL

I'll go along with that.

I'd love to see a thread (or Theme of the Month) with examples of singing with melodeon. As Anahata says, it wouldn't have to be the same person doing both. I do sing with mine sometimes, but I just sort of busk some suitable chords and the odd twiddle. I tend to do it more in sessions so with any luck others will join on other instruments and I'll end up with a backing band. But for solo work, I would love to see other people's efforts, to get some ideas as to what techniques to use and how to vary the accompaniment.

I'm not offering to contribute to this, as I have yet to work out how on earth I'd create such a recording and what I'd do with it next. I know there's a thread on this, but it seems to assume that you already know the basics. In any case I think I'd find it too painful to confront my singing, playing and appearance all at once. But I do enjoy seeing some of the clips you braver types have offered to share with us, so the idea has my vote.

I think a 'collaberation' or 'duet' theme would be good.

I'll add a few more thoughts to the pile:

Duchess Dressed in Blue
LNB Polka
Lemmie Brazil's No. 2
The Nutting Girl

and for themes:

Tunes from France
Tunes you learnt over summer (which we'll almost certainly do in September, so pay attention in those workshops!)

My offering is 'Miss Betty Fitchett's Wedding' by the great Sir Jimmy Shand! An all-inclusive number, I'd say.

Clive

Is this the tune known elsewhere as Dark Girl Dressed in Blue, or something completely different?
