Pterodactyl 2 Step / Drowsy Dragon

2 fantastic tunes written by Huw Williams (no relation!) and played as a showstopping set in the middle of Huw and Tony Williams’ gigs. Huw would lament how he’d right all these fantastic songs – he’s an outstanding songwriter, singer and guitarist – then people would come up and go ‘play the melodeon one mate’ … and this is it. Freakishly inventive and really quite tricky… talented, talented chap is old Huw. Played on a Hohner pokerwork in D/G, which you pretty much have to, because of how the accidentals work.

Melodeon.net’s theme of the month for June 2017 is ‘animals’. Didn’t say it had to be either non-extinct or non-fictional animals!

Esperanza

A schottische written by great French accordion player, Marc Perrone – melodeon.net’s tune of the month for October 2015. Played on a Hohner Pokerwork in D/G as an experiment into how much of this tune, which really needs accidentals, can be played on a simple 2 row melodeon.

The Cuckoo’s Nest

Melodeon.net’s Tune of the Month for April 2013, here played simply on a D/G Hohner Pokerwork melodeon. I play 4xA, 2xB music; no particular reason for that, other than I happen to like it.

A walk through video of how I play it should follow shortly…
