How I play harmonic style on the 20b - demonstration video using Brighton Camp/Girl I Left Begind Me


Recommended Posts

Hi folks! Hope this is interesting/of use!

 


I've used the well-loved tune Brighton Camp (The Girl I Left Behind Me) to show how I approach playing both melody and accompaniments in various ways on the 20b C/G anglo.

 

The video starts with me playing and then it goes on to a discussion/demo. 
 

Brighton Camp is used for a dance we do with my local side Bow Brook Border in Worcestershire, so when I’m not dancing I’ve been jamming along with melodeons/accordion/fiddle and a lot of their tunes are in G major.  Some seem to lie easily on the anglo and immediately can be accompanied whilst playing melody. Others require a bit more thought and experimentation. Interesting though!

I remembered to paste the url of the video directly into the text so you can see it embedded in the post!

This is really great and shows just how good a 20 button Anglo can be. Everyone strives for the 30+ button instrument but so much fun can be had with 20!

Makes me want to get one!
