    Aiobheann said that she is playing a Bb/F Crabb. (I asked her). I plan to buy it ASAP. I listened to it on Bandcamp. Wonderful!

    starting anglo concertina

    Hi, If you're mostly interested in playing Irish music on your new Anglo, I'd highly recommend joining the Online Academy of Irish Music and taking the concertina classes. There are several courses taught be 4 different concertina teachers. https://www.oaim.ie/ Have fun! Susan
  8. I searched in the topics and couldn't find what I was looking for....so I hope I'm not duplicating a question. I am playing a 30 button C/G Anglo. I am using my "ring finger" to play the C# on button #19 AND I also use that finger to play the G and G# on button #18. I'm assuming this is "OK". Just for the heck of it, I tried to play # 19 with my "pinkie finger" and just just wasn't going to happen....an thoughts? TIA

  10. I bought a copy at The Button Box. I love it! You did a great job. I especially enjoyed Jim Droney's and Darby the Driver, which you taught to us in a workshop a few years ago.

    Any Skype Teachers? Anglo

    I believe Chris "Junior" Stevens in Maine does Skype lessons. He's very good.

    Opinions Of Classes/workshops

    Thanks David, I just emailed you. When I first started playing I found your tutor and printed it out, it is very helpful. Thanks!

    That would be a dream trip for me, Lawrence. I'd love to take a class with Mary. Maybe someday. For now I have to stick with regional classes.

    Opinions Of Classes/workshops

    I really appreciate all of your comments. As of now, I have decided to do another class with Noel. I got so much out of my first class and expect to do the same this time around. For me, it was money and time well spent. At some point in the future, if time and circumstances permit I will also attend a CIAW or something similar.
