  1. Let's see. I've already got a Carroll, and an extendo-cab version of Greg's case... I'll settle for a girlfriend in lieu of a new instrument.
  2. Curse you for living in California. I play both uke and concertina and am a big fan of skiffle, and all the other genres listed. On the other hand, Austin's a fantastic place to live. Just sayin'.
  3. It's not just the pictures. My whole website is down. My service provider s working on restoring it.
  4. Yeah, Wally had a case like that, and I liked it so much I made Greg make me one. I'm not sure how much extra it might cost. I'm sure Greg could tell you. It's big enough for me to fit my minidisc recorder and mic.
  5. Oh, don't get me wrong, I was terrified doing it at first. But Wally drove home the point to someone last year that you should be comfortable taking it apart. He had them take reeds out and everything. As far as I know, Wally is the only one.
  6. So beautiful... and so easy to play. Redwood veneer ends, Carroll Standard layout. More pictures up here: http://www.crusheddreams.com/roy/gallery/carroll9?page=2 http://www.carrollconcertinas.com
  7. #9 has been shipped. Due to Monday being a holiday, though, I won't probably see it until Tuesday... Hmm, I guess I can always just sleep until then.
  8. He taught by ear this year? Curses! I could use a heavy dose of that.
  9. You will get that photo essay. I'm breakinng out the big guns and getting my photographer friend to take pictures of it every way imaginable.
  10. so... very... close... to getting #9.
  11. I'm insanely jealous of your collection. It's always been my understanding that anything before 1921 is in the public domain. Hence the large collections of sheet music offered up by universities and government sites: http://scriptorium.lib.duke.edu/sheetmusic/ http://levysheetmusic.mse.jhu.edu/browse.html http://library.msstate.edu/ragtime/main.html http://ucblibraries.colorado.edu/music/smp/browse.html Most of them have a phrase like this: " To our knowledge, all of the music presented on this web site is in the public domain as it was published in the United States before 1923. However, it is the users' responsibility to determine that this is truly the case before using the materials for other than educational purposes."
  12. Well, as to that, Microsoft has a free PowerPoint Viewer available for download: http://tinyurl.com/3nend I just used it to view the presentation, and it worked just fine.
  13. A brief search turns up this sheet music: http://lcweb2.loc.gov/cocoon/ihas/loc.natl...ntactsheet.html
  14. Here are some other highlights from that wonderful website:
  15. Indeed! I've had the opportunity to play a number of Edgley's, and found them to be fast, responsive, and a pleasure to look at. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking.
  16. Joyce, could you take some pictures of your Carroll #7?? I've got #9 on order, and I need a new fix!
  17. With a Carroll on order (and fast approaching!) I can't afford your beautiful instrument, but I'd just like to say that the pictures on the website make excellent desktop backgrounds.
  18. reckon it depends on if you consider Texas part of the South or not. But I reside in Austin.
  19. Thanks so much, everyone. Here in Austin I've already started celebrating in style by readin concertina.net on company time. Wee!
  20. I had a great time at Old Pal, too. It was thrilling to meet folks in my neck of the woods who played concertina. And Mark gave an enlightening accompaniment/music theoy class that cleared up some stuff for me. I'm sad that I had to leave before getting a chance to meet Harold Harrington, though. As usual, I took some pictures while there. You can find them at http://www.crusheddreams.com/roy/gallery/oldpal
  21. Bruce, I think Mark was talking about me. In the 458 pictures I took I made a comment that I looked like The Church Lady in one of them. I'm still working on captioning all the pics, but for those curious, they can be found here: http://www.crusheddreams.com/roy/gallery/ireland The picture in question:
  22. Well, I don't have any kids, but I do have two cats. One leaves the room with great haste immediately upon hearing the concertina. The other one usually tries to get in my lap and curl up between the concertina and my stomach.
  23. I thing your first bear (goofy) is clearly Rowlf the Dog, a muppet: Specifically, he's probably a "muppet baby" version of Rowlf.
