Just learned this tune; also known as the Breton Wedding March. Played on a Bb/Eb Preciosa
A great tune written and played by Naragonia; a 5/4 waltz commonly played in F; here played in C on a Hohner G/C melodeon.
A fellow melodeon.net user wrote this charming little mazurka, which I’ve been very happy to learn. I’m playing it here on a Bb/Eb Hohner Preciosa.

Melnet’s theme of the month for December 2011 predictably enough is Christmas tunes, so here we are with another couple of Christmas tunes. Played on a Hohner D/G Pokerwork, and double tracked (in places).
A reworking of the East Anglian polka ‘Oh Joe the Boat is Going Over’ into a french style bourree. This mostly involves changing the music to mixolydian mode and playing with a bourree style. Played on a Hohner 1930’s Club in C/F (so the tune comes out in C Mixolydian). Melodeon.net Tune of the Month for September 2011.

A lovely recently composed piece by English guitarist and melodeon player, Ian Stephenson. Played on a Hohner Preciosa in Bb/Eb.
