  1. You assume correctly, this is brilliant! You really captured the spooky-carnival vibe with accompaniment that's not easy to pull off on an anglo. I'll definitely be giving your arrangement a try -- this is something I've wanted to play but it seemed intimidating.
  2. This classic was one of the first songs I wanted to play on concertina -- I guess it's the kind of music I expected a concertina to play, you know? Anyway, it took some trial and error and a few compromises to be able to go through all the key changes on an anglo (Bm>Cm>C#m>Dm) but I think it ended up being worth it. Feedback is appreciated. I know I made a couple mistakes. I'm still somewhat new at this and trying to find my own style.
  3. Great playing! And thanks for doing all the hard work transcribing -- now I don't have to finish mine 😆
  4. I've been playing with this particular tune off and on for awhile to come up with an arrangement as I'm also not aware of any existing one. I can't quite play it all the way through to the point that I'm happy with it but I think it's potentially workable. My reference was this arrangement for accordion: https://musescore.com/user/1133871/scores/4947688 and my starting point to get it to fit on a C/G anglo was to transpose from Cm to Am. This makes the chords mostly Am and Dm in the first part with some friendly C's and G's in the second part. Here's the abc notation for what I have so far. I'm certain this contains errors but I'm mostly using it like a lead sheet while I work out the fingerings.

I do still hope to polish this into an actual arrangement at some point but who knows when I'll get around to that. If anyone else does know of a completed arrangement, I would also like to know where to find it.
  5. Didn't have much time to practice but here's what I got! This was fun! (played on my Clover C/G anglo)
  6. New player here. I got a Rochelle a couple months ago and have enjoyed playing it every day since. I don't doubt the advice of others here that a nicer concertina is a huge step up but personally I'm glad I got what I did at the time because I can enjoy it now. Sure it has problems which have mostly been mentioned on this thread. My main complaint right now is like @perspiration mentioned, the inability to play softly with ease. Will I upgrade before too long? Yeah probably. But at least I have something to play with while I save my pennies. Plus with trade in options it's not a total loss.
