have been very busy these days trying to make the money for a living and more Coincertina stuff.
So I gort aware late about this thread. Excellent !!
Thank you Al, thank you Henk and thanks to all contributior.
Up to a certain point it is a satisfaction me thjinkiong that all this is related to the thread I posted in December, "Interchanging Music, Learning, TEaching adn Making Friends". By the other hand it seems that this kind of ideas were anyway floating in the air.
However, great that this project may came to bea realityy.
Now I understand Henkm, why you could not answer to my qustion how to use the recording software. I shall find out with patience.
A pitty, that I cxannot help with the organisation and more than any with the computer stuff. It costed me about 30 - 45 minutes to read all the contributions. Imagine ! But it has been worthwhile.
Here a short resum, what I woould like to find in this new page :
1. Music perforwemd by us ourselfes at any level.
2. Encouragement to Bweginners to makje us listen their incipient playing and read there questions.
3. Tutor recording, I mean :
We have Alln's recordings
I have a Tutor Cd from Henk, which I guess he would not mind to shatre with opthers
And I mysefl I am preparing withthe help of my friend Mike Murphy, who lives in Spain some tapes, recorded at learning speed, intermedium speed and real speed.
ACtuallay a very enjoyable Polka Set, but also other Irish Music.
I got a Tutor MD from a known Player, in order to learn from his Cds.
Askinmg him, asking opthers, I risk to say that there is a chance that we might get other material.
I think to listen nice Music, performed on Concertinas, in general , we would not reallyh need thios project.
But to to know each opther better and getting to be friends and to learn from each other, this what really makes sense to me.
I think it should be even possible that somebody comes up with teh question :
I would like to leatrn to play this and this tune, who is willing to play it for and record and send to this new page, so me and others can learn it.
But nobody should get this "stuff" if not willibng to present after a certain time the results of the efforts done by the one who helps and the one whjo has asjked for.
Me individually already I am "pressing, begging" a number of persons to do this for me and I have got some results.
I have got music from Jim Lucas, when he visited me about a couple of yuears ago in Spain, an a kind of tutor tape.
Tunes he composed himself and perforemd on huis English system Concertina and after trting it ion my anglo over the rows without a real succes, no I ghave learned thanks to him, to play across the rows, and can achieve an acceptable speed and give the real character to the tune. Well from the four he has gfiven to me, I learned only one correctly up to now, but go ahead with opthers.
It has been a great experience, which I think would be very inttersting to share with other beginners or slightly advamced beginenrs. For me it has been a "key" or "cruciakl" experiebnce, opneing me the dorfrs for much more.
And weithout this help, I think It would have takem me a lot of more time to reach there. Now I start to apply this expereince on other tunes. mixing as it intersts me the over the rows push-`pull style and continuos phrasing.
I think you undertand that I s do not really want to speak abnout myself, but explain the exprerience, I think could be very valuable for others.
And I feel qyuite enthusiastic about this GREAT project.
Henk, I guess it will keep you busy !
Whats your ipinion
P.D. : I thought already to open my onw Homepage for the purpose.
Once the project comes to be reality, it should be published on the General Discussioopn Foprum, inviting people to share the experience .
THOUSAN THANKS !!
