  1. There are many, these songs have long and interesting stories, some are imported from Spanish civil war others from Russia. Concertina is just the right instrument for us leftists to take to the woods, where to sing the songs and from where to shoot at nazis 🙂 The first shall be: Hej tovariši pod orožje vsi (Hey camerads, take your arms)
  2. Slovene folk song, very popular. Possibly suitable for total beginner- first song ever. So simple- it can't get any simpler 😄 And that's good. I've got my first student I'm teaching and this is his beginning. Lyrics: Where are those footpaths that once were there? Today only bushes grow and green grass. I will cut the bushes I will mow the grass I will make those footpaths that once were there. Footpaths are everywhere but the most beautiful footpath is the one which takes me to my mummy. PS. I forgot! I translated the lyrics in esperanto:
  3. Slovene melancholic folk song. Original: https://youtu.be/PzB5BrjjtP0
  4. Today this tune crossed my way and I knew I'd play it. I'm sorry for posting here the draft of the first day, I promise to record it after a week and I believe it will make a splash 🙂
  5. Thanks for your help. A faster tempo and oom-pah really makes it a little better. Still not master class, but I don't mind.
  6. I'm happy with the right hand and I'm fully aware something should be done with the left one. Due to my null musical education I'm stuck here in my carpenter's workshop. Can anybody help me?
  7. My version. Not as beautiful as Gary's but good enough for my needs 🙂
  8. Gary, that's very very beautiful. I'll learn this one for sure.
  9. Now, this is an enigmatic, melancholic yet beautiful tune by Vlado Kreslin- a slovene cantautor. https://genius.com/Vlado-kreslin-namesto-koga-roza-cveti-lyrics original:
  10. Another day another dance.
  11. Hello, Stephen, I play anglo. As I said, my story began last january, I bought myself on Amazon the cheapest china-made 20-buttons anglo concertina. And I immediately grasped that that was the right thing for me. It took me a week to learn Oh Susanna (both hands). And from than on it went very quickly, no lessons, nothing. Maybe someday I will look for a teacher to give me lessons, but for the moment there are so many things I'm finding every day, I need no help yet. That would also be my advise for a beginner- just squeeze it and explore. First learn to use the language, the grammar can come
  12. Don't understand me wrong. I was told about my shortcomings in a nice and friendly way. I used the word "reprimand"- I have maybe used too sharp word. Never have other people shown me hate upon hearing my concertina playing- except once. And it was funny. This year in august I played on a town square (yes sometimes I do a streetperformer) and a woman went past me and hissed hostile: "Go and find a work!" It was awkward, but someone heard her and came to me saying, that he liked my playing. We had a good laugh. The woman must have had a bad day, maybe a bad reincarnation 🙂
