Sun Assembly

Tune of the month for October 2023 at, a traditional English tune that comes from a 1750’s tune book. It’s a march, but I’m hornpiping it a bit here.

Played on a Hohner Liliput in G/C, converted and rebuilt by Kay Albrecht.

Stoney Steps Hornpipe

Catching up on last month’s tune of the month, this is a fun little tune. I’ve reworked it slightly to make it fit on the instrument – a 3rd button start G/C Albrecht Liliput, and you’d need a full octave down to low C to make this work as written, which I don’t have, so a small phrase is played an octave up.

La Marianne

A re-run of this tune of the month from 2011. 11 years on, I wonder if I play it any differently? This time I’m on a G/C Albrecht Liliput – a gorgeous little box that excels at this sort of stuff.

Traditional french apparently, discovered (rather than written as I previously thought) by Fred Paris.

Speed the Plough Pentatonic Waltz

By my reckoning, this is the 4th time I’ve done Speed the Plough in some form or another on this channel. This time, it’s reworked as a waltz, but in a pentatonic scale, so changing the tune to avoid all uses of the 4th and 7th notes in the scale.’s theme of the month for January 2022.

Played on a Kay Albrecht Lilliput conversion in G/C.

This month’s tune of the month at, Machynlleth – a Welsh 4 part polka. Fairly straightforward to play; my biggest problem with learning this one was confusing the 2nd and 4th parts.

Played on a G/C Kay Albrecht converted Hohner Liliput.
