Here it is, Rod!

I've left out the right-hand fingering because it is peculiar to the layout of my boxes. The bass notation is in capital letters for chords and lower case letters for fundamentals. In other words, I play the hole tune with droned chords, only bringing in fundamentals on the final note.

Thanks! I think I can probably manage without what a German friend has dubbed the "Gandalf Buttons" (Any box with more than 8 bass will now be a Gandalf box). It will take some time though.

My take for ThoTM 03/2012. In Germany it is called "Pippi Langstrumpf" and we dance it on ceilidhs as chapelloise.

Absolutely love it!  My daughters have been brought up with the Pippi Longstocking videos.  This is starting to turn them slightly more "pro melodeon".
Beautifully played too.

Seeing as I suggested this theme I had to post something eventually. Not as polished as I'd like, but I'm getting there.

"The Black Pearl" from Pirates of the Caribbean.

The first of the late entries for this theme! My excuse is that I have just taken delivery of a new laptop with a built-in webcam and video-editing software, so, for the first time, I am properly equipped for recording and uploading videos for Tune and Theme of the Month. My playing may not be up to much, but at least I am beginning to get to grips with the technology!

A couple of years ago, I was in a session in the Rugby Club at Sidmouth led by Saul Rose and Maclaine Colston. When Saul went to the bar to get some drinks, Maclaine launched into In Dreams (better known as the Hobbit Theme from Lord of the Rings) on his hammered dulcimer*, claiming that he was taking advantage of Saul's absence to play a tune that you can't play on a melodeon. Red rag to a bull or what! So I got the film score and set about producing an arrangement that would fit on my melodeon. The following is my interpretation (or should that be desecration?) of Howard Shore's beautiful tune.

* By the way, how much does a dulcimer have to drink in order to get hammered?  ::)


I'm confused ??? this is nothing like the Roy Orbison original.

Really! It should do, because that was what I was aiming to achieve. I guess I just lack his musicality.  :'(

I do hope you realise you're both talking about two completely different pieces of music? :P


Not a film theme, but a TV theme - Time Team, performed by me and my archaeology classmates on our last day.
