  1. Thanks for the link, David. Great stuff. Imagine if Chico could play the concertina the way he played the piano.
  2. Great one, Randy. Especially with NINA in Chico's bellows.
  3. Great music and great playing.
  4. Could you please describe the keyboard/notes. Thank you.
  5. Wonderful, Randy. Great performance. Thanks for posting.
  6. I suggest checking with the Concertina Connection about this. When I enquired about this possibility last April, the Troubadour was not eligible to trade in for the Peacock, only for a Wakker. The reason was that instruments can be traded in for instruments of a higher class: i.e. entry level to intermediate to traditional. The Troubadour and Peacock are/were both classed as intermediate class instruments. Whether this is the current policy I do not know.
  7. You have a missing character in the address, gjowaisas@fioptics.com
  8. I'm sorry. My mistake. I missed the irony. Thank you for clarifying.
  9. When it comes to classical guitar, open string are a relatively constant and integral part of every performance. While not in constant use on violin, viola, and cello, open strings are always used when required by the music, such as when two, three, and four part harmony is played or hinted at. David's point about the lack of "open strings" on the melophone making it more complicated is well founded. A good musical example of this that everybody has heard is the Prelude from Suite #1 for cello by J.S. Bach. Much more complicated to play on a melophone.
  10. David is correct. gjowaisas@fioptics.com
  11. Belated 40-year congratulations on the recital. Nice choice of music. I think it is great when something memorable like this from the past surfaces. A friend recently sent a 1973 newspaper photo of me playing treble viol with an early consort. It mostly show the back of my head, but it brought back memories.
  12. I this the type of situation where adding a baffle to the bass side might help a little?
  13. After reading the various responses, I thought it might be interesting know what experts (scientists) might think about activities outside the home. I couldn't find anything that was specifically about musicians, but I found the article below. It is essentially a poll of 500 + epidemiologists on what they personally expect to do in the next few months. You can see the results in an easy to read chart. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/06/08/upshot/when-epidemiologists-will-do-everyday-things-coronavirus.html
