  1. I went through the Button Box and started with a Rochelle and traded-up to a Morse Ceili. I was very pleased with it. That would be my recommendation.

    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
  10. 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
  11. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_DAJc-S66iDzOdfNxhtYkw I've been enjoying some of these videos. Does anyone know who this is? They stopped posting a few years ago. Thanks.
  12. 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.

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