Month: December 2023

Sir Sidney Smith’s March – A Tutorial

This is a fantastic tune, and’s tune of the month for December 2023. Quite tricky, so here I break it down to its individual bits, and take you through how to play it.

I’m playing it on a D/G Hohner Pokerwork, so it should work on any 2 row 8 bass box. On my melodeon, it’s a 3rd button start, the basses have the thirds taped off, and the B bass note is an octave lower than most boxes. Doesn’t matter for this tune of course.

Down in Yon Forest

It’s December, and with that it’s time to play a Christmas tune for’s theme of the month. This is the Corpus Christi carol, otherwise known as ‘Down in Yon Forest’. I believe there are other Corpus Christi carols 🙂

Played on a Castagnari Giasco I in D/G.
