Chatty concertinist

Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. It seems to me that whereas the ARIETTA was designed to be played by one person this has to be played by two. Also, the spinet side has a flap to fold over the keyboard, the top folds down and then! the two parts fold together ( are those hinges I can see on the centre join? ) you tuck it under your arm and of you go to your next gig! Jake
  2. I don't know where the smiley came from! It appeared when i first posted to this thread & I had to go back to the message and edit it out. Jake
  3. Yes, of course. The more musicians we reach the better. Playing tunes may not stop any bullets but it can show support & solidarity for a beleaguered nation. Jake
  4. Good work. It was my intention to transcribe this and take it to an easy session that I run BUT you've beaten me to it. However I've gone the other way , down to Em, here's the ABC & PDF regards Jake *********************** X:1 T:Ukraine National Anthem T:"Shche ne Vmerla Ukrainy i slava, i volia" T:"Glory and Freedom of Ukraine has not yet Perished" C:Music 1863, by Mykhailo Verbytsky, (1839 - 1884); adopted in 1992.

  5. Thanks to Alan Day for the slowed down version and to David Barnert for the transcription I'm of to a flying start! Jake
  6. Hi Alan, thanks for the offer of a slowed down version, it would be most helpful. I'm always on the look out for new tunes to stretch the members of a beginners/easy session that I work with and this one is particularly restful & enchanting. Jake
  7. A few years back - 2012 actually - Alan Day introduced us to one of his compositions, "Stream to River Flows" in this thread, ... https://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?/topic/13740-stream-to-river-flows/&tab=comments#comment-132262 I wonder if anyone has the sheet music for this & is willing to share it?? Jake
  8. So!! How many concertinas do YOU see?? No 1, Right foreground No 2, on the left in front of the accordion and No 3?? just below No 2, peeping out from behind the bottom left accordion Jake
  9. Here's a couple of UK companies I came across when looking for a case for Northumbrian Pipes. Cases & Enclosures and Protective Cases You may find something to suit. Jake
  10. A Tie is indicated by a hyphen '-' and joins two notes of the same pitch. A Slur is indicated by a bracket pair ' () ' enclosing any number of notes. Both are displayed exactly the same BUT each is interpreted differently by programs that play from ABC. See here :- ABC standaard In the example given - Rights of Man - using a hyphen to join notes of different pitch is incorrect. Jake
  11. This concertina seems to have been thru this same saleroom on the 09th December 2020 here :- Auction It has 12 buttons on one end and the other end is blank!!! - a one handed 'tina!! No air button. Jake
  12. I'm using a Mac - OS Catalina, ver 10.15.7 I find the ABC editor provided by the MONTREAL SESSION TUNEBOOK very useful here :- ABC editor As you type your text into the box your tune appears below and there are options at the top of the pages to download PDF, PNG or midi. They also have a fairly extensive library of tunes. Jake
  13. If it helps ... here it is in G with a link to a U-tube rendition. Becalmed.pdf Becalmed U-tube Jake
