  2. Hi Jeffrey Mozart is a good place to start. Mozart: 12 Variations "Ah, vous dirai-je, maman" Thanks Leo
  3. Hi Mike A friend who makes writing pens tells me the differences between bone and ivory are: 1. Bone is alive, ivory is dead like fingernails, hair, and the enamel on teeth. 2. Bone has black spots from old unused blood vessels as the bone grows, ivory has something that only looks like growth rings on trees. 3. Ivory feels more smooth to the touch, bone less so. 4. Ivory is harder than bone 5.Bone is porous, ivory is not. He then mentioned it takes a practice in isolation to tell the differences, but if a piece were laying next to each other it would be easy. Then he pointed to this site for examples: http://www.asianartmall.com/refivory.htm I'm just repeating an answer, but it makes sense to me Thanks Leo
  4. Hi Randy There is a third one. The Roger French Trio- "Caravan" + Thanks Leo

    neck strap

    Hi Edo There has been mention in the past of a camera strap from the local big box store that's inexpensive, ready made and adjustable. Or the other extreme could be custom made from Vince Brennan: http://www.frayedknotarts.com/specials.html Thanks Leo
  7. It took me a while to figure out where those charts came from, but I finally found it with a note of explanation. I knew I'd seen them somewhere before. http://www.concertina.net/wm_english_chords.html By the way, I didn't notice the question first coming up in the "Test Forum". I'm glad it was re-asked so it doesn't disappear in a short time. Good catch. Thanks Leo

  9. Hi Kaytilya From a biography of Charlie Chaplin. Let it play a minit for the English commentary. I started it a little early for a lead in. The rest is in Spanish, but read the comments, there is more with a reference that says it's his first song onstage. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rPWnoph6qQ#t=6m00s He was born in 1889, so that would put at least the turn of the century in 1900. Sorry I can't help with the other one. Thanks Leo

  14. Hi Mark That's a good site. I've been enjoying their videos for a while too. Some great stuff in there. They also have a YouTube channel that's neat to explore: http://www.youtube.com/user/folkstreamer#g/u There is also another YouTube channel that has a history of American folk music that's interesting to watch. All 3 parts should play automatically: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=D59F5CC14B7F82C7 Thanks Leo

  16. Hi Bob It's an MP3 file. There is no online player. If you click on the image of a CD with the green down arrow, a dialogue box should open with a choice to save it to your computer or play it with a default player. The player would depend on how your computer is configured. Either way works well. Then fast forward to 1:00:00 (one hour into it) like Snorre suggested for the interview. It's in english, so even I could understand it. Nice interview. Worth a listen. Thanks Leo

  19. In the 1936 Shirley Temple movie "Captain January", about 5:40 seconds into the movie, is a nice concertina tune with a dance by Buddy Ebsen. It's a 20 button Anglo. There is another tune at 7:40, but I think it's an accordeon. And the 1955 musical "Hit the Deck" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7jLUrjU-ZA&fmt=18 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Ep 5 Different Drum Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKL3Sgb_ACw#t=07m20s Watch until the end. There is a part 2 but only lasts a few minits. _____ In the 1962 movie "The Password is Courage", shortly after arriving at the POW camp, there is an assembly with a miniature concertina, and banjo and harmonica. There is a quick glimpse of it in the trailer: Or if you prefer the whole movie, at 19m 15s is the first scene. It shows up later in the film also: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFX_Hukjbtw#t=19m15s The concertina player is credited as Tommy Elliott http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0254659/ _____ Thanks Leo

  21. Hi Sean M There's lots of different non-Irish anglo music out there. It's an instrument to play whatever you wish. It won't break if you play some other genre of music on it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHCYkf96HBY&fmt=18 There are a couple of YouTube channels with Boeremusiek if you like that. http://www.youtube.com/user/KZNsMrBoeremusiek#g/u http://www.youtube.com/user/blublunt#g/u http://www.youtube.com/user/konsertina#g/u http://www.youtube.com/user/springbok07#g/u Johnny Klegg would be a good example of the squashbox variety. Or you could try this, written for an Anglo: http://www.archive.org/details/TheDevilsDreamworldSheetMusic How much would you like? Thanks Leo
  22. Hi Taka Thanks for taking the time to let us know. Take Care Leo
  23. Hi geoff Sorry about that. I'm usually more careful in editing and proofreading my list. But the videos were up for a few days (8 March), and nobody owned up to them before I posted them a couple of days later on Friday the 11th. I didn't make the connection with a different screen name on the YouTube account. If you like, I can edit my list and remove them, but I would like to keep the video of the "Shruti Box Demo" since it comes up in conversation occasionally. Thanks Leo
  24. Hi Wakasaobama Glad you're alright. Thanks for letting us know. Hi Peter I don't believe they are members here, but it's good to hear they are doing o.k. Takayuki Yagi is one of our frequent members, but I don't know where he lives. Tomo, a newer member, is from Tokyo. I'll bet with lots of earthquakes, a tsunami, and a few atomic power plants out of commission, they are busy and we're the least of their thoughts. That's o.k. with me. There are a couple of other members with a location in Japan, but they haven't posted in a while. Thanks Leo
