Yep, I suck at the accordion.
And what should I expect, being as I never practise the thing?
Anyway this week I just couldn’t coordinate left and right (even though the left is just an alternating bass pattern) so it’s another lame offering from me. Hey, maybe I can make this one song stretch out for the whole month.
Moonlight Densetsu: Melody. Piano Accordion. Sheet was posted last week if you want to play along.
I encourage you to just skip this and not even bother listening. It’s hardly good – I’m just putting it up to fulfill my posting quota for the month. Hey, at least Blaugust made me pull out and “practise” the accordion!
Well it’s Wheezing Wednesday, where I hoped to share with you some recordings of my very bottom-of-the-barrel accordioning.
However this past week I contracted a cold, and so feeble and weak as I am I haven’t much felt like picking up the accordion. I’ve done quite enough coughing and wheezing on my own without needing to bring an instrument into things!
I will however share with you a sheet that I have prepared. It’s a very simple version of the old Sailor Moon theme, Moonlight Densetsu. The only tricky bit is a last-minute alteration I made at the end of the bridge, with a little walk-around in the bass (bars 23 and 24). It could just be replaced with an alternating G – G7 if it’s too difficult.
Maybe we can see how I manage by next week. I can’t avoid putting up recordings for the whole month, can I?
