essexgirl.mp3 The Essex Girl (by Anahata) Adapted from another tune I'd written some time before, in response to Ladydetemp's attempt to write a tune which only used five buttons on one row of a melodeon and was in jig time. All I know about Ladydetemps is that she's called Sarah and lives in Essex... Played on Hohner 1-row C melodeon
greyday.mp3 Grey Day A tune by Ladydetemps, her best effort so far by a long way. Played on Oakwood D/G, with a few variations on Sarah's chords.

Theme of the month November 2010 "favorites from your local session". For fun, and because I wanted a simple project for learning more about my newly installed Ardour based studio system, I added Anglo and English concertinas to the Oakwood D/G melodeon, and at the end a second Oakwood track with a harmony part. Mary Humphreys: English concertina; Anahata: everything else.
