  1. Another tune from the Nicola Piovani's movie soundtrack.
  2. 2002 version of Pinocchio, composer Nicola Piovani. Movie soundtrack:
  3. Italian television miniseries 1982 on Pinocchio. The beautiful song of Geppetto- the carpenter who made / father of Pinocchio. Funnily, as I was browsing for pictures I found out that in Disney version the old carpenter played a concertina. I have no intention to watch the Disney version since there is a masterpiece of Roberto Benigni from 2002 (Benigni played the role of Pinocchio) and now after 18 years on 20 December this year another version is coming out in which Benigni plays Geppetto.
  4. Another slovene classics. A pop song from the 60's. Lyrics very beautiful, see my amatorial translation: Among sincere people it never happens that a lie prevails. While among other people it is bad to confess too much. Since the dawn of this world such and such people lived. You get to know a person when he betrays you. But until then you know little. Among sincere people all things are simple like a clear-skied day. Yet there are some who find it boring if the world is harmonious. And if you think that it's boring if there is no lie go and follow it. Oh, might I tomorrow morning wake up among sincere people.
  5. Slovene classics- pop song from its golden era- the 60's.
  6. Now my son son he plays these stupid computer games and listens the so-called music in them. This music is of course total nuisance (as they lack taste these young generations IMHO). So I undertook and made a recording to be just for a few minutes a cool dad. The little pest says I shouldn't have omitted burps. Here you can listen 10-hours version of this tragic music:
  7. OMG, I had so much fun recording this piece! 😄
  8. 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)
  9. 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: G C A7 D7 Kie estas vojetoj, kiuj staris iam G D7 G sed nun kreskas arbustoj kaj verda herbar G C A7 D7 Mi dishakos arbustojn kaj falĉos herbar G D7 G kaj mi faros vojeton, kiu staris iam G C A7 D7 Ĉie estas vojetoj, plej bela el il' G D7 G estas tiu, kiu gvidas al mia patrin'.
  10. Slovene melancholic folk song. Original: https://youtu.be/PzB5BrjjtP0
  11. 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 🙂
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. My version. Not as beautiful as Gary's but good enough for my needs 🙂
  15. Gary, that's very very beautiful. I'll learn this one for sure.
  16. 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:
  17. Another day another dance.
  18. 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 later.
  19. 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 🙂
