  1. YouTube video This is my review of the concertina that I recently bought from David Robertson. I hope you like it and find it interesting. If, like I was a few weeks back, you are contemplating the change from decent hybrid to this kind of instrument, this might help you make up your mind! Les
  2. Looks like one that Gear 4 Music sell. Not sure what the quality would be like.
  3. I started with a CG but wanted the lower pitched GD. I have had no problem paying the same tunes on both.
  4. Hi Roger, I would think that this piece is in A minor - the relative minor of C major. Regards Les
  5. Hi John, I'm in Rayleigh, Essex and would be happy to teach you if you can't find anyone nearer. Les
  6. Hi Dave, Good point - on my website there is a link to a performance video - this one:- https://youtu.be/O2m7iRNrUvQ Thank you for your kind comment and suggestion. Les
  7. I have posted a brand new video tutorial for this brilliant tune. You can see a clip from the tutorial here:- https://youtu.be/KRlpS0yIJV8 You get access to the full length, unlisted You Tube video, four pages of sheet music and a full set of instructional notes - all for just £10 and available instantly. I teach you how to play the famous A part that we all know plus the lesser known B and C parts. Two camera angles and slow and careful, bar-by-bar instruction will ensure that you understand exactly what to do which is perfect for the beginner or improver. Go to www.daddylongles.com/videolessons for more details. Edited as per Dave's post below Here is a performance of the tune:- https://youtu.be/O2m7iRNrUvQ

  9. Hi, This is just to let you know that I am now giving lessons on the English and anglo concertina in Rayleigh, South East Essex. I am happy to teach all beginners on these instruments as well as melodeon (DG,GC,C,ADG and GCF) and clawhammer (frailing) banjo). I am able to video your lesson or do an audio recording for you if required and you will be able to view/download these later on during the same day as the lesson. I am a very experienced teacher with over forty years experience teaching one-to-one. Please get in touch if you're interested and we can discuss times and rates. You can come weekly, fortnightly or just have a one-off lesson to see how you get on. If you are a nervous beginner just dipping your toe in the water you're very welcome to come and have a try on one of my instruments to see how you get on. Please check out my website www.daddylongles.com Many Thanks Les
  10. It's been a while since my last blog but here's my new one:- https://youtu.be/Dw9B2JGSZfg It's fairly lengthy. I play seven tunes to start with and then go on to discuss technique. I think I'm making a bit of progress at last. The tunes I play are La Marianne, Donkey Riding, Wash Day, Wooden Heart, William Brown, Fred Pigeon's No.3 and Mona's Delight - all in G on my GD. I hope you enjoy it. Best wishes Les
  11. This blog is just a quick performance of five tunes that I have been learning on my GD anglo:- Shepherd's Hey, Speed The Plough, Camptown Races, Bobby Shafto and The Keel Row - all in G. https://youtu.be/zNl4WqVx3MU Working on loads of tunes, especially for the Morris - so more to come! Best wishes Les
