  1. Yes that is unfortunate but they do tend to hold their value. If you can scrape together the funds for an entry level instrument you shouldn't lose too much on a sale when upgrading. Sometimes generous concertina people will loan underutilized instruments if you can earn their trust and perhaps demonstrate some musical ability. If you're in Oz I could possibly assist. Reach out to your local concertina community, something nice might happen.
  2. There aren't many young people playing concertina in Australia. I'm trying to encourage more by producing videos like this one.
  3. Can anyone identify this concertina, made in Italy? I'm guessing it would have accordion reeds.
  4. Yes very lovely, both versions and yes Yuka Nakafuji's video has disappeared it seems, such a shame. Since I have Gary's tutor I learnt this tune, albeit on english, after viewing the video which is unusual as I'm more into song accompaniment with concertina. Shall continue to play it Yaka's way, the first way I've heard it even though I've since listened to the original version. But Soloduet may I suggest you slow it down just a tad, Yuka might be chuffed.
  5. Me too wow. Fantastic, really enjoyed these videos.
  6. I thought the series had finished but no, there's more. This one is a beauty, especially the pirate fellow above.
  7. Loved it, very enjoyable. I guess the bookworm has heard it a couple of times before.
  8. Number four in the series includes a parody, "The Concertina Song" by John Thompson.
  9. This is the second in a series of six concertina video concerts produced during the Covid 19 virus lockdown period in Australia during 2020.
  10. This is the first in a series of six concertina video concerts produced during the Covid 19 virus lockdown period in Australia during 2020. https://youtu.be/QVeE6O8FDC8
  11. I think you've made the right choice. For many years I had a wheatie 21 and it served me well, but now I have a superior concertina and I'm so glad.
