    Wanted: Used Morse Anglo. Hoping to buy one.

    Hi David. I’ve got a G/D Morse I’d be willing to sell.

    Something else that might be nice - the ability to transpose the recorded audio for anyone using an instrument other than a C/G

    Any interest - Morse G/D #952

    Good morning all - I have Morse Ceili #952 in black finish with Jeffries layout - try as I might I can't get my head around learning a new fingering system and I end up coming back to my Clover kit C/G Wheatstone layout more often than not. Does anyone have any interest in a very lightly played G/D Morse? It's in perfect condition I just don't play it very much. I could sell it or maybe exchange it for a C/G - it would have to be Wheatstone layout! If selling I'd be looking for about $2250. I would exchange for a Morse Ceili in C/G or a similar hybrid or perhaps a vintage instrument of similar value. I will upload pictures later.

    Hi Caitlín - I just ran through the starter course and I really enjoyed the way you teach and the choice of tune. I think I might sign up!

    Concertina care

    So what’s everybody think about my climate?! It’s 80 degrees Fahrenheit plus for most of the year and 80 to 90 percent humidity most of the time also! I think the sea is maybe 15 feet from my back door. Not much like the British climate!

    Irish Concertina Lessons

    This is another great resource for Irish style playing! However - when will we get the same for harmonic/English style?!

    Digby's Farewell

    I’ve been watching the new videos every day and ther hasn’t been one tune that I don’t want to learn. Really looking forward to it!

    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 - SOLD

    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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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...
  19. 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.
  20. Good afternoon all. I wondered if all of you who play the anglo do so as if it were a C/G instrument. I learnt the fingerings etc on a Wheatstone C/G layout instrument and transfer that directly to my G/D - is this the correct way to do it? Or do I need to relearn where all my notes are?
  21. 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.
  22. This is not making things much clearer! I find myself playing the C/G far more as the pitch for the tunes sounds right to me. I like the sound of the G/D but the pitch of it makes playing tunes I know sound odd.
  23. Hi Derek - that's what I do at the moment. I've tried learning the correct fingering but find it incredibly frustrating!
