  1. Hi Michael Are you thinking of his Stagi repair essay? http://hmi.homewood.net/adjuster/'>http://hmi.homewood.net/adjuster/ I can't think of making screws from scratch, although there are two videos of his spring making and tool. http://hmi.homewood.net/ Thanks Leo
  2. Hi Juliette Welcome back posting. Haven't seen you here in a year. I like the addition of singing. It sounds nice. Look forward to more. Thanks Leo

  4. Hi Dick Very nice. Would have liked to hear the dog commentary. Thanks Leo
  5. Hi Dick OOPS! Yeah, that creeps in like that occasionally. It came from the home page of the person uploading the videos, not the description. YouTube, at least on this side of the pond, redid their layout within the last week, and the country of origin is not specifically spelled out. It looks something like a two letter postal type code. That one is listed as GB. The sort really has nothing to do with content. But then again, isn't Northern Ireland part of "Great Britain"? Here's my geography lesson: I fixed that. I live in the Township of Brighton. There is London Ontario, Paris Texas, Rome New York. Frankfurt Kentucky, Athens Georgia, Vienna Ohio, Moscow Idaho, and probably lots more. Gotta love geography. Peace Bro!! Thanks Leo

  7. Hi Marcus Try a word search on Boeremusiek. It should find a few resources, like this: http://www.boeremusiek.org.za/English/E_main_page.htm Not all of it is in English, but it's good information. Then combine the search with tutor, tuition, or anything else that comes to mind. Sorry, I don't speak the laguage, but, it's a start. Thanks Leo

    They're in the US
  16. Hi Juan Lots of music on a concertina from Bolivia. But there's not an Anglo in sight. Your Wheatstone should fit right in. They generally look like this: Waldo Trujillo is the musician, and I've come across quite a few other videos from there. Most of which are posted as I found them. Nice music. Thanks Leo

  18. eh eh... Concertina-addicted you are! Hi Nisse You have no idea. Wait until you want get your second concertina and third and...... http://www.idw.at/concertina/ Thanks Leo
  19. Hi Nisse That's why I picked three different styles of playing on theree different instruments for clarification. All three are really good concertina players, and members here. The English one is Danny Chapman (Ratface here). Try these. They're the best I can come up with on short notice. El Cóndor Pasa (Concertina) コンドルは飛んでいく コンサーティナ Yann Tiersen La Valse d'Amélie (English Concertina) アメリのワルツ コンサーティナ La vie en rose (Concertina & Guitar) Jan på concertina Dipper G/D Anglo Concertina - Oh Suzanna (You could play your harmonica with a concertina too.) I'm really not familiar with Piaf, but I did find one of her songs I recognized. All three of the instruments within their own limitations can play the music you suggested. There really isn't directly one made for one kind of music, but maybe an English would suit better than an Anglo. Here's a note layout for a standard 48 button English. Mine only has 37 buttons, with the other notes missing from the top. I don't miss them since the music I play doesn't use them, and it was lots more expensive when I bought it: http://www.concertina.info/tina.faq/images/finger6.htm Thanks Leo
  20. Which Queen Stephen? After all, Burns used it in this wee poem, which was published back in 1791! Johnie Lad, Cock Up Your Beaver Mind you, when we consider what the word Beaver is a nickname for, in the U.S.A., I can't imagine folks over there being too keen to use Burns expression in public! Cheers, Dick Hi Dick Not a big deal considering where I live: http://www.gribblenation.com/papics/keystone/beaver-kerr.jpg I have heard this tune supposedly about the town at a history reenactment more than once or twice, although how they mixed up a hat with an indian is beyond me. Gotta love Burns: http://abcnotation.com/tunePage?a=trillian.mit.edu/~jc/music/abc/Scotland/air/CockUpYourBeaver2_G/0000 I will admit, though, searching in Google does produce some interesting results. Who was that guy that said "....separated by a common language." Thanks Leo
  21. Hi Nisse I suspected as much and frustration isn't necessary. I couldn't make any sense of a harmonica when I tried it, it was beyond my comprehension, so I chose an English which made better sense to me. Different logic and layout. As far as videos, I've found as much as anybody, and there are plenty. What exactly are you looking for? It's not necessarily the instrument, the person pushing the buttons can get a lot out of a concertina. Here's one playing two different instruments; an Anglo, and a Duet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpVOOmmQA5Q&fmt=18 An Anglo concertina: An English concertina: On each of the channels, click on their name for lots more. Thanks Leo
  22. Hi Nisse Would a 20 button C/G instrument have all the notes for the type of music you wish to play? If not, then a 30 button Anglo, or an English would be needed for the extra sharps and flats. On this diagram of the standard Wheatstone layout, the bottom two rows are the same notes as a 20 button instrument. The top rows contain the additional needed sharps and flats. http://www.concertinaconnection.com/rochelle%20lay%20out.htm Thanks Leo
  23. Hi Geoff Patience, tenacity, persisence in the unrelenting search for the elusive hidden concertina videos. Plus the judicious use of the secret search term "concertina" in the world of the magical search engine Google.com, based in the US. It starts with something like this and it's self updating automatically all by itself without help: http://www.google.com/#q=%22concertina%22&num=100&hl=en&safe=off&tbo=s&tbs=vid:1,sbd:1,qdr:w&ei=ZHy-S6v0AsGqlAfp6uH2Bg&sa=X&oi=tool&resnum=5&ct=tlink&ved=0CDMQpwU&fp=b93a0d9d32199aa3 In a pinch, I've used Google.co.Uk and others, and they all produce different results. Then the copy/paste commands to make a list in Notepad, sorted by first found country, and compatible with the self imposed standards of excellence of a two fold criteria: 1. can it be seen, and 2. can it be heard and/or identified. It can be a really tough decision of either/or or both to keep such high standards. Lots of work, but nowhere near as much work as those that actually make them and put them up for our enjoyment. They deserve the real credit. Thanks Leo
  24. Hi Nisse No, it doesn't have to be replaced after a short while. It can last a good long time if taken care of. See the age of the Lachenal and Wheatstone, and Crabb and others that are desirable after a hundred + years. Time will tell on these. At one time, only a few years ago, the cheap Chinese concertinas were the only way to start playing with all their frustrating faults. Concertina Connection started the line of their instruments with a lot of thought in the design, and are priced above the junk, and below the Stagi line. It became the new standard of minimum. It also has a major benefit, if something goes wrong with it, a fix is a quick phone call or email that usually resolves the problem quickly. Not so with "no name". If you'd purchase a $100/$200 no name from Ebay, chances are a year from now, "when" the skills and needs/wants demand, it's probably worthless and might make a good doorstop, if it's decorative enough. Then pay in the $2000 range for a nice instrument. So all in all there would be $2200 + taxes and shipping total. At least with a Rochelle, at $300+, a year from now, to upgrade, depending on where purchased, there is a clause that says "full purchase price refund". That means the same $2000 instrument will only need an additional $1700 when the Rochelle is traded for a better instrument. Sounds like the longer term cheaper way to go. In the US, Concertina Connection, the Button Box, and Tedrow offer that pricing. I don't know of Europe. I speak in $US, but it doesn't matter, the idea works the same in any currency. They do come available used sometimes here, and hold their value more than the lesser instruments and the Stagi line. You can still look for something really cheap. It is what it is, but it's better doing it with your eyes open with knowing rather than that's all there is. Do you play an instrument now, or read music? What kind of music you interested in? I suspect, it's not a decision that needs to be answered yesterday. Take your time and like the old knight in the movie said "Choose wisely". Thanks Leo
  25. Hi Nisse Have you found these two essays on purchasing a first concertina yet? http://www.concertina.info/tina.faq/conc-buy.htm http://www.concertina.info/tina.faq/conc-typ.htm Generally speaking the "cheap" "beginner" concertinas are a mixed bag of reliability, playability, and satisfaction, with not much of a resale value. Since you mentioned you'd like and Anglo, this one is the best recommendation overall. They hold their value and can be traded for a better one "when" the time comes at full price depending on where purchased. Sometimes, they become available used also. http://www.concertinaconnection.com/rochelle%20anglo.htm We have a few members here from Norway. The search isn't the best, but a search of Norway will have quite a few posts from members, and also some videos from others that live there. Thanks Leo
