  1. I don't know why and I didn't check official statistics but according to the posts on youtube and on this forum it seems that a large majority of concertina players are men (maybe it's different in Ireland?). It's the reason why it's nice to watch some new videos posted by women and sometimes finding another way to play the instrument like this english concertina player who is using it in a very minimalist style to accompany her poetry:
  2. Thank you! Is it your own arrangement or did you find this score somewhere?
  3. And for those who understand french or like french chanson here is the original version by Georges Brassens:
  4. Lighting failure but no musical failure. I like the groove on the five beats!
  5. Nice tune and the sound is beautiful. Your concertina sounds a little like a chinese sheng when you play the chords. Is it possible to get the sheet music?
  6. Here is my version of this "chanson" composed by french singer and poet Georges Brassens on a poem by Paul Fort:
  7. Sorry Wolf, I forgot to ask you: what is the meaning of TT? Thanks again, Didie
  8. Thank you Wolf for sharing your beautiful version. It seems that winter is slowly on his way in Germany too. When I was searching for the winter version I was also mainly inspired by this version from japanese guitarists. Globalization is not always bad: https://youtu.be/KS8GEzCX6j8
  9. Thank you Simon for sharing it! It makes me want to try it on the duet. Didie
  10. Great project! I wish I could go to Albany to attend the play but I will wait for the video...
  11. Wow, I love this one with a mix of autumn feelings and the sound of the instrument is the best!
  12. @Tona: maybe it was after I listened to your hot summer version that I began to play with the oom-pah accompaniment on this tune. Thank you for showing this different way! @Riton: to make a link with another of your threads if you are a oom-pah fan then you need such an overlap on the duet in order to make the chords on LH. Thank you for the information about the musette tunes and I'd like to play it. Can you play the accompaniment on your ukulele?
  13. Wonderful musical performance and lesson! Thank you for posting it.
  14. I didn't know about this beautiful recording by David. Thank you Riton for posting it!
  15. Hi David, thanks for posting this beautiful version and I really feel the spring spirit in your rendition. So while you ask the question you make the demonstration that the calendar could have an influence on the way that we play a tune. If somebody feels like posting an autumn version it would be great!
  16. Hi John, My first impression was that when you play the solo part at the beginning the sound of the Crabb is better but when you add the accompaniment with chords I prefer the sound of the Dipper. Can you explain what is fifth comma mean tone please? Thanks, Didie
  17. Even if I think that the first one is more in the mood of the tune I wanted to try 2 different accompaniments for the same melody on the Hayden/Wicki keyboard: a simple bass line and alternate bass and chords (Oum-Pah):
  18. Very beautiful! You don't think about a transcription for Hayden/Wicki system? Didie
  19. Thank you David and Inventor. I think that it's important to collect all this information and if possible the place where all this different instruments are now. Didie
  20. Thank You Don and Eskin. Now I understand the position and the importance of locking the orientation of the Ipad. I will try to play like that.
  21. I've got a recent iPad and would be interested to try to record something but first I have to find how to handle the iPad so that it's easy to play. If somebody use to play with this app on the iPad it could be helpful to see a picture. Thanks, Didie
  22. > Inventor: Do you know if there is a list of the different models of hayden duet concertinas made before the currently available instruments?
  23. I don't know what is convenient on the anglo but in this video I'm using 3 notes chords on the left hand. But 2 notes chords work well too and sometimes sound better on the concertina. So as Daniel said you can choose what is the most convenient and sound better between 1, 3, 5, or sometimes 7. And for the chords rythm here I'm playing 3/3/2: dotted quarter note/dotted quarter note/quarter note. Didie
