A demonstration of how I play this on banjo. This is a little rough.

Dave:  I was hoping to play some fiddle with your 'C' accordeon at Antietam but you were gone before I had a chance.  The next best thing, I guess, was playing along with your video posting.

Myron Floren (and his accordion) was a featured performer at my hometown county fair in 1966...I remember it!

Dave, I love your charming version!  Seems to sit very well on that instrument, no finger gymnastics required.  :)   Bones would indeed be perfect with it!

Thanks. Al, sorry I left so soon. I was having some health issues and thought I'd better head home before things got worse. Next year.

Aaaahhh!  Delightful, Wes!  Are those nautical bones in the background?   Canadian musicians?  What year?

Yes, French Canadian, 1929 I just looked at the description I thought it was bones but they say catagnettes. http://amicus.collectionscanada.ca/aaweb-bin/aamain/itemdisp?sessio...

The first clip that Wes shared sounds like a cross between Jenny Lind Polka and National Schottische.

....the 'B' part of the former, the 'A' part of the latter.
