First tunes are sort of like your first love: something you remember affectionately, maybe with a little wistful embarrassment because you really didn't know what you were doing back then.
This month's theme is simple: dig into your memory and pull out a tune from your earliest days as a concertinist. And let's hear how you play it now.
Beyond posting a recording, tell us a little about why you first learned that particular tune, what it meant for your development as a musician, what you think about it now and how your approach to the tune has changed.
Maybe it's one of the tunes that really drew you to the concertina. Maybe it's the first tune that made you feel like you actually knew what you were doing with all those buttons. Maybe it's a tune that was a fork in the road in terms of your musical interests.
It should be easier for the noobies out there in concertina land, since past and present are close relations; it may take a little more digging for those who have been playing for decades.
Let's have some fun with this theme!
