So I’m 33 years old and in my youth I have tried to play all types of instruments...guitar, bass guitar, piano, and others... nothing stuck. I never learned to read music but have a basic knowledge of tablature from my wanna be rockstar days. I’ve purchased Gary Coover’s Easy Anglo 1-2-3 and Pirate Songs for Concertina. I also bought my first 20 button concertina on eBay and have been playing around for a couple of days.
I do medieval re-enactments and LARP events where my persona is a pirate known as Dwarf Dreadbeard. I want to learn shanties and the like to perform around a campfire at our events.
My my question is...what are some other resources I can use without a knowledge of reading sheet music? Is there a website with tablature for shanties? Any and all help will be appreciated. I have attached a picture of my concertina in case that will help
