  1. i just bought one off button box, i still always looking for trades if you still interested. obviously it would be good to have upgrade duet or back up one. hayden system
  2. sorry forgot to mention the 30 button is in G/D. All guitars are ibanez, that includes my banjos and banjitars. (also many off brand) i have all pedals and what not and a few amps and stuff, but i dont know how musical you are, sooo we can get into details later i guess. But this is concertina forum and i want a duet, but not just a duet, even if its a crummy one, i want one as a back up. so i still am unsure of finger systems.
  3. I have a C-2 C/G concertina and 40 button (bushed) stagi and 30 button bushed (stagi) and of course guitars and other instruments and cash, lmk if you want to make a deal!
  4. im reading bertram levys american fiddle styles for the anglo concertina. He talks about the scale of F too for the 30 button. the keys of C/g/f/&d soooo then the question becomes, how difficult is it to play in the key of F on a 30 button C/G?
  5. absolutely correct! That's why I use musescore to transpose the notation. I have just been struggling to learn how to construct song arrangements. and the lessons give some basic info on that. Its extremely annoying that I cannot just transpose their lessons to suit my C/G. Ill look up the note chart. But I am still also struggling to fully understand. So on a comparable C/g concertina, how difficult is it to play in the key of C on a G/d instrument? Is it like playing in the key of D on a C/g?
  6. ok... this is what I'm thinking. Can I play the lower register on a G/d Anglo. All I truly need is to beable to properly play the bass clef. But Then that also will require that, It has the capability of playing in the key of C.
  7. holy crap that was useful. I'm going to look up baffles soon. I haven't decided what direction I'm going in.. but wow. I couldn't ask for a better answer
  8. well the topic is the question. but I'm also curious how the volume is on the English too. I cannot have the bass over-power the treble
  9. sorry for the double post. It just listens to the notes you play. its completely for free. gives you feedback for 30 min a day. I use musescore, then just convert the file to yousician, and it plays... relatively.... decently. I like country roads from john Denver Edit: Or would it just be advisable to play a D instrument (like one of my favorite players) to get the lower range on the bass clef?
  10. this is some information that is well worth looking into. thankyou my man
  11. yes. I am also an amature guitar player also. I really, really, appreciate you taking the time to answer my question. The answer is Yes I strongly need yousician. I strongly dislike their customer service.... strongly.... but no other company. theres more to get into than that. but its simply not worth getting into. because I love the app. and I'm a musician that has nobody to play with, except that app. ALSO direct feed back on musician timing. the thing I ran into a problem with my anglo was the clef staff. Make no mistake, my concertinas are going no where. the training wheels on the anglo taught me something no other teacher could.... even when I was taking trumpet/horn/drums in grade school. The anglo taught me the fundamentals of harmony with out a single word.... yet this is an extremely hard instrument to learn. that's the one that I'm always holds a special place in my heart.
  12. I have had professional help. which.... basically taught me... I'm wasting my money. I need information. Not someone that will sit there and help me learn key by key.... I can do that easy on my own time. These instruments are a freaking hard thing to learn. And even harder to learn how to play them. at very very very least, on a fundamental level. yousician does that. I know its just a game. but it finally forced me to switch from an anglo to a duet. I have no other option. What am I looking at getting into? I need to beable to play on yousician im looking at the elsie from buttonbox. (btw... buttonbox, they are phenomenal on so many levels) again... worth mentioning. they know what they are doing. and also own greg from here. So since I am going to use yousician as essentially a teacher. Does the elise have the capability to play MOST of the piano staff? I ran into problems with the low D on my anglo...... god that would have been useful.(on the other direction) and a couple others on various rows. The Low C on anglos, how does that coincide with a duet I'm thinking of getting? because yousician will only recognize Notes based off middle c, the true pitch. this is a sincere thankyou
  13. lol lol lol..... if that was me (and I got 10 tickets!), Id make sure everyone on this forum, had what ever concertina they desired.(only one!... well... one of each type... so three And don't worry my brothers. If I win in any future lotto. every active member on this forum will be taken care of. Man concertinas are great.But the people who choose to play them are even greater.
  14. Is there any list of concertina teachers, that teach online? ive only come across less than a handful so far. And they very well be worth their weight in gold.
  15. This advice is really helping, thankyou
