A tune I composed a couple of days ago. Strathaird is in Skye in the highlands of Scotland.
Accordion used is my Scandalli super 6

Added a choir from the reason library.
This tune is a good example of why biab needs a very slow beautiful piano real track.
And a choir !!

Hi Graham,

Honestly, I never was very fond of accordion music until I started listening to you. I find every song you compose and play on the accordion to be so incredibly beautiful. This is another example of your finesse and skilled touch on the instrument. What a pleasure!

And I agree with you about BIAB needed choral voices and a beautiful slow piana that's not so staccato as the ones they have.

Again, simply beautiful!

Wishing you well,

Alan

Another classic delivery from you Graham.

The melody is both simplistic and really beautiful, and you have definitely done a great job with the choir.

Very nice indeed.

Thanks Alan, I originally had played it on the keyboard using violin as the main instrument but it just seemed too artificial. I aim to get a real fiddler playing it one of these days

Wow, furry, I thoroughly enjoyed this. One word that instantly comes to mind - beautiful. The playing you did on this is stunning. It's easy to sway to and get lost in, and equally as captivating.

Great job here - thanks so much for sharing smile

Your accordion work is so fantastic! You make them sound so fantastical. I think the accordion is such an underrated instrument. It can make such wonderful sounds that I think a lot of people overlook.

Thanks for sharing this song! <3

Hello, Graham

Your accordion play is always really nice!
The tone of yours is also splendid.
You use a different accordion for each song. How many accordions are owned?
The melody lines is very pleasant and nostalgic as usual.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Graham,
beatiful track and even more beautiful, sensitive, musical touch of your fingers on the accordion. Fantastic. I think you should record accordion real tracks for BIAB, I would surely buy them :-)
