  1. Hi Michael That's a question similar to "Can you tell me all you know of the meaning of life?" There are hundreds of different videos, depending on the search. There are old time players: There are videos exploring regional differences in styles: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4069771203443425133# http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8433471030914379281# Thanks Leo
  2. Hi Michael These you can save a couple of different ways, but be careful. Some of these steps cannot be reversed. http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=6747&view=findpost&p=63136 They should be in MP4 format.

  3. Hi Chris An explanation. Rather than editorialize, and change titles, and other subjective criteria, I elected to find an easy way to group the videos. To make things consistent, I take the location from the channel page of the person uploading the videos, rather than content. It does make things a little confusing, I know, but I'm open to suggestions. One of the best places for a while to find TG4 videos was from Spain, and the best places to find Boer music was Canada, but they haven't uploaded in a while. Isn't the internet a wonderfully confusing resource. If there is a video posted here by someone else, I intentionally refrain from repeating their work since it's somewhat of a redundant duplication, so thanks for adding to the list. I do appreciate it. Thanks Leo

  5. Hi Jim Here's my best guess. I don't think the first two are, but I believe the third one down is. It looks like there are two silver knobs on the top similar to the picture above, that makes me think so. I had to look at full screen to see it/them. Thanks Leo

  10. Hi Dick Surprised me. That link works for me in the US, but the archives don't. It's beyond my comprehension. Thanks Leo
  11. Yeah, the Search facility sometimes seems to be inconsistent. But I got four hits (this thread being one) with a simple search on just the word "Alcatraz". Were you careful to select "Forums" as the basis for your search? Right now (as I'm composing my reply in the editor) the drop down menu next to the Search input field gives me four choices of places to search: "Forums", "Members", "Help Files", and "Calendar". But outside the editor, when viewing a Topic, I see two additional choices -- "This topic" and "This forum", -- and "This topic" is selected by default, so I have to change that to "Forums" in order to do a real search. For all I know, there may even be more choices that become available in different sections of the Forums. I found a couple using MythBusters as one word. It's deceiving how the capital letters in their logo makes it look like two words. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILu5Ug0lPjk#t=07m10s Thanks Leo

  14. Hi Joy Truth be told, I enjoy searching for them. I especially enjoy finding the ones from members of this forum. If you see a smiley in a post, it was put up by a member I recognize, it's not a critique on my likes. But the real thanks belongs to those who put them on the internet for our enjoyment. That's where the hard work really is. If you're a member of YouTube, be sure to tell them of our appreciation. Don't tell anybody, but I've been known to take requests on occasion. Thanks Leo

  16. Hi jggunn If this is close to the version you're playing, and it were me, I would use the same finger for the repeated notes. It's not that fast. It's a song. http://sniff.numachi.com/pages/tiSANFRISC;ttSANFRISC.html I would also use an alternate fingering in some of the places or alternate notes. For instance on the first three notes, the F to F#, I would use my long finger for the F, and my ring finger for the F#, but in other spots, instead of using a D then D# on the left, I would use the Eb on the right for easier flow and position for E as the next note maybe with my long finger to get ready and use my index finger to get ready for an A next. I'd try both to see which way makes the music flow smoother. There is not a dogma that says there is correct way. It's a myth. The more things that can be put in your bag of tricks, the easier it becomes, when used at the right time. I've not used the bellows reversal, but, in listening to the Boer music from South Africa, I can see where there is a use for it to good effect. Other music, I've tried this suggestion, but I'm not very good at it: Thanks Leo
  17. Last Spring, I left my concertina sitting on the top of the piano, and didn't put it back in the box. My intention was to come back an finish playing it. Stuff got in the way, and it was almost two weeks before I got to playing it again. When I picked it up, the bellows were relaxed extended almost an inch and a half and wouldn't close without some effort. I've been more diligent at putting it back in it's case, and almost 6 months later, it still won't close completely, but it's getting close. It still plays good, but only neglect and no damage caused the problem. It's still tight. Thanks Leo

  19. Hi P.con There is a search engine that is useful for finding tunes, if you can type in a few notes. I've found it about 50% accurate for me, but I'm not that good at guessing the notes: http://www.folktunefinder.com/ Is is possible Joe's name is Sean Seán Mháire Mhicilín http://www.thesession.org/tunes/display/4457 Thanks Leo
  20. Hi P.con Is this the tune: http://www.thesession.org/tunes/display/182 Thanks Leo
  21. Hi Asher Have you found this thread yet? It has a link to sheet music and a YouTube channel that will keep you busy for a while: http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=11545 Thanks Leo
  22. Hi Tim Wakker Concertinas might have something worth a look. They are close, in Valleyford Wa. You could almost walk there. http://www.concertinaconnection.com/contact.htm http://www.wakker-concertinas.com/ I don't know of their delivery times or prices, but they are close, and have 40 button examples on their site. They are pretty. Thanks Leo
  23. Hi Tristan Would a chord chart help with the logic of an English concertina? http://www.concertina.net/wm_english_chords.html The white keys on a piano would be in the middle two columns/rows, and the accidentals (sharps/flats) are on the outside. Sheet music is written on lines and spaces. On the English concertina, the lines are on the left, and the spaces are on the right. It took me two weeks in the beginning, before I went ahah! I get it. This lady explains it very well: If you've some time, one of our members posted a nice video in 16 parts for an introduction in how they work here: http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=5648&view=findpost&p=61361 Holding with the thumbs, with support from the little/pinky finger to help in positioning the buttons is not as difficult or uncomfortable as it sounds. They're not that heavy. Mr. Wheatsone did well in his design, and it's held for over 150 years. Either choice would probably fill your needs, but the more information you have makes the choice easier. Thanks Leo
  24. Hi Tristan I played an accordion as a child, and as I got older I wanted to play a little music to help with short term memory loss. The in and out of the Anglo, like a harmonica was beyond my comprehension, and I didn't know too much of the Duet. I chose an English concertina for personal enjoyment and am happy with the choice. The logic made better sense to me. The front page of http://www.concertina.net/ is a wealth of information. Here is their page on the English: http://www.concertina.net/guide_english.html You asked the range of notes on an English concertina, and there is some useful information on http://www.concertina.com/ here: http://www.concertina.com/fingering/images/english48-W842H736.gif On the main page, there is also has information on the duet on the top menu bar http://www.concertina.info/ is another good resource. Here is picture of the layout of buttons showing the range of notes too: http://www.concertina.info/tina.faq/images/finger6.htm Thanks Leo
