  2. My wife and I attended our firs slow session on Thursday night at the Redondo Beach Hennessey Pub. It was lots of fun, but our skill set is, apparently, slower than a slow session! Now we have a motivator to get our speed and settings perfect. Both our instruments seemed on the quite side in a pub setting, which was surprising. BTW, we found this group through the Meet-up Org., and there is also a Irish Language meet up immediately before the session. I'd like to cut and paste hot links to both, but seem unable to currently. New policy due to abuse?
  3. You don't know why your wife got you the circle of fifths T-shirt? What's your favorite drink? What's my favorite drink? Everything, that's why I quit.
  4. Never too late! Nice clean playing. Thank you!
  5. Hello, its been a while. My latest effort. It shows no progress, but I still hack on ward. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5EoP8Gj-wg
  6. Just checked XE Currency and the advantage is about 20%!
  7. I LOVE my Marcus, and that looks like a very good price.
  8. Hello, and welcome. I've no advice other than get the best concertina you can afford.
  9. Very nice playing indeed. And lovely photos to accompany the video. Is there a Coble on the beach in the second photo?
  10. I just got a pair as a present to my wife for our anniversary. The photos really don't do them justice. They are simply exquisite. Thank you Alex!
  11. Better late than never? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAnZhyx9b8w
  12. For your amusement, The Rights of Man. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdfeB2GopIc&feature=youtu.be
  13. Congratulations on your new anglo. Do you also play Duet? Formidable!
  14. Not a duet player, yet. But I am mighty intrigued by cords. My music knowledge is pretty meagre so to improve this I've been reading this music theory book. http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Idiots-Guide-Theory-Edition/dp/1592574378 I also got this cord wheel for the same reason. http://www.amazon.com/Chord-Wheel-Ultimate-Tool-Musicians/dp/0634021427/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1421848693&sr=1-1&keywords=cord+wheel The cost of both purchased together was about $20 from Amazon. I suspect that if you go duet you really need to be able to make your own arrangements.( Not that I have a clue.)
  15. Beautiful compostion and wonderful playing. Thank you for sharing. Btw, is that an SMLE on the wall? (Sporterized No.4?)
  16. Face to face lesson are probably the best way to learn, follwed by Skype. I really like the Online Academy of Irish Music. Free lessons and info here: http://www.oaim.ie/free-lessons/concertina I have "A Tutor for the Anglo Concertina in the Irish Style by Mick Bramich". Which is good, and has some really wonderful tunes, I much prefer "The Concertina Diaries". http://www.irishtunebook.com/the-concertina-diaries.php
  17. There was a similar thread from a few months ago. http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=17065
  18. Looks like a Chemnitzer concertina to me. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemnitzer_concertina Found an add for one for sale, its a little ways down the page. http://concertinamusic.com/classified-ads-for-sale/
  19. Hello and welcome to the forum. What make of concertina do you play? Do you folks have beginners sessions in Austin, or are you playing at full speed already? I'm hoping to travel through there in the next year or so. Where a when do the sessions run? Thanks, and again, welcome.
  20. Congratulations!! Concertinas are soooo much fun.
