Hi all,
Here is my first try on the TOTM section
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NS5skeXGZYg

It's a jig (the Quilty Shore), played much slowly than usual.
Hope you'll like it.

Excellent playing and sound - and nicely illustrating the theme.  (:)

Here's my contribution. Tripping Upstairs played (moderately) slowly on the Hohner Pressed Wood D/G (via Mike Rowbotham). I didn't want to slow it right down to be a waltz but probably should have reduced the tempo a bit more. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJe2zX-OuPM

I've put theme of the month and tune of the month into one video, as they are both quite short

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTdSjpSN4E4

The first one is the slow tune. "Polly Put The Kettle On", apart from being a children's song and also found as a reel is several northern dance tune collections, seems to have an alternate existence as a Scottish-style slow air...

Then Brighton Camp, played absolutely straight except for the duff notes  :|bl

Skirmish, by Nick Barber.

I wanted to catch the development of the 'arrangement', rather the final polished product, hence the mistakes and length of the video.

Enjoy.

An excellent contribution to this theme, Ollie - just what's required imho. Nice to see and hear your new box too.  (:)

Nice playing, Ollie! The Beltuna sounds lovely too! The buckle protectors aren't doing much good like that though  ;)

@DTN & Almo - lovely playing and fab sounds, as always, both of you. Derek - Lester'll want to know which box you were playing - he's probably not the only one!  ;)

Princess Royal played as a waltz

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g00Hc3AN05s

I was making this up as I went along so please excuse the bum notes and the dodgy melodeon face  ;)

Played on my Super Pokerwork.

Ah yes. Here's The Princess Royal Waltz that I submitted for another TOTM

http://www.youtube.com/user/gungrog?blend=2&ob=5#p/u/3/Xn4quVjtxxk

and a new one: The Connaughtman's Rambles as a waltz. Originally learned from the playing of Mairtin O'Connor.

End of the month folks; time to move onto the next theme! As ever, if you've got any late postings, please continue to stick them here.

Cheers,
