Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. Hi Marcus, what happened with the leather wearing away from your bellows? I've just noticed something similar on my Edgley. Interested to see how you went.  Suzie

  2. That’s great news. I learned a great deal from Frank’s books.
  3. Gregor - I can’t seem to find your video. Can you post a link?
  4. I read music - I tend to pick up tunes a lot quicker from the sheet music which I see as the bones of the tune.
  5. I also just play. I’ve had formal music training but I still just play tunes. I’ll play a few scales to warm up my fingers and then play the the last few tunes I was working on or a new one if I’ve heard something I like. I’ll go over bits that are tricky and then try out different grace notes and decorations. Scales and studies are useful I’m sure but I tend to just play tunes.
  6. Thanks David and noted. It was a spur of the moment thing and I didn’t really put much thought into the staging of the video!
  7. Both need a bit of a polish but here they are. constructive criticism welcome thanks for listening!
  8. It is still available. I think the insured shipping from Bermuda is putting people off at the moment.
  9. Still available. I’d be willing to negotiate on price. I’d love this instrument to be getting used.
  10. How did you laminated the velvet to the neoprene peel and stick sheets? Do you remember what brand the neoprene was? I’m in Bermuda so will probably have to order everything anyway so details and where to get things would be much appreciated
  11. I meant to cover any blocking and the sides of the inside of the case.
  12. Can you use the felt available at a craft shop to line a concertina case? I guess it’s the same stuff kids use for craft projects.
  13. Dana is such a giving guy. So willing to share his knowledge and time. His concertinas are wonderful - I know I love mine. When I bought mine second hand he honored the “first tune up” that goes with a new instrument since it had never been back to him for it. Dana is in this for the music - just like it says on his website and with a Kensington you can’t go wrong.
