  3. Can you direct me to some instructions for making an origami concertina? I have looked around but only find partial ideas. I have done quite a lot of origami. Thanks
  4. I am also in the back row but on the right side, next to Jody who is wearing a hat. I am wearing a light gray striped shirt and my mouth is open.

  6. Hi David, My real name is Susan. I know I spoke with many Davids at NESI so I am sure we did.
  7. Yes, Doug from The Button Box wagged his finger at me to make the point about keeping thebellows closed. I don’t think I can forget
  8. Glad to know the Morse stay in shape well. I was really lucky to get expert advice when I was trying to make a decision to buy at NESI. Unfortunately I did leave it in the car for about two hours , Windows were down but now the bellows do seem stiffer and are a little noisy . Is there any thing I could or should do? I am playing so hopefully that will break it in
  9. So I am now the proud owner of a new R. Morse & Co. Céilí from the Button Box. I have named her Sadie. I am hoping I could get recommendations on care. Doug Barr has already advised me to do something for humidity in the winter. Not sure yet how I will accomplish it so any useful ideas are welcome. What other habits would been good to develop in order to take good care of my new love.
  10. Such a wonderful time. I am still smiling. Don’t know if it is traditional but my new Concertina has been named ‘Sadie’. Can’t thank you enough Doug for all your encouragement
  11. Thanks everyone. I have checked the resources suggested and they are quite helpful.
  12. So I have never played an instrument before. I have been renting a Rochelle for about a month. I have been practice scales and watching OAIM videos. I can "play" a few and I can tell I am making progress but maybe slowly. My questions is about learning to read standard music notation. That is how the tutor book I have proceeds but it seems much harder then abc notation. But I am not sure that will be true for the long haul. I would really like to hear folks insights on this. If I should be learning to read music , I might as well work on it. One other thing to note, it is unlikely I will be playing with anyone else.
  13. Forgot my original question in my enthusiasm. Is there a place I could find a Wheatstone layout button diagram that would show abc notation, i.e. Show where b or g are instead of B and G?
  14. Wowzer! I am a complete beginner. NO MUSICAL Experience. But I am loving Concertina. Also abc notation really helps me but I have so much to learn. It is wonderful to find folks that will help. Thank you
  15. Thank you, I am not really sure what I really want. I think a want a 30 button Anglo. But part of the reason I am going to the Squeeze In is to try out instruments. I will just be playing to entertain myself so I can do whatever I please. This is the first time I have played any instrument and I feel I belong in freereed space.
  16. Thanks Don, Unfortunately I am quite far away in far Nortern Maine. Say I probably won't be able to see them and try them out.
  17. Any chance you might be bringing these to NESI?
  18. Interested. Do you have more info and pics?
  19. Thanks. I am renting a Rochelle 30 button Anglo.
  20. What is the best way to hold the concertina? I could use real specific directions with pictures or links to watch. I want to start right and it seems I am holding it inefficiently. Any suggestions will be appreciated
