Jim, Jody and Tona  -- are you guys recording in stereo?

I'm hearing more bass in one ear than the other, and it's a nice separation of the melody from accompaniment.

I am, on a Zoom H2N.

 

Where in NoVa are you? Send me your email address and I'll put you on the list for our periodic squeeze ins, held at my house in Annandale.

By the way thanks Jim for the choice of "polka de l'ase" for this month. I have fun to play it on concertina because I usually play it on a vintage accordion with three medium and a very very strong vibrato!...

 

Here is a very short sample of "french touch" with accordion, banjo, violin and cabrette (french auvergnat pipe)

 

Attached File  polka de l'ase C.net.mp3   825.63KB   16 downloads

 

I will try to find a moment to record also a couple of bourrées d'auvergne for the theme of the month "3"..

Thanks for introducing me to this tune.

 

My band The Squeezers are now working on an arrangement of this tune for English and Anglo concertina and melodeon.

Here is my playing of White Joak...  https://soundcloud.c...tina/white-joak

 

 

This is really great Jody - I like the subtle variations you bring in that never overpower the melody and the whole thing has a beautiful bounce - love it!

Adrian

Thanks Adrian, bounce is my middle name.

 

Greg, a while back you asked me a question. Sorry, I missed it. Yes, I'm playing G/D on this one.
