Re: Your first song

The first time I got up in front of someone to play a whole song was at our post Dimance Gras festivity that you should have come to. At the time, the Eunice Two Step was the one I was most comfortable with. It went ok, but I drew a blank on the turn. Luckily there were some good musicians who covered it. I was so nervous, even in front of people I knew well, I looked down the whole time. Pretty cool feeling to play with a band though.

Re: Re: Your first song

My first song on the box was Valse de 99 ans (convict waltz), from Dirk Powell's first video. See above.

Re: Re: Re: Your first song

Nonc Adam.


Re: Your first song

Point au Pin on a piano accordion, but that didn't work. Then Tit monde on a two row diatonic playing on one row.
La Port d'en Arriére was the first on a ten button box.

Re: Your first song

Madame Sosthene, and i still like to play it.

What was your first Joey?


Re: Re: Your first song

Je Passe Devant ta Porte, followed by JCD. I think it is easier that 99 year waltz.

Re: Your first song

Colinda, from Nonc Allee Young, by way of Larry MIller.

Re: Your first song

Wildwood Flower, from Big Nicks box lessons

Re: Re: Your first song

Madame Bozo...or something close to it..

Re: Re: Re: Your first song

Hey Joey! Looks like you got a top 10 so far! Ha!


Re: Re: Re: Re: Your first song

I think that my first was a shaky version of High Point Two Step from Dirk's video. My cousin and I decided to record ourselves on a little tape recorder last night. We did High Point and a couple of other songs to the tune of a case and half of Bud Light. Really good time. I just wish I could sing

Did you notice yourself getting better with each beer?

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Your first song

Ohhhhhhhhh yeah.....but that is the bad part about using a recorder...not quite the same effect the next day..lol

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Your first song

Funny, my recorder does that to me too.
