    "Top Ten" session tunes?

    London & Glasgow / Edinburgh are definitely not my areas of expertise - but for Cambridge, I'd look at Paul Hardy's list since he lives around there.

    "Top Ten" session tunes?

    Do you know what area(s) you are intending to visit yet ... ? Might help with making local suggestions ......
  7. Here's the layout of my 38 key C/G - quite similar to those others shown here

    Odd Tuning In A C/g Jeffries

    Thanks Adrian. I was thinking about getting that note changed to something more useful, I’ll think seriously about that A. Andrew

    Odd Tuning In A C/g Jeffries

    My Jeffries; like Adrian's; has Bb/G# on button 10 and F#/F on button 7c But this prompts me to ask - what do you have on button 1b - I have an F#/G# The pushed F# is obviously very useful .... but that pulled G# means I have two of those ( and the normal pushed one on 3a ) I'd be interested to learn what your instruments have ?
