Melodeon.net’s tune of the month for Dec 2019 is this classic 32 bar jig; always a favourite of mine. Here played in C on a G/C Hohner Liliput converted by Kay Albrecht.
This is melodeon.net’s tune of the month for February 2019. A 48 bar jig in G, here played a bit more slowly than I would normally for dance.
Played on a Castagnari Mory in D/G.
Very appropriately, the tune to this french anti-war song is tune of the month at melodeon.net for November 2018. Played on a Castagnari Giasco I in D/G in the key of D (in fact entirely on the D row).
This month’s tune of the month from Melodeon.net is Gilles Chabenat’s wonderful 2 time bourree, Chassepain. Here I’m playing it with the other tune commonly played with it, Baudemic (also by Gilles Chabenatt). Used to play these years ago when I played a lot of french music, but they’ve kind of dropped out of the repertoire. Nice to learn them back up again.
Played on a Castagnari Mory in D/G, in the key of D (which is what it’s typically played in sessions)
A mazurka written by Gregory Jolivet of Blowzabella, and learned from their latest album “Two Score”. Fits on melodeon really quite nicely, needing a small accidental note at the end of the B music, but that’s about it.
Melodeon.net’s theme of the month is mazurkas; this video is part of that. Played on a restored 1920’s Hohner in G/C
An old English tune which is the melodeon.net tune of the month for April 2016. Played in Eb on a Hohner Preciosa 12 bass in Bb/Eb.
