    A Bizarre Concertina Gig #2

    That must have been interesting. Mr Pearson, in the second video, looks like Bill Paxton.

    Looking for a good vintage anglo concertina

    Have you visited The Button Box in Sunderland, MA, along the Connecticut river? Their concertina room has quite a selection.
  5. It was amusing, but - mostly - only when you meant it to be!
  6. Is a CD required? An mp3 album would still need releases, etc, but the costs of CD creation could be avoided.
  7. I too have had tinnitus for a long time, but so far is not debilitating. Visit https://www.tinnitustalk.com/ There are many, varied discussions there that may help you.
  8. Are you certain the button is not inside?

    streamlined ASCII TAB for Anglo

    I 'd expect any monospaced font would work.
  10. While scanning the wiki Jody mentioned, I saw a link to the American Folklore Society. On the AFS Home page I noticed a piece of folk sport - duckpin bowling. A little off topic, I suppose, but interesting to me, anyway.

    I just downloaded the collection and #1 played as expected, on a Windows Surface tablet.
  12. I searched for concertina on eBay in the Musical Instruments and Gear category. the listing above was on the last page (page 8).

    Ear training

    I have used, sparingly, I'm afraid, a program called Functional Ear Trainer. There are other Solfege progs around too. My HS Chemistry teacher used to say Hear it, Write it, Say it, Remember it.
  14. I'd be happy to give it a try on my Surface Pro 3. You may contact me at sriverpkwy AT yahoo....

    SOLD - Wheatstone 48 button Crane Duet

    If only I had $1100. You wouldn't even have to ship it.
  16. I don't normally watch "Bonanza", the popular (in its time) TV Western. I'm glad I did today. Today's episode was titled "Three Brides for Hoss"; midway through, someone is shown playing, in the TV sense, a concertina of unknown type, though said instrument had a wrist strap.

    Holmwood 56b Tenor Treble english

    That's a nice looking instrument. The piercings look like fossils.
  18. Can you move the button so that the 'peg' fits correctly? Does it stay?
  19. Someone in Bonanza's production company liked concertinas. In "First Love", a young woman plays. Not visible in this screen grab, the sides are pierced with round holes.

    I still have nightmares.

    Cowboy Concertina - New Book?

    Congrats, Gary! I really like the rope font. I'm from Arizona, I see this font regularly.
  24. Another player I like and available at portableapps.com is Media Player Classic. MPC has been around since 2006. Almost as long as vlc.
