Happy Wanderer I really like your playing, it is so full of joy.

I think the chordal accompaniment on the second long note doesn't sound right to me.

Thank you for pointing out this mistake. At which second in the video does this specific chord play?

My box is a Weltmeister Cajun, in the key of C, with dry tuning.

Today, I uploaded more polka videos. I also included the Marine's Hymn. Why? Because it is March, the perfect month for Marching Music! :D

Dear God, thank you for helping me get, and play the Melodeon, and Harmonica. I also thank you for helping me learn to read sheet music. Amen.

Happy I didn't think the Beer Barrel would really fit on a one row but I have to congratulate you!
You used every available fold on that one row and have inspired me to give it a try.
Nice Job.  (:)

Nice Happy Wanderer!

I've just watched the 4. My favorites are the 1st and 4th. In the last (4th), very nice this repeated touch some 6 times the same note.
Congratulations. The work is very nice.  :||:

Thank you for your kind compliment!  ;D

The Helena Polka seems to be usually done on the PA and the Chemnitzer Concertina. I couldn't find any other button box versions of it on YouTube.  :||:

Nice man. Yeah, another smart also. Play songs that are rare to find another versions in videos, or are rare of inexistent with melodeon playing.
Stay cool!  (:)

Thanks! I think I did the Jenny Lind right this time (I could be wrong!) Last time I made many mistakes.   :P

Either way, I am glad you enjoyed the tunes!  ;D

I have recorded some more tunes! I have also been recording my tunes on the harmonica, but I won't put the links here, as this is a melodeon forum.

Enjoy!  ;D

Maybe you want to try some rhythmic accompaniment on the harmonica too, similar to what you do on the accordion with your left hand. (A small example, played by Mrs. Wache from Kumlau.)

That harmonica thing sounds rather difficult. I wonder how she did it?

Search for "tongue blocking". You put your lips around three holes. With your tongue you block the two on the left and play only the melody through the right hole. Rhythmically you put your tongue back, so that air flows through all three, than put your tongue back.
