  1. Here are some recordings that I took for my girlfriend. She sends me paintings because she's an artist. You have to look for the correct picture: Duet, Chemnitzer and also two melodeon tunes. https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxmdUyzOLoE8Z0Yv7dDcc3xnDPJIPPTPP
  2. Tune of The Week: Viertüriger Excellent atmosphere in yesterday's meeting of the Heider Folkdance Group. It's a four part dance with a square formation. The first part is always changing and allows to play a funny theatre. So we had great fun! https://www.dropbox.com/s/raytjzajv4lz17x/Viert%C3%BCriger%20live.m4a?dl=0
  3. Tune of The Week My Tune of The Week is not a new one. But I have to work in the night for some days, so I need a nice tune. The tune's name is "Portsmouth" and I love to play it for hours and hours and hours. It has something that makes my soul smile. https://www.dropbox.com/s/3fiv6rvcc2e2cf4/Portsmouth.m4a?dl=0
  4. My Tune of the week: Today we had again a very good practice hour with our folk dance group in Heide. We learned a new dance: the "Alfelder Triolett". It's a very nice and lovely dance, just like the music, a 24 bar jig : https://www.dropbox.com/s/so8pnai05rz9yge/Alfelder%20Triolett.m4a?dl=0 Played on my Chemnitzer.
  5. The tune for this week is the "Sett Quadrille". It#s a very energetic dance with three steps in a bar. Two things show how powerful this dance is: The tempo is difficult to find out in the living room. The joke says play it so fast that the dancer's face turns red. Then slow down a bit. The other thing is a picture in my head when our female dance leader stands beside the group and is clapping so that they get more motivated. They need every help.. It is hard work for the musician, too, but I have a drink beside me. Seth Quadrille.mp3 Shared with Dropbox DROPBOX.COM
  6. This week 's tune: Föhringer Kreuzpolka This week a tune from the island of Föhr. It's a very funny dance. Perhaps I play it a bit too slow, but while the last dance session I played too fast and everyone who still had a rest breath was angry with me. Greetings,Jochen https://www.dropbox.com/s/exrkwdxnps8pynm/F%C3%B6hringer%20Kreuzpolka.m4a?dl=0
  7. Hi to all, thank you for your comments. The chords I will give you the next days. My system for this music is : Learn it by heart, play it on the feet, never play it the same way again. So it changes a bit. Hi Adrian, there will be songs, too. Thank you to remind me. I always love to see your family. Unfortunately I won't be on this year Concertina meeting because I run the "Sessionhaus" in Felsberg from 28.-30.4. People from all over Germany and England will come to play English folk music and from Germany and Scandinavia (www.sessionhaus.jimdo.de) The information for concertina meeting came too late. I am really sorry for that because I always love and enjoy your playing. Greetings, Jochen
  8. Hi Jake, here are the dots, unfortunately handwritten. But most of the dance groups in North Germany use mp3 for dancing. I have the possibility as live musician to learn the melodies again and put them on the dance feet. For that I have everything handwritten to stay flexible. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4hnheuxnc86i8z7/Hobelbank.pdf?dl=0 Have fun. JoRiemer
  9. Here is my "Tune of the week". The title is "The Carpenter's Bench". It was widely spread in North Germany. The dance group in Heide dances a version from the South of Lüneburger Heide, often with children but then the lyrics are forbidden. https://www.dropbox.com/s/b5urqgb5b2l6f84/Die%20Hobelbank.m4a?dl=0 I play it on a Duet Concertina. I have the feeling that it was composed for a onerow. It makes sense because the A- and D-part are composed on the correct score on push, but the B- and C- part in the "wrong" key on pull. It sounds very good on onerow then.
  10. In the last year I explored a lot of Danish and North German tunes. Wonderful music that is working in the same style as English ceilidh music. So my project is: Learning every week a new of these English, Danish or North German tunes by heart. Here is the link for the first week played on my Chemnitzer: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zyuohlagww0h3ik/Trekant%20No15-%20Den%20gamle%20Mand.m4a?dl=0
  11. My attempt for TOTM June 2015 on concertina.net. Vedder Michel is well known especially in North Germany. It's a nice and easy dance. "Vedder Michel" is this type of man that is dangerous for all young ladies. The lyrics of this dance describe all the tricks Michel knows to be a real Casanova. In my version the girl hits him on the floor in the last verse. But there exist a lot of variations. In England you find this tune as Turks' March No.1 ("Hardcore English"). https://youtu.be/Dj7nVbVNhAY And here my melodeon version:
