mthatcher61 Posted May 19, 2010 Share Posted May 19, 2010 I have been trying to work up an arrangement for "A Long December" by Counting Crows. I have also tried working on arrangements for a couple Steve Earle tunes; "The Mercenary Song" , and "Tom's Ames Prayer". The Pogues "A Pair of Brown Eyes" and "Fairy Tale of New York" seem to work too. Keep in mind these are all works in progress and maybe someday I'll have the sack to post some but I like my concertina and I like these tunes. Didn't John Lennon say,'I'm an artist. You give me a tuba, I'll get you something out of it'. I certainly dont claim to be an artist but I would like to be one I believe it's just a matter of reinterpreting a song on the concertina. The attitude used when presenting it determines whether it is art or farce. Yesterday I took a stab at "In the Mood" by Glenn Miller. Just trying to learn it by ear. I think its in Ab and it is a bear to get down on the concertina but think I got the first couple of bars and it looks like it might even be do-able but its going to take a long time and a lot of patience.
