  1. @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?
  2. Wonderful musical performance and lesson! Thank you for posting it.
  3. I didn't know about this beautiful recording by David. Thank you Riton for posting it!
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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):
  7. Very beautiful! You don't think about a transcription for Hayden/Wicki system? Didie
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. > Inventor: Do you know if there is a list of the different models of hayden duet concertinas made before the currently available instruments?
  12. 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
  13. Hi Joy, Thank you so much for this information! When we met a few years ago my goal was to try the Beaumont, so I didn't really notice and don't even remember that you had other instruments. Now that I'm more aware of what I'm searching about the Hayden system, I would be very interested to see and try this double reeded Bastari more accurately. So if you don't mind I will contact you on your e-mail address to talk about this possibility. All the best, Didie
  14. > Snoot: thank you! the vapors of wine are good for the concertina but it's not yet proven that the sound of the concertina is good for the wine! > Jim: Great to listen to this recording and it gives me some new ideas for the accompaniment. Do you have the sheet music for this arrangement?
  15. Hello Brian, It's great to see you playing your own instrument, even for a few seconds. Would it be possible to take a look at this instrument somewhere and hopefully try to play it?
  16. I've just uploaded a video of Tango Caliente on the Hayden duet: Please let me know if somebody have recorded this tune on the anglo or other systems. And thanks again for sharing the score!
  17. Nice to discover this very creative musician and another way to play concertina!
  18. Hi Wolf, thank you for your comment and I wanted to ask you about the link to your version but I just realized now that you had already add it here. Nice to listen to all the possibilities of interpretation with the same single tune! And I'd like to know if you are living in Germany and if you use to attend the concertina meeting there? Best, Didie
  19. It would be great! Mes amitiés to Emmanuel, he has a huge knowledge about concertina history and making process and always kindly gave me some good advice about the instrument! Didier
  20. Merci Thomas! I like this one very very much, with beautiful harmonies and more rythmic feeling. Maybe Roslin was half french! If there is a chance somedays I'd like to take a look at your custom duet and listen to Emmanuel's version as well. Did he play it on concertina or diatonic accordion?
  21. Hello Jim, This is a nice tango and I'd like to try it on the hayden duet as well. Do you know who is the composer? Didie
  22. Thank you Perspiration and David! At first it's the Danny Chapman's version which makes me want to try this tune on the duet and when I was searching about it I remember also to listen to your nice rendition along with many beautiful concertina versions on sound cloud. But I can't find the link anymore. Maybe do you remember about those recordings on sound cloud?
  23. I have heard many beautiful versions of this scottish tune played on the different types of concertina and I'd like to share this one adapted to the Hayden duet system: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVsOwYt2A7U Thanks for watching!
  24. OK Riton, et puisqu'il ne reste plus que des francophones dans ce thread envoie moi un e-mail @gmail.com pour qu'on voit quand on peut organiser ce boeuf déjà historique! Dommage que ceemonster ne soit pas aussi à Paris!
