    Help to identify please

    Looks to me like a German concertina, with the wooden levers and all.

    I'm happy with Paul's solution. Don't want to be anonymous for other c.net contributors.🤗

    More prominent place for 'who's online' now, with member names and what they're doing at the moment. Also visible for non-members. I wouldn't mind if that was hidden

    Tune Of The Month, April 2014: Zelda

    Another mystery solved.... In 2006 C.net member Cream-T posted this tune, calling it 'Belgian Breakfast', but asking for the correct title. I played the tune for a while back then, and now I recognized Jim's rendition on Soundcloud. .......... Here's the abc from (my quite probably slightly flawed) memory. If someone knows the real title and composer, I'd be very grateful. Thanks! X:1 T:Belgian Breakfast - real title unknown S:Sidmouth Ethno England workshop C:unknown L:1/8 M:6/8 K:G treble % B2E B2E | cBA B2E | FGA AGF | AGF G2E|\ B2E B2E | cBA B2E | FGA FGA | FGF E3 :| EFG B,zB,| EFG CzC | EFG DzD | AGF G2F|\ EFG B,zB,| EFG CzC | EFG DzD | AGF E3:| Here's the original post.

    Mazurkas Gasconne & Lapleau

    Thanks Alan, I really enjoy your playing those french tunes! And how beautiful that slow countermelody (it that what it's called?) in Mazurka Lapleau... Leonard.
  12. Hallo Dirge, to add my contribution: The file size is determined by the settings the last time you export it. In your case that seems to be exporting from Audicity. The most important settings are the sample rate (to compare with the resolution in picture = how many pixels) and the bit rate what determines how much compression is used while making the file. The settings in Audicity are to be found in the menu under preferences. In the pop-up menu there are several tabs, but "Quality" and "File Formats" are the ones you need. They look like this: Here the default sample rate is in my case 44100 Hz (or 44.1kHz). For your Debussy piece this was set to the lowest possible value: 11025Hz Here under MP3 Export setup the bit rate is in my case set to 128 (kbps). For your Debussy piece this was set to 32. So I'd suggest you set these values as they were for your Debussy piece (sample rate 11025Hz, bit rate 32) and see if this gives the required result. Hope this visualisation clarifies.

    Diatonic Liaisons

    As a PDF download from Alex or in hard copy by post if there are any left. Roger Gawley has a point though, the book was written with diatonic button accordions in mind. Some of that (very little really) transfers to the anglo but precious little to the English. If you just love pretty music books and you're happy with the melody alone however ... Should I summon her to answer your plea? Pete. All of the information is at http://accordeonaire...c-liaisons.html Thanks.
