  1. Very nice, I enjoyed that. Lovely playing by both of you.
  2. Not at all. The music company isn't worried about this sort of usage but only if someone tries to make money from the song. So don't go putting it on your next CD or Spotify.
  3. I'm not sure what you mean jg. I meant that my accompaniment was nothing special, simply melody with a bit of rhythmic chording, but that the history of the rabbit plague might be of interest. Thanks for posting the ABC file Lach. There is indeed a wealth of material on Dave Johnson's Bush Traditions website. I should clarify that the version I've sung which pretty much follows the ABC version is not what was recorded from Basil Cosgrove. It is Dave de Hugard's own version and there is copyright on this version, not held by Dave but by a music company he used to record with. Dave asked me to clarify the fact that it is not the original Cosgrove version which is why I pulled the video for editing. For better or worse it is the de Hugard version which is, as far as I know, the only one sung in Oz these days with the Cosgrove version forgotten about, except by Dave.
  4. Remarkable. The sheet music is daunting and the recording is a delight. You are an exceptional concertina player Danny, well done. Looking forward to the decent recording.
  5. The video is back online, there you go.
  6. I've just taken this video down in order to do a little editing. Hope to have it back up soon.
  7. Here's a little song that gives a glimpse into the life of a rabbit trapper during the rabbit plague in Australia. There's nothing very special about my edeophone concertina accompaniment, pretty straight forward really, but there's a little bit of history if anyone is interested.
  8. Delightful Didie. You surely must currently be one of the finest duet players on the planet.
  9. I copied the url address and simply pasted into the box, just like this:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h205bkEViEs What do you reckon Wolf?
  10. hmmm,.....once again pasting in the youtube address didn't bring up the video. What am I doing wrong?
  11. Here's one of the lessons from my website, it's a start on chord theory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h205bkEViEs
  12. Here's an unremarkable version of Tennessee Waltz on my Wheatstone McCann duet. I'm still very much a beginner on this instrument which I'm finding quite a challenge so I wouldn't dream of posting on the current duet recordings thread. Certainly have enjoyed all those recordings by some great players, something to aspire to. There have been quite a few postings of videos lately in a range of styles, it's been a treat. Just waiting for a female player to do something.
  13. A year or so ago I decided to find out what all the fuss was about and acquired an anglo concertina, a lovely bright Kensington. I haven't had the time or sometimes the energy to devote to learning but early on I was fortunate to be given a couple of Gary Coover's books and they have been a great help and inspiration. You provide a wonderful resource with all your books Gary, well done. I'm still learning of course, make lots of mistakes, don't go beyond C & G except for a little bit in D but I do enjoy playing Kenny. So here's a little song for you Gary and All, to wave the flag a bit for the anglo.
