  1. Thanks Sid. I'm going to try the box. I read that was a good idea. Right now I tend to favor my left leg. As for a new instrument, the reason I bought the rochelle was Wim Wakker told me they were coming out with a new model called the Leprechaun. Its supposed to be a mid range ($1200-sh) clone of the Clover. Plus they will give me my original full purchase price back upon trade. He said it is supposed to be out summer to fall 2015. By then after playing the rochelle for 6 months, I should be ripped.
  2. Thank you Bruce. Excellent advice. I will try to pace myself a bit. It is kind of like going to the gym after a long layoff. Its easy to overdo it at first.
  3. I just bought my first concertina. A rochelle, which I'm sure everyone is familiar with. It is a very well built, good sounding beginner instrument. My only comment would be that after playing it about 1-2 hours a day for the last few days, my shoulders are sore. I really have to muscle this thing around. I dare say I think this would be a wonderful isometric workout device that could rival the thighmaster! Perhaps this is all normal, and like most new things, this too shall pass. Either that or I'm doing it totally wrong. Or perhaps the instrument will loosen up in time. Since I have nothing to compare it to, are the higher end instruments less difficult on the pull? please advise. thank you
