  1. I found a couple other versions of this in the same key, although they one show the first page: https://sheetmusic-free.com/hedwigs-theme-sheet-music-harry-potter/ https://www.sheetmusicdirect.com/se/ID_No/47996/Product.aspx They might give you some ideas. Just keep in mind that it's in E minor and try not to make it too "arty." Good luck!
  2. Oops, That's "playing" classical music.
  3. I've been paying classical music on anglo concertina for several years, and I've found that sheet music written for guitar works quite well since it's in roughly the same range. There are limitations of course; you can't do many bass runs because you don't have all the notes, and you don't always have the key combinations you want, but you can't let that stop you. And there's tons of material on the net, with IMSLP and free scores.com, Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, whatever. I also enjoy playing things like milongas, gatos and rancheras. Why isn't there more time? (rhetorical question, no need to reply.)
  4. This is the standard model, with all the options, an air lever instead of an air button, decorative papers, and metal buttons, as described here: https://wolvertonconcertinas.com/page/ Seller is open to offers. C'est beau, mon ami, bonne chance.
  5. Et, savez-vous, est-ce le model standard ou le model Advanced?
  6. Combien vous la vendiez? Merci
  7. What am I talking? You can play just about anything (theoretically). "One man's flat is another man's sharp." -- Anonymous

    Hi Jim, PM sent
  9. Just for the record (and not to nitpick) you could also play in F and B flat. What more could you want? Sounds like a nice 'tina!
  10. Sorry, Bob I didn't get a PM. Want to try my regular email? douknielson@comcast.net Thanks
  11. Hi Bob, Is the Clover 30 button anglo or the Tedrow baritone in Jeffries layout? And how wide is the latter, across the flats? Great photos, BTW. Thanks, Doug
  12. Thanks for the responses; I've now got a better idea of what's involved, i.e., I don't think I'll try to tackle switching back and forth (unless someone hands me a nice Wheatstone). And thanks, Ken, for the merge.
  13. Thanks, Jim It makes sense to me that switching between more different systems, i.e. Anglo and English, concertina and B/C accordion, would be easier, but I accept the fact that this ability differs widely from person to person, there being no way to predict how easily any individual might be able to do it, and that practice would increase the odds of pulling it off. Merging the two threads seems like a good idea, but I don't know how to go about it.
  14. I'd like to hear about people's experiences with playing both Jeffries and Wheatstone layouts in Anglo concertinas and switching back and forth between them, difficulties encountered, strategies for making it work, or if it's crazy to even contemplate doing it, etc. My own experience is limited, I learned on Wheatstone layout, and when I was thinking of buying a better instrument, I studied the layout charts, and swore I'd never want anything other than Wheatstone. When I bought my Edgley on eBay, it was advertised as Wheatstone, so I was pretty annoyed to find out it was actually Jeffries. I even talked to Frank about the cost of changing the reeds in the third row on the right. But once I learned to play Jeffries, I discovered I liked it a lot more. It took a while for my fingers to adapt, though. After that, I tried to play Wheatstone layout once, but gave it up quickly, for various reasons. So far, I’ve heard from Doug Anderson, who said “I spent several months trying to play both my Morse with the Wheatstone layout and my Jeffries with the Jeffries layout - both are G/D Anglos. I eventually gave up and sent the Morse to The Button Box to have the reeds changed to the Jeffries layout. I had no particular preference for one layout over the other but switching the Morse was a much more practical solution.”
