  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. Both need a bit of a polish but here they are. constructive criticism welcome thanks for listening!
  5. It is still available. I think the insured shipping from Bermuda is putting people off at the moment.
  6. Still available. I’d be willing to negotiate on price. I’d love this instrument to be getting used.
  7. 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
  8. I meant to cover any blocking and the sides of the inside of the case.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. There’s so serious thread drift here! 😉
  12. Good morning fellow squeezers! All the best for 2023 - I hope we all achieve our musical goals and have a wonderful time doing it!
  13. I did think that too Theo. I’m going to make a concerted effort to just rest the end of the instrument against my thigh to avoid further wearing
  14. Good afternoon everyone. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I was playing this afternoon and noticed some discoloration on the underside of my Kensington’s bellows and I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to something I could put on it to keep it from getting any worse. It must be from where the bellows rest against my thigh.
  15. Highly recommend Kensington concertinas. I love mine
  16. Mine has arrived but my wife’s holding it hostage until Christmas Day!
  17. It sure does Jody. You could play anything nicely on the Anglo!
  18. Nice one Clive - retiring! Congratulations! Let me know if you are headed this way!
  19. So true Clive! Have you been here? I wish more C-netters travelled here and would bring their instruments! It's quite a solitary hobby for me here!
  20. Looks a lovely instrument and if I were flush with cash I'd surely take you up on it. Quite fancy a baritone at some point
