Here's a second offering played on a Dallape Club melodeon in C/F.  As you can see, this instrument is very old and needs new bellows. It's a three reed box with a switch behind the finger board to remove the low reed.

I used the reversed C on the F row which the club layout provides as I would normally use this reversal on the half row of other instruments.
I don't have the means of removing thirds on the bass so the Gm becomes an Gm7 by using an G bass and Bb chord.

I don't use the 2 accidental button in this tune. The box also has other accidentals at the end of the row.

There are so many great renditions this month!

Here is mine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOAjziAc9wY

Thought I would practice some counterpoint, and cadences. :)

Here is the MIDI if you wish to play along. Just change txt to mid.

It looks like there just might be a flurry of submissions late in the month.

Here's mine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVAMAzBw_gg

"There's jaunty, there's minor and a bass run that could be finer ..."
... well those are the words in my head as I play such a well-known tune  ;) (so I've put in each of them!)

It's also my first go with a "proper" mic to record the audio - the iphone audio recording isn't bad, but it doesn't do justice in the end. Let me know what you think of the audio quality too?

Thanks

Howard, this instrument sounds terrific and your playing is perfect to my taste. It is interesting that you play sequences of push-pull-push-pull where a regular Club player would play cross-row pull or push runs. This is nice example, IMHO, that a Club can be played in a number of ways. Thank You for the music for this morning!

My contribution for this month -

BTW the "flashing lights" are not flashing at all.  It's a strobe effect.

Rock steady rhythm. A tendency to drop the bass side when you think it won't work for you which is good thinking and adds to the tune rather than diminishing it. Again a gentle criticism if you'll allow, once or twice you needed it bit more wellie on the pull to keep the reeds going but the box is new to you so fair play.
