    hmmm,.....once again pasting in the youtube address didn't bring up the video. What am I doing wrong?

    Videos on playing chords for English Concertina

    Here's one of the lessons from my website, it's a start on chord theory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h205bkEViEs
  5. 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.

    One for Gary Coover

    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.

    See You Later Alligator

    Thanks Aldon, Just listened to Bill & his Comets & the sax riff & worked it out. G'day Didie, I simply use a Sennheiser Mk4 condenser microphone carefully positioned so as not to let the concer overpower the vocal. The video was recorded with an ipad and the audio recorded simultaneously on the desktop using the Cooledit program. All edited with imovie on a macbook with the Cool edit mp3 dubbed into the video's muted audio. Thanks David, it's nice to know someone worries about me. No need to worry though, I've been very busy these last couple of years with work, life, health issues (nothing life threatening) and also grappling with anglo and duet concertina systems. Some videos to follow.

    See You Later Alligator

    It's been a while since I posted any videos so here's one out of the blue. I have been very busy these last couple of years so haven't been very active on Cnet although I've lurked a bit. Don't have much to say regarding things concertina, just like to play the blooming thing. So here's a video. I do a fair bit of busking with the help of my puppets, fundraising for charity, and this is one in my repertoire. The puppets are a great hook for busking. I like to play stuff that's not normally done with concertina and we were all having so much fun, got carried away and sped up a bit at the end. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QbjhQopgdU

    Lovely playing, as always.
  13. Fantastic, great to hear about this upcoming album. Shall look forward to it. I'll be seeing Kate at the end of the week (she lives just 25min away) and maybe get a little insight into what's coming. Unfortunately I'm not going to get to NFF this year Ciaran, you have a great weekend.
