I'm looking for a tune playable on D/G melodeon, C melodeon or (30button) C/G anglo concertina that its possible to dance the charleston to?
Particularly interested in tunes in the 'ABC' format so I can get midi and visual.

P.s. I have posted this question elsewhere but it suddenly occurred to me mudcat might be a good place to ask.

"Willafjord" or "Da Scallowa Lasses" maybe? (Syncopated Shetland reels).

Can't you just transpose the original Charleston tune into a suitable key? (It's in B flat in versions I've heard).

I'd need the ABC first...so I can use the transposer.

I don't have time to try transcribing it right now, but this is the most musically interesting free audio version I can find (complete with bizarre near-beatboxing vocalizations):

http://www.nfo.net/TUNES/Charleston-Whiteman.ogg

It's in OGG format, so quite a few player programs will be able to play it transposed down to G or up to C or D to suit what you've got.

(Another Shetland tune you could bend into that rhythm without losing it is St Anne's Reel).

Would you like me to post to you "Has any body seen my girl" ?

"St Anne's Reel"
I'll look that one up....

There's a thought trad tunes used for ballroom dances. Maybe for another thread?

I was discussing this with my mum the other day. I think you could rumba to 'courting to slow.
