    Newfoundland Sea Songs, ballads from Ed McCurdy, Omar Blondahl, Wilf Doyle, and Stan Rogers. Figuring out how to play my Morse Albion SN:364. The buttons keep moving around. They're not where my fingers expect. Airplanes, knots, clocks and watches, looking at stars n stuff, politics, religion, and anything not politically correct.

  1. Rest in peace Leo. I truly enjoyed your postings.

  2. For those who may visit this page in the future, a note. Leo passed on the same day he last visited C.net, 2 May 2012. He was a prolific contributor (number 10 on the list of members by number of posts), especially of links to concertina videos. We miss his humor and friendship.

  3. Rest in peace, Leo.

  5. Erm. Yep! sounds like bitter experience Been there. Around Christmas time last, my computer crashed and it was not repairable. There is a backup of the data, but I don't have access to it. Severely put a crimp in my playing. Thanks Leo
  6. Hi Andy I've used lots of hole punches of the hammer and anvil type for various projects. Some of them up to an inch in diameter were my grandfathers, and I'm over 60. I've never resharpened them. When I was young I was taught to use the end grain of a piece of wood, like a 2x4 as the anvil so the punch cuts completely through the material, and mostly closes up for the next hole. Definitely something that won't damage or dull the punch.Works for me. Thanks Leo
  7. Hi Michelle Have you ever came across this version? (track 4)? I couldn't find anything else. Maybe some else has a copy. http://folkyourself.blogspot.com/2007/06/dick-miles-cheating-tide-england-1984.html Or http://abcnotation.com/tunePage?a=www.johnlayton.co.uk/Big.zip/Big/09984 Or even this one http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=7837&view=findpost&p=93743 Thanks Leo
  8. Hi Chris Glad you found it. I think it's a good find. Thanks. I'll bet there's lots I miss, and a lot I don't search for, like personal names or band names. I really don't have any favorite heroes to search for. From the date stamp on the video, I'll bet it was put up on YouTube after I made my post. Would I have found it for next week? It's hard to say. I have found, sometimes, it takes as much as 48 hours for the Google and/or YouTube indexing system to show up on my computer in a search. It actually showed up Saturday evening here in Western PA, USA. It's weird in that it's no
