An attempt(!) to explain how to play Andy Cutting’s tune ‘The Abbess’ on a 2 row 8 bass D/G melodeon. This is just my version of the tune of course.
2 tunes played as part of Melodeon.net’s theme of the month ‘Tunes collected by Cecil Sharp’. Not so much collected by Cecil Sharp these – they’re both well known Playford tunes – but part of his Country Dance volume, section 4, so fair game I think.
Played on a Hohner Preciosa in Bb/Eb (so these tunes are in C minor)
