    Where is it on ebay? Can not find the link. I am interested because I want to sell my norman next year, when my Suttner is ready
  5. What Concertina is Edel Fox playing? I mean the maker of her concertina. And there are some funny things on both sides of her concertina. Why?
  6. If someone likes to try: I am selling my northumbrian 11 key smallpipe.
  7. If you are not succesful here you may ask at KLINGENTHAL whether they can build you one. They are not exensive and very kind. I play a 20 button double reed C/G with a substituted C#/Bb. Try under http://www.akkordeon-schau-manufaktur.de/
  8. I play a silvetta and it has a big sound.There are some tunes published here. Cheers Klaus
  9. Klaus, I think that when you created your "link" you filled in the blanks in the wrong order. Did you mean look here? Sorry, I was in hurry. Thanks, Jim
  10. "Songs the whalemen sang" Gale Huntington http://www.smithsonianglobalsound.org/cont...aspx?itemid=138 are songs of the sea too.
  11. No, Dirge. It ´s a note programm and abc is a only one way to use it, if you want. Otherwise not. I never did any lessons with abc, because it seems complicated. With this programm musedit you may use abc with copy and paste. You copy the abc stuff and paste it into the programm and then -real magic-- you will see notes!
  12. Try "Musedit". You can use ABC, Midi, save as graphic. It has notes, tabs and words. You can convert all the tunes for mandolin, guitar, keyboard etc. It´s really great.
  13. Brian if you know what ABC means this http://concertina.datenbrei.de/?ABC-Musik/ABC-Musikst%FCcke will help. Even in german you will find a lot of links to tune compatible for two rows. Trial and error. Easier wil be this http://home.allgaeu.org/kwenger/konzertina/ and look here http://home.allgaeu.org/kwenger/konzertina/
  14. I bought it and it was a good help to get one step further.
  15. Is it the air button? Then it is ok. You will need it.
  16. I prefer to do it in two steps. If you always do it in one step (without release) you will get lazy and you will have less controll on what you are doing. Two notes = two actions = two steps. But there are nor rules without excaptions. Cheers Klaus
  17. Thank very much, Dave. Yes, it is a wonderful cd and it is getting better & better you more often you will her it.
  18. Since days I try to go on Niall Vallely´s homepage. But it is not possible. If I remember right, I can find the sheet music of "The wrong house". Does someone else have the notes?
  19. Look at http://www.hkaudio.com/. The lucas audio system is available in different version. Very good sound. I had Marlon Klein (Dissidenten) and Ester Bertram (australian folksinger) and Manickham Yogeswaran (Tamile singer) playing at our stage (http://flensburgerfolkverein.here.de) and they brought the audiosystem with (some photos http://home.foni.net/~klaus-guhl/HierSpiel...%20Gerdsen.htm) 3 persons, some more mikros, a notebook and a guitar all over the small PA and a very clear sound in a 300 people room. This is what I would buy, also easy to carry in a small car.
  20. I don´t know what the surving players did after the war. There is still a tradtion in Franken, but they play Chemnitzer as far as I know. http://www.kbochemnitz.de/ or http://web.uni-bamberg.de/ppp/ethnomusikol...tina/K-Menu.htm even if you can not read german it will be nice to see the photos. I only know less one handful of players and they are playing their personal style. But there are some experts in Bielefeld they might know much more than I do. Look here http://www.concertina.de/ The scene seems to be dried out. Only few people playing the concertina and the prefer the different styles of global world.
  21. German history: C.F. Uhlig from Chemnitz built his first concertina in 1834. H. Band developed it 1840 and called it Bandoneon. Both instruments act like a kind of twins and started a very succesful movement, specially in the more unpolitcal parts of the working class. The succes depends on the societies and groups. There have been 16.000 players in about 500 groups in 1911. Together with flutes, violins, trumpets, drums, clarinetts and others they played marches, walzes and popular opera melodies. (Btw: Soldiers Joy is from "Zar und Zimmermann") Pure bandoneon & concertina orchesters were rare to find. They play unisono, playing in several voices was to difficult, ("neckbreaking work for players and painful for the conductor" some said) NaziTime: In the 20th the communists tried to bring bandoneon organisation on their side. But the majority of organized player tended to the liberal parts of the working class and came in conflicts at 1933 with the nazis. Several clubs were forbidden some stopped the work on their own. Then the war begann and all the orchesters ended. So it was a double problem. First: The conflict with the communist, which wanted to dominate the orchesters and sometimes they had been succesful and the conflict with the nazis, who are hunting the communist in the orchesters and infiltered the orchesters too. Between those two stones the musicans had no chance
  22. For those of us who don't have easy access to that book, can you tell us what types of concertina these folks were playing? And did the tradition survive the Nazi era and the war? It´s a long story and I will write more. First I try to send a photo from the book showing a Chemnitzer Konzertina from 1850. There were small concertina factories in Thüringen, Hamburg and Berlin, also in Munich and Augsburg. (Klingenthal and Carlsfeld) The unemployed workers played cheap secondhand instruments, that´s all what the author said. Yes, faschists stopped the movement, I will tell more later.
  23. Of course there is a german traditon. Established in the working class there a have been a lot of concertina clubs and societies. Heart of the movement was Ruhrgebiet. In the golden 20 only in Leipzig 50 concertina clubs existed and there have been about 130 in Berlin. A lot of unemployed workers joined these groups. Time for rehearsel and cheap instruments. 1911 a national organisation was founded with a own newspaper with 16.000 members in nearly 500 groups (Bandoneon & Concertina). They had there own way of notation Wäscheklammersystem it was called. All this and a lot more you can find in Christoph Wagner "Das Akkordeon oder die Erfindung der populären Musik" (There must have been early Jimi Hendrix Players, waving their instrument over the head)
  24. You can also try GDAD Tuning. I did it on my irish bouzouki and a lot of chords are very easy to play (e.c. Dmaj with one finger) and a lot of fun too.
