Hello there,


This is my first post and is just by way of introduction.


I bought myself a Scarlatti 30-key Anglo in June just to see if I could play an instrument. With the help of Edel Fox, on OIAM, I found I could play some tunes (or at least find my way around the buttons), and could do so enough to recognise some limitations of the Scarlatti.


Today, my Morse Céilí arrived from the great people at Accord et Musique, and what a thing of beauty it is. There is such a jump between the two that I was expecting, but wasn't sure how it would manifest itself.


Really looking forward to getting to know it.


Btw - I think this forum is great.

Good move. I made a similar jump from Rochelle to Marcus as soon as I knew I wanted to continue with the concertina.  A good instrument will motivate you to practise more and help you to play better.   Have fun.

Yes huge gap between those 2 ! (I can easily imagine lol) 

Choice of tune by Edel Fox on OIAM are very good taste I think.


Have fun !
