  1. Do you know the name of the tune? And perhaps where to find notes/abc? I should like to learn to play that one...
  2. Hi all! What does one call a short note played below the main note? Is that a cut, just as when the short note is played above the main note? Charlotte
  3. Hmm. Would it help to bring along the concertina to the bank. Perhaps I should try......
  4. Hi. I don't know if this helps but member CaptainMike posted the graphic layout of his Stagi W015-MS box. You can find it here: CaptainMike's excellent drawing. I don't know, however, if the button layout on the W015-MS is as on the W-15 LN.
  5. This thread has me mystified. Is this the equivalent of "CalvinBall" from the Calvin and Hobbes series? http://www.geocities.com/SoHo/Nook/2990/cb_rules.htm Edited: Oh, sorry. I hadn't noticed that Jim Lucas already had mentioned calvinball....
  6. Actually he's right. Remember that each carbon atom shares a bond with two other carbon atoms besides the two hydrogen, resulting in something like this: So now I'm really impressed! Especially considering the fact that the angle between the bonds are ca. 109 degrees (I think. Chemistry classes seem a little vague to me now)
  7. Just the carbon atoms? Or also the Hydrogens?
  8. In Latin American folk music it isn't girlish. I'm not aware of how folk music thrives in South America these days. My parents spent some years there in the 50's and 60's (Mostly before I was born). But they brought back some records. There was particularly one record with harp music from Paraguay that I liked. Here is s sound clip: Pajaro Campana
  9. If You are looking for freeware, then Finale Notepad is an option: http://www.finalemusic.com/notepad/
  10. Oh, he he, I certainly didn't look through that (IMVHO). And, Yes, I spoke with my parents today. Apparently You met in Stengade in Helsingør (hmm Elsinore in English?) Saturday! My dad asked when I would be able to play like You do. I had to disappoint him and say that he'd have to wait another 20-30 years....
  11. Thanks for all the suggestions and the debate! Just another question: Jim Lucas mentioned IMO and Chris Timson mentioned IMHO. ??????????. Charlotte
  12. Hi Info concerning abc can be found here: http://staffweb.cms.gre.ac.uk/~c.walshaw/abc/ Charlotte
  13. I knew Lang Linken. The others I didn't know. I have found their homepages now, and both the Haugaard & and Højrup and the Baltinget sites have some downloads. I like their music. Hmmm, it seems that I have some new CD's to buy! Thanks Jim.
  14. Ah well, my problem is that I prefer Irish, Swedish, Russian, South american tunes (among others) to Danish ones. Unfortunately I have only heard few Danish traditional tunes. It is without doubt my fault for not being enquisitive enough about my own cultural background. Unfortunately we are not good at preserving our cultural heritage here in Denmark. I sense that in in the U.K. You are much more appreciative about your cultural background than we are and I envy you that. My judgement is based on what I have been able to find on the WWW (Unfortunately I have never been to the U.K, I don't know anyone from the U.K. and I have no idea about what people in general feel about their cultural background there). It is, however, easy to find sites where you can find and buy Irish traditional music. I can't find sites where I can find danish traditional music. I have no opinion about how you feel in other countries (but I'd like to know what you think). Unfortunately, however, the few danish tunes I have heard just don't catch my imagination. It is really sad, but it is a fact... Perhaps, if I search more thoroughly I'll find some danish tunes that I'd like to learn to play. My own interest in Irish music stems, not from Riverdance, but further back. My brother shared a flat with an Irish fellow some 30 years ago. He had some records with Irish music that made my ears grow to double their normal size.... I haven't got a clue as to why I have always wanted to play the concertina. It is not exactly the best known instrument here in Denmark. Well, at least now my neighbours know how it sounds like. In fact, yesterday I found that the young woman living upstairs began to stomp rather heavely across the floor. I immediately felt guilty and decided to try to play very quietly (She is a very tiny specimen of the human race). Then it hit me... perhaps she wasn't stomping, perhaps she was dancing!!! So I gave it another go!!! Edited to correct the spelling mistakes that always seem to creep in no matter how much you try to proof-read the stuff you write And now I had to edit the edited!!!
