Chatty concertinist

Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. Thanks so much for all the replies. At this time, I don't plan on any kind of liquidation plan . I enjoy playing all of the various instruments, just don't have enough time to do justice to any of them. I have put the dobros on hiatus until further notice. I've put two of the three ukes into purgatory and will play the Pono every now and then. Always subject to change, but for now I'll be concentrating on the guitar, mandolin and concertina. Thanks again for all your help!
  2. Currently I play Guitar, Mandolin, Dobro (square neck), Ukulele (all low G Tenor), and Anglo Concertina-none well. I've played guitar for 20+ years so it is not on the block, so to speak. Of the others, I feel I need to eliminate at least one. I don't have a special attachment to any of them. I just don't have time to devote to them all. I guess I'm an intermediate player. I've been to two of Noel Hill's "camps" and several "slow sessions" locally. As this is a concertina site, please tell me why it should be in the "keep playing it" category.Thanks a lot!
  3. Moby Dick-"A Roving" on what appears to be an EC
  4. Hello Lucy, One of the French songs you mention in your op - La Mer has several accidentals in in (C#,G# & A#) so it may not sound exactly correct on your 20 button. I have yet to find a decent version of La Vie en Rose. If you have, would you mind sharing? If you need La Mer. I can scan my version and send it to you - I have ABC'd it below the notation. I also have Moon River-it's in C-no accidentals!
  5. Yep, skip the Minstrel and go directly to the Clover or Ceilli. You won’t regret it.
  6. Better eyes than mine!
  7. "Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm 64" - sorry couldn't resist. Oh BTW, I'm 74. Crap!
  8. Personally, from what I've read in addition to having briefly played a Minstrel, I would save up for a Clover, Ceilli, or even an Edgley. You could always buy used too. The Minstrel is a good step up from a Rochelle, but you would see a big difference with the other listed ones and wouldn't feel the need to step up again for quite some time. That's my $.02
  9. I would agree. Comments such as that one would be better served in a PM.
  10. Yep, it's in C/G. Thanks, Ken.
  11. For sale is my refurbished (by Greg Jowaisas) Jones Anglo. It has new bellows, pads and valves (as needed). The button holes have been re-bushed and it was tuned to modern concert pitch. It plays easily and sounds wonderful. Selling to help fund an upgrade. Sale includes a Pelican case. Asking $1200 shipped (in the lower 48). PayPal only. Thanks for looking!
  12. In order to fund an upgrade, I’ve decided to sell my Edgley C/G hybrid. I am the second owner. It is in excellent + condition. The woods are maple and ebony. Bellows are air tight. Excellent tone and responsive and loud. Priced at $xxxx shipped in the USA. Payment through PayPal. Donation to C-net upon sale.
  13. + 1! However, if you can swing it I'd go with a Clover, Cielli, or Edgley. Those are just plain better and more user friendly. Just my $.02
