Quebec reel, composed by accordion player Adélard Thomassin.

Re: Reel Du Bonhomme

This is one of my husband’s favorites from many years ago. What a fun tune!

Re: Reel Du Bonhomme

In X:3, First part, bars 2, 5, and 6, do you mean the first phrase to come down through the B, or should it be C#?

Re: Reel Du Bonhomme

Bazza, have updated X3. You’re correct, c#’s follow the pattern better, but, the B’s does work fine to the ears as well. (For anyone looking at this after the fact, it was previously: efeB A2 … for these bars.)
