The Last Waltz - Oldboy (2003) (Anglo Concertina, Jo Yeong-wook)

Recommended Posts

Taking inspiration from Łukasz Martynowicz who arranged a version on the Hayden duet, who in turn took inspiration from a version on the Bandoneon. Liked the sound so much that I attempted to get a version working for the Anglo Concertina.

Sadly my concertina does not have a low D, and so the initial 'Oom-pah-pah-oom-pah' sections use a higher D on the last 'oom'. If you have a lower D, can probably easily substitute it in here. This song was easier to arrange than it was to play; there are some quite unusual and difficult finger positions on the left hand. All in all, happy with the arrangement, it keeps the key and rhythm of the original.

Great rendition! I’m really surprised it fit on an Anglo - it’s impossible to play it on a Hayden smaller than 64b. Interestingly, my box also misses the „low D”, but an octave lower, so there is a rhythmic gap every time it’s supposed to be there. It sounds better this way, since it’s always in the middle of a phrase.
