Due to the inclement weather here in the UK, I've just recorded this demo.
Hope you like it (Please be generous!)
Oh and Happy New Year to all

Great playing! What kind of concertina is this (duet or anglo?).
From your previous recording my Windows medium player report som "wrong codec" (whatever that is).

Left hand down a bit!

I've just checked; some trains are still running to Portsmouth, and the sun is out:

Nice one, Ralph.

Thanks for the nice words peoples. You've made a happy man very old!
It's a 56 MacCann Duet.
A little bit of double tracking occurs, and addition of guitars bouzouki and bass (maybe mandolin as well? can't remember!) just to liven it up a bit!.
Sarah. Don't know whether Navy will fit on an anglo...But hey, worth a try!

Glad you all enjoyed them

Doh!:unsure: Just looked a bit closer its got one of those dots with a like through like its bee shot through the head with an arrow. Grrrr....that's me stuck then. I'll stick to the melodeon.

Lovely playing, I hope Alan Day spots this because I would think it's a strong contender for inclusion on Duet International.

More please!

Pete :)

Do not worry Pete, Ralphie's recordings are already in and on Graham's desk.

If anyone doubts the capabilities of a Duet just closely listen to this playing. Each note is separated one from the other, No bellows hesitance, Emphasis on certain notes by bellows control. Could be an Anglo with the chunky sound of the chords.It is a Duet. Lovely playing Ralphie " That's the way to do it" (Punch)

Thanks Alan. I suppose that because I've played for Dance as well as accompanying singers, I've tried to get that Anglo bounce when I need to. Agreed it doesn't really come naturally to the Duet, and you have to keep the left hand under control (a sound thrashing often helps!).
I'm only doing these as it's too damn cold to leave the house!

And hoorah for that! :) (The playing that is, not the cold - I could do without that)

We'll have to pile snow up against the door so you can't get out and have to record some more.:ph34r:
