An alternative take of this month’s tune of the month at melodeon.net. This time, I’m trying it on a chinese toy melodeon, a Hero one-row in C. It doesn’t sound too shabby, but it’s rather harder work than playing it on a normal instrument!
Here’s Anahata’s great tune he wrote for melodeon.net’s write a tune theme, the Orangeville Reel, a tune written in the canadian style, and ideally suited for a one row melodeon. It also fits quite nicely on a 7 key chinese toy melodeon that I got for John and Scott (my 5 and 4 year olds) recently, so I thought I’d give it a go, and see what these little melodeons can do. Quite a lot apparently, but it’s hard work! I’ve added a piano backing via chordbot on my iphone, blanked out one of the reed banks inside the melodeon, and added (a lot) of reverb. Voila. Part of melodeon.net’s July 2012 theme of the month, play another melnet user’s tune. Sorry Anahata, but it had to be done, and I do like your version of Serpentina on a similar toy melodeon!
