La Mal-Aimable

Melodeon.net tune of the month for January 2020 is this french waltz written by Jean-Christophe Lequerre. Sits quite nicely on a 2 row 8 bass instrument – in this case a Hohner Liliput conversion in G/C.

Frost and Snow

A seasonal offering for Melodeon.net’s theme of the month for December 2019 – Christmas and Winter. This is an irish hornpipe found in O’Neill’s, but quite obscure. I learned it off a bluegrass christmas album. Played in D minor on a G/C Hohner Liliput.

West End Mazurka

This fantastic mazurka was written by my good friend Chris Shaw; normally it’s played by GIG CB in a mostly fiddle led sound in D minor, but here I’m trying it on a G/C Hohner Lilliput, and it’s in A minor. Melodeon.net’s theme of the month; playing tunes by other melnet members.

Trip to Milton Keynes

I wrote this little tune yesterday. I’ve been racking my brains for a tune to play for Melodeon.net’s theme of the month for October 2018, which is transport and travel… and I can’t think of any I haven’t played yet – so I wrote one. I’m fairly confident no-one else have ever named a tune ‘Trip to Milton Keynes’ yet, and so I did. Played in C on a Hohner Lilliput in G/C.

Salmon Tails up the Water

This wonderful tune is one of the first tunes I ever learned. Very well known, but not often played (at least in sessions I go to), because it’s very well known. It’s great. Part of melodeon.net’s theme of the month for August 2018.

Traditional tune from North East England. Played on a Kay Albrecht Lilliput in G/C (so we’re in C) – it’s more commonly played (on melodeon anyway) in G.
