  1. Edelweiß- A lovely tune for a beginner. Little input for for much satisfaction 😀
  2. I'm sorry to hear that. You see, I gave it reviewed to my friends in musical instruments workshop: https://www.melodija.si/servis ... and they told me the reeds were "single" not "double". Now I know not what to think (not having skills to open it and see for myself) I only know that the sound of this concertina is well above anything I've heard until today.
  3. Earlier this year I bought a concertina in this forum: It's a very well made fast player ... I am only selling it because I bought a far more expensive concertina. This was my first non-hybrid concertina and after playing different instruments I can tell it has an exquisite outstanding sound. State is like new. Featuring : - Stainless steel end plates - Action riveted - 6 fold leather bellows with decorative papers - Reeds Tipo A-Mano Voci Armonichie Italian made steel reeds - Wheatstone Layout - Solid box Concertina is sent from Slovenia, I am asking 1500 euros + sending costs (EU = 40€) https://photos.app.goo.gl/wEYnneN1psxvCHow9
  4. I stumbled upon this instrument and I could not resist buying and trying playing it. It has obviously never been played, the leather straps are intact. Surprisingly all reeds are still well tuned. The sound is toy-ish, but interesting. The action of the buttons is better than modern day chinese 200€ (which was my entry level choice). I love it to have had this experience and I believe it would be a nice piece for a potential collector. Possibly a first instrument for a beginner. Will sell it for 300€. https://photos.app.goo.gl/KhbWQ3AxbTRHSVMC7
  5. I believe it might recall a smile on some faces, even if one doesn't understand the language. The simple fact of multiple identical rhymes and the shere stupidity of the meaning of the song should suffice 🙂 Selják- Peasant Od krvavih žuljev kmeta- On the bloody blisters of the peasant vsak profita si obeta,- everybody wants to gain some profit, mestni človek samo šeta,- people of the cities do nothing but stroll kmet tezgari dolga leta.- while a peasant works years long. Zemla mu rodi bogato, - The soil is fertile to him on vihti svojo lopato,- he waves his shovel nič ne mara za kravato,- he doesn't favor a necktie dajte mu medaljo zlato!- give him a golden medal! Ni važnejšega človeka- Nobody is more importaint od pridelovalca mleka,- than a milk producer temu se ne oporeka- that cannot denied je tako od pamtiveka,- so it was for ages. Predno konja okomata,- Before saddling his horse ženo v postelji prešlata,- he fondles his wife in bed on ne mara celibata,- he hates celibate on je gazda, ne copata.- he is the head of the family not a handpacked husband Ni bolj hraberga soldata,- No other soldier is braver than he varuha patriarhata,- he is the guardian of the patriarchate on ne rabi avtomata,- he needs no machine polje da se prelopata.- for his field to be ploughed Škornje usrane ma od blata,- His boots have dirt on de stoji frišna solata- so that lettuce na polic supermerkata- may be bought from the shelves of a supermarket če prodati mu jo rata.- if he succedes to sell it. Ima sestro, ima brata,- He has a sister, he has a brother ker je svojmu sinu ata,- he is a father to his son višji je od Ararata,- therefore he is higher than mount Ararat prsa, jajca ima kosmata.- and his chest and his balls are hairy.
  6. Still not quite what Händel had in mind, but it's a step forward...
  7. Hello, everybody. I stumbled upon this tutorial: https://www.instructables.com/Make-Your-MIDI-Accordion/ And I had an idea which requires none construction skills, yet much more programming knowledge. My idea: why not use a much superior computer power than an Arduino- something like this: https://uedata.amazon.com/High-Tech-Place-MoreFine-M1-Finger/dp/B013MNTMYG to which two numerical keypads would be attached: https://www.amazon.com/Numeric-Jelly-Comb-Portable-Computer/dp/B01E8TTWZ2 5 buttons 3 rows should be enough for the usual button layout while the bigger ENTER button should be good enough for the "air control" button. Do we have in this community an able programmer?
  8. Bravo! No way I could ever play this on my anglo. This is only possible on a duet.
  9. Concertina or accordion? My vote goes to concertina.
  10. Last week's homework in FB Tunesdays Tuesdays group.
  11. I listened it and I like it very much. I wish I had elves like you 😮
  12. It's incredible how rich the history of this tune is. Vivaldi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7v8zxoEoA_Q&feature=emb_logo 1960-movie Alamo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njKLdjloQ9k&feature=emb_logo Ennio Morricone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmzvMK59-IU&feature=emb_logo Inglorious basterds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NslWB3glglU&feature=emb_logo
  13. Now this is a long bearded song, it goes from Vivaldi to Quentin Tarantino. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Green_Leaves_of_Summer
  14. I'm planning to upgrade and this looks a nice option. I'm only interested in wheatstone/lachenal layout. Could we meet via Zoom?
