  3. Hi David Way way back, when I found out mom and dad weren't going to support me anymore, and I had to learn how to work, I worked with a bunch of old guys around the age of my grandfather. Most of them could tap out at least the chorus of a recognizable tune on their handsaw. They would place the fingers of their right hand down through the wooden handle, and hold the tip of the saw in their left hand. The teeth of the saw were pointed away from the body. They put tension and bent the saw into a slight "S" shape and tapped away with their right thumb. It was kind of neat to try. All I could do was make a couple of pitch changing noises rather easily. Nothing like those "old guys". They were good at it and playing together too. The best sounds came from the older thinner saws. The newer ones were too thick to bend easily or make it sound pleasant. It was nothing like the newer YouTube types playing with a bow either, but it was fun trying to keep up with them. They tolerated me. Thanks Leo
  4. Hi Perterson426 The button layout looks remarkably close to these: http://ciceroconcertina.weebly.com/downloads.html The FAQ has some useful information too: http://ciceroconcertina.weebly.com/chemnitzer-faq.html They are from a site by one of out members Ted Kloba, but I haven't seen him here for a few months. He's our resident expert. He has a contact page, and I'd bet he'd be helpful with more information. He's close too; in Chicago. I can't help with anything more than that. Thanks Leo

It's mixed up with accordions: http://www.mediarare.com/MRFlmNts.html#abba There is a TV list thread, that's a year old http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=10555&view=findpost&p=105958 Concertinas show up frequently in movies in the least expected places. There are a few mentions of them in the forums.

  12. How can we not mention "Lena From Palesteena". I'd almost forgotten about it. Eddie Cantor's version PALESTEENA (Lena From Palesteena) Shimmy by J. Russel Robinson & Con Conrad In the Bronx of New York City Lived a girl, she's not so pretty Lena is her name. Such a clever girl is Lena How she played her concertina Really, it's a shame. She's such a good musician She got a swell position To go across the sea to entertain. And so they shipped poor Lena Way out to Palesteena From what they tell me, she don't look the same. They say that Lena is the Queen o' Palesteena Just because she plays the concertina. She only knows one song, She plays it all day long Sometimes she plays it wrong, But still they love it What more of it I heard her play once or twice. Oh! Murder! Still, it was nice. All the girls, they dress like Lena Some wear oatmeal, some Farina Down old Palesteena way. Lena's girlfriend Arabella Let her meet an Arab fella Who she thought was grand. On a camel's back a-swaying You could hear Miss Lena playing Over the desert sand. She didn't know the new ones All she knew were blue ones And Yusef sat and listened all day long (or: Till Yusef sat and listened in his tent) And as he tried to kiss her You heard that Arab whisper, "Oh Lena, how I love to hear your song!" (or: "Oh Lena, how I love your instrument!") They say that Lena is the Queen o' Palesteena 'Cause she shakes a wicked concertina. She plays it day and night She plays with all her might She never gets it right, You think it's funny, Gets her money. There's nothin' sounds like it should. So rotten, it's really good. While the Arabs danced so gaily She would practice aily-aily Down old Palesteena way. Lena, she's the Queen o' Palesteena Goodness, how they love her concertina. Each movement of her wrist Just makes them shake and twist They simply can't resist How they love it Want more of it. When she squeeks That squeeze-box stuff All those sheiks Just can't get enough. She got fat as he got Lena Pushing on her concertina Down old Palesteena way. And two others Concertina - Roaring Lion Harry Belafonte Angelina Thanks Leo
  13. Hi dussek I'm not sure of any older recordings or sounds, but there are a few modern samples. I can't imagine them being much different, other than better quality of the audio.

  14. Truth be told, I haven't even scratched the surface of what's "out there". There are so many personalities and musicians, it would be fertile ground for searches. I don't know many names or where to even begin. I just use a simple search, and believe me, it's limited to a small area. The really hard work is from those that make their videos available for our enjoyment. If you're a member of YouTube, be sure to thank them. I found the one for Bob and held up posting it thinking Bob would mention it since it contains his latest project that he posted in the Construction and Repair Forum. It's really pretty and sounds nice too. Maybe he doesn't know about it? My first thought on the toon was "that's no way to treat a busker with a concertina", but then again........ Everything worked out o.k. Thanks Leo

  17. Hi Fern If it were me, and not specifically mentioned or disallowed in the contract, I would accept it as a TIP. Think in the area of waiters/waitresses getting paid to take an order and serve, the gratuity is a little something extra. The only thing I could come close is my son handing me a dollar to stop the noise. I think it was in retaliation of me giving him a dollar when he took up a guitar. So I accepted it with the caveat, that the silence would last for about 15 minutes. If he wanted longer, he needed to pay more. So, does that make me a professional too? I didn't have the heart to tell him I needed a break to make coffee anyhow. Thanks Leo
  18. Hi Tomo It works and that's what counts. Are you going to refine it for a more permanent installation? Thanks Leo

  21. Hi Dirge The internet is a BIG place with lots of crooks and nannies for videos to hide. Any addition is welcome. There's room for everyone. Revisits are cool too. No apology needed. Thanks Leo
  22. Hi Kautilaya There are two versions that sound o.k. Not a concertina, but at least they're free reed instruments. There is one of my favorite Ango concertina players sometimes associated with this guitar player, but he's noticably missing in this one. I'd check back on this channel. It might just show up one of these days. (I like the guitar player too.) You never know what will show up on the internet. I can't get this to play, and I don't know if it's the right version. I don't know if it's because I'm in the US, or it's just my computer, but it promises a concertina played by Scan Tester. http://sounds.bl.uk/View.aspx?item=025M-C0903X0169XX-0700V0.xml If I were down under in Australia, I might ask the library if track 17 is the correct version. http://nla.gov.au/nla.cs-ma-an6288693 That's about the best I can do on short notice. Thanks Leo

  25. Hi Ken and Pamela I don't know how much information is stored online and how much is stored on my computer as a cookie, but on my computer are 13 pieces of information stored. One of them is a logic switch 0/1 labeled cnethid_sidebar, with a content of 0. I'm pretty sure if it were 1 the sidebar would be off. Would it work to sign out, then delete the cookie, then sign back in again as a new login. I'm pretty sure that would do it, similar to using another computer. Otherwise, manually edit the cookie to 0 might reset it, then go back on C.net to see if it worked. I couldn't find any information in the help file, or any settings in my profile that would address it. I thought there was a switch at the bottom of the main forum page to delete all the cookies, but I can't find it either. Thanks Leo
