  1. hello. i'm not going to lie I never learnt how to play my anglo because I could never figure out what was possible, get half way through multiple songs realised I needed notes on both the push and pull and gave up. I think this song should be possible but I cannot figure it out. getting really frustrated as I cant seem to play hardly any songs on it.
  2. hello. so I've messaged Paul about the creation of a 3d printed concertina which he said would take to the end of christmas. realistically I'm looking for an duet concertina with either the macann , jefries , crane or something similar to the shape of the buttons of an ergonomic anglo. that being said he can only produce this sort of a concertina up to 30 buttons. I'm trying to come up with a layout so that I can play 5 chords with both their majors and minors. F,C,G,D,A the reason for this being that I play alot of songs that require 5 chords but as said I need both the major and minor chord eg. c major and c minor. I'm also looking for the note 1 octave below each chord for an oom pa pa my Idea was to try and create a layout that allowed me to play in any keys but due to the lack of buttons trying to come up with a layout is becoming quite difficult. I've also had the idea that the thirds of the chords could be bisonoric so that I can play eg. E on the push for a c major and Eb on the pull for a c minor. with both the root and the fith remaining unisonoric. I'm not against the idea of playing in a certain key or a few keys the reason for trying to do this is I'm looking for a duet but the asking price is crazy high for what i'd be looking for and if I wasn't a fan then I'd have a niche , expensive instrument to sell. thanks for the help
  3. hello. I am going to be buying a duet with any luck and was curious if anyone has recorded and played any accordion type tunes eg katyusha with accompaniment, game of thrones etc. I recently heard the lotr in dreams cover by someone here (sorry forgot who) and it sounded great. as I understand accordion reeded concertina's and concertina reed concertina's sound different. thanks
  4. can u send me some pics? thanks
  5. hello. im currently looking for a 8 sided duet either maccann , crane or Jeffries. needs to be 70 buttons to cover lower notes. thanks
  6. well as stupid as it sounds especially give the rarity of concertina's compared to other instruments I like the aesthetic of it. that being said if you think you'd have anything of interest to me offer away
  7. hello. i'm looking for a duet concertina with 12 sides and around 60 or more notes with some lower notes and a decent range eg. right hand starting from middle c and left being lower. not looking to spend millions. send me a message if you think you got something i'd be interested in. thanks
  8. well when I say I think I understand what a key is I think a key is what the melody line is made up of eg. if it only uses c d e f g a b then it's c major and as for the chords they don't matter too much.
  9. hey guys there are some songs which i'd love to play on concertina and I just cannot figure it out and always end up reverting back to what has been already played and trying to figure it out by ear. I own a 40 button stagi…. (unfortunately lol. oh well better than nothing) and so I have some reversals as well. but i'm really not sure how to go about it. at the moment I want to learn haul away joe and have tried transposing it (sry im not sure which key I tried it in as I think iv'e only just understood what the key of the song means) but cannot figure out the best way to play it with an oompah rhythm on the left. iv'e also tried playing other songs but have the same problem. i'd love it one of you guys can help me with this one song and also how to try and play these songs. thanks also my concertina is a cg I have started saving up for a duet about a month ago so hopefully I wont have this sort of problem for much longer but for the time being i'd appreciate your help
  10. hello everyone I'm currently looking for a duet concertina to play polkas eg. Wallace and grommit etc. on. im currently looking for a 50 button maccann or something with a similar range in that both hands have enough buttons for 1 playing the melody and 2 playing the chords on the left hand as I had a look at a 46 button and that's just over 1 octave for the first hand and so there will be notes missing for the chords on the left hand. although im looking for a maccann, im not too picky in terms of whether its a McCann, a hayden , a crane etc. and I'm hoping not to have to spend thousands and thousands. its gotten to the point where I trying to think of how I would go about making one and I just cannot figure out how to make certain parts such as reeds. my first idea was to use standard accordion reeds and hold them in place with screws at either end however that would take up a lot of space for the amount of buttons i'm looking for and then I'd have to make bellows which I have no idea how to. so yeah if you got any others which wont cost an arm and leg give a shout :) thanks guys
  11. hello. so my friend is leaving the country due to brexit. she is going to live in spain. because of the weight limit she has decided to give me her hohner coroner 3 cgf melodeon. I've been looking abouts for music and her is some stuff I like: gypsy princess joe bane haul away joe I know that the last one is a sea shanty but the other two. what would they be? barndances? thanks
