  1. After a year and a half of back and forth (the first video evidence I have of my attempting this song was back in November 2021) I have finally managed to finish my arrangement of the theme song to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!
     


    The key jumps around a fair bit, but the most challenging parts were in the key of A‚ô≠.

    Overall, very proud of this one. Very rewarding personally.

    Sheet music is included in post, and available here: https://musescore.com/user/37659330/scores/10749085

  2. Managed to get a semi-decent recording of Return of the Obra Dinn.
     


    I had to do a few changes from the original song, due to concertina limitations:
    * I opted for a lower Bb at the end of bar 27, as the higher octave Bb that is required does not exist on a 30 button Anglo Concertina. It sounds fine with the lower Bb here.
    * I edited the end of bar 48 as it requires a high Ab that we do not have. The lower Ab didn't sound right so this a bigger change to the original, but sounds ok.

    As always, sheet music attached, and big shout-out to the Gary Coover for his tablature system.

  3. As an extra to that, this video has the most views out of all the videos I've uploaded; almost 6k now. I have done nothing to promote it other than posting it here, so I think people are just actively looking. It's definitely a popular song from the game. My rendition of Summon the Megalodon is my second highest viewed, at 1.3k.

  4. Good morning,

    Today I'd like to share an arrangement I made of Forty-Seven Ginger-Headed Sailors by Leslie Sarony (1928). The song is a comedy song, featuring lyrics like "An old maid down in Devon, said my idea of heaven, is forty-seven ginger-headed sailors". Was introduced to it by my brother who heard it played in Jeeves and Wooster, and British comedy series from 1990 based on the Jeeves book series, and featuring High Laurie and Stephen Fry. Thought it sounded great, and I wanted to get a rendition going on the ol' squeezebox.
     


    Like always, I'll attach a copy of the music I arranged, and here is a link to the Musescore page if you prefer that: https://musescore.com/user/37659330/scores/8966315

    Have a good day, 

    Martin

  5. Hello everyone. I have a question regarding a concertina, and whether it is an anglo or hayden duet.
     

    I wanted to play The Palm Leaf Rag after I saw Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne playing for World Concertina Day on Youtube. Blown away by his playing and arrangement, I have recently attempted to transpose his playing to sheet music that I can use. I have linked the video at the bottom of this post, the song starts at 24:28.
     

    As I was looking at his fingers and bellows directions, and attempting to play the same notes as him, I noticed he has more than 30 buttons. Not a problem, I thought; I've done this dance before, I'll do my best to work around my own concertina's limitations where I can, and get it sounding very similar.
     

    As I progressed, I noticed that I was finding it difficult to get a similar sound to him, or anything that was comfortable to play. To check it was definitely an Anglo he's playing, I looked up his website (https://cohenbk.com/), and sure enough, it says he is a "masterful player of the Anglo concertina and melodeon."
     

    I decided to look more into the concertina he is using, and found this image (attached below). It looks to be the same concertina he uses in the video. I looked closer at the buttons to determine how many he had, and I think I counted 24 on the one visible side! I cannot see the other side, but unless it's got 16 or less, either he's running a 41+ button anglo concertina, or he's got something like a hayden duet or similar. EDIT: Forgot to say the dot in blue is where I'm not sure if it's a button or not. I think it is though.

    I don't know enough about concertinas at this stage to determine. Does anyone else know? Hayden Duet, or Big Ol' Anglo, or something else entirely?

  6. Good afternoon everyone,

    I started this arrangement last Friday after arriving home lightly drunk from a work outing, I managed to get the main meoldy sorted by Wednesday, and I have simply been practicing to get a perfect session of it recorded since then XD

    This afternoon, I am happy to say I got a pretty good rendition recorded, and would like to share it with you, along with the music I arranged. Hope you enjoy.

    Martin

    this is something I've wanted to play but it seemed intimidating.

     

    It's not too difficult luckily. It gets a bit hairy when it hits bar 39, with the rising tension and lots of sharps suddenly start popping up. The only bar that I could not do was bar 44, which wanted an A# harmony with the C#s. I just substituted with C#s on the harmony instead, sounds fine.

     

    I noticed in your Gilligan's Island video that you have a couple of Benchys behind on a side table. You also an avid 3D printer?
