    So I used to hit the “new contents” buttons is there something like that now?
  4. When I was still teaching math this would have made an interesting problem. First I would have like some theoretical justifications as you have done. Then I would encourage the students to develop a system to actually measure the difference without any damage to the instruments.

    Dancing is my soul. I love it and do it daily. Seems like it should help

    I think it is some of both. I really don’t understand the beat notation and I probably need to play slower until I get it down pat.

    Help I have been playing since late September. On my own alas. I have been practicing many tunes using Gary Coovers books , abc notation,some tunes that Doug Barr gave me and OAIM . I think I am making progress BUT I am pretty sure I need to work on rhythm or cadence or whatever we want to call it. If I really know a tune I might be alright but I want to really develop a solid understanding. Any recommendations? I am trying to use a metronome . It is difficult but I will stick with it if that is the best way. This is my first instrument and I do not really read music.

    Crossing Borders

    Do you happen to have the email address of the person at US Fish and Wildlife that got back to you? I called once and the person I spoke with really did not know as much as you seem to know. I really need to get this straight because I would like to just keep the Dipper I recently got and sell my Morse. The Morse , by the way is quite nice. I just only need one.

  13. Can anyone tell me about their current experiences or if they know the specific rules for taking a wooden Concertina across the US/Canadian border? I know there is a problem with Rosewood and Ebony but I dont know about other woods or how to find out. I am about to buy an older Dipper but we dont know what wood is on it and I do have to cross the border now and again.
