Hellibore

Here’s a go at Naragonia’s schottische, Hellibore played on a G/C Van der Aa. Great schottische, written by Toon Van Mierlo – normally played in G minor, though I’m playing it in A minor here. Melodeon.net theme of the month for November 2021, tunes that start with ‘H’ of which this is a great example!

Thirty Two

Melodeon.net’s theme of the month is numbers – tunes with numbers in the name. So here’s Larry Unger’s wonderful waltz ‘Thirty Two’, which appears on his album ‘Waltz Time’ with Ginny Snowe.

I’m playing this on an 1980’s Castagnari Lilly in A/D, so the tune itself is in B minor.

Flatbush Waltz

Another tune that ‘starts with F’ – melodeon.net’s theme of the month for August 2021. This is a lovely tune written by Andy Statman, and until this month, not one that I thought fitted on melodeon – it does, but you need to play it in B minor rather than E minor.

Played on a standard D/G Hohner Pokerwork.

Played for melodeon.net’s theme of the month for August 2021, ‘Alphabet Soup – F’, on a Castagnari Giasco in D/G.
