La Roulante

AKA the LNB Polka, a composition of Jean Blanchard. A good melodeon tune and is played in either D or G, it seems depending on whether you’re playing a D/G or G/C box. Popular as a morris tune and morris musos call it a polka but it’s more a sort of marchy country dance sort of thing. Maybe someone can chime in and allocate it to its correct genre. I probably should have transcribed it in 2/4 but it’s easier to read like this I think.

Now you’ll have to find a recording of it to add to the database… 😎

Giving it the two four ~

😲 Oh my!?

Mark, you haven’t forsaken your English concertina for a melodeon have you? πŸ™ Bigger and louder…

No πŸ™‚

ceolachan, thanks for the vids…that band is crazy, but I loved the trio, and especially loved their progression on the arpeggios, Em D C.

Me too, and I also like the hose/socks… πŸ˜‰
