JimLucas Posted February 13, 2016 Share Posted February 13, 2016 (edited) Why have just one thread to follow on from Tune and Theme of the Month? Those ideas are still going strong on melodeon.net, where this month's theme is (no surprise) "Love". So I thought... why not let that theme leak over here, so that we, too, can contribute a few tunes or even songs in the Valentine spirit? In fact, I'll start with the first -- and so far only -- recording of me attempting to play melodeon, which I contributed/inflicted over there. It's a tune I learned long ago from the playing of Alistair Anderson. My memory is that he said it was a 15th-century Belgian air, the title of which translates as "If Love Doesn't Bother You, Then It Doesn't Bother Me". If_Love... (on melodeon) If_Love... (on English concertina; twice just melody, then w/ droney harmonies) Meanwhile, a couple of friends in central Sweden suddenly decided to get married while I was away, so I recorded for them a traditional Swedish wedding march from Jämtland, the county in which they live: Jämtlands Brudmarsch(once through with just the melody; then one more time with improvised harmony) Would anyone else like to contribute? (If you feel like stretching a point, I suppose you could make a reference to roses or chocolate. ) Edited February 14, 2016 by JimLucas Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
