    Wonderful Adrian - really looking forward to this book.

    Anglo Concertina Button Layout

    Nice looking chart - do you have any learning resources that you could share for boeremusiek?

    True those two aren’t for Irish style. But is Katyusha in D minor an Irish tune? I think it’s russian.

    What our concertinas look like?

    Nice instrument Gary - how does it play? Any new videos?

    Morse Ceili CG

    Hi Clifton - did you ever sell this? Would you be interested in a trade for a G/D Morse?

    I'd agree with Terence - Gary Coover's books are great as is Betram Levy's tutor. The Irish tutor's are good even if in the long run Irish style playing is not for you as it teaches you where the notes are all over the instrument especially if you're playing across the rows.
  8. Wondering if anyone had a full work up of Homeward Bound from the Seaman's Concertina by John Townley. Great tune - maybe for a G/D but C/G would be great as well!

    Morse Céilí C/G Anglo For Sale SOLD

    I wish - I’ve got g/d # 952 which I’d love to trade for a c/g!
  10. Hello all! I've been away from the concertina for a while pursuing other interests and I'm coming back with a quick question for you... I'm very rusty after a long hiatus so I'm thinking I'll run through my tutor books which are all for the C/G anglo but I'll use my G/D anglo. What do other players do when they switch between anglos tuned in other keys? Do you continue to play them as though you're using a C/G? I suppose it doesn't really matter as I play on my own but I'm interested to hear what others do.

    G/d Morse In Immaculate Condition

    Still available...
  13. Hi All - I have a G/D Morse Ceili anglo with Jeffries fingering that I'm considering selling - it hurts my head too much to try and play the tunes I know on a C/G on a G/D and I find the transition between Wheatstone on my primary instrument and Jeffries on the G/D rather frustrating. A new Ceili will set you back $2550 and this one is in as new condition. I would like to get $2300 but would consider swapping for a C/G hybrid in equally good condition. Please message me if you'd like to see pictures - I could even attempt a few videos if so desired. Thanks for looking.
  14. I've been using the Online Academy of Irish Music lessons for a while now and I really enjoy them. The Mick Bramich book is an excellent resource. I just ordered the Concertina Diaries and I'm looking forward to trying it out - I hear nothing but good things regarding it.
