  1. Who am I? (I still wonder that) Dave I am the Jim who on sunday morning asked you if you could remember the words to "I use to work in Chicago" Allison, I'm sure you would recognize me but I don't think we talked this weekend. I play english concertina, and recently started on a d/g melodeon. Ill have to add my C.net name to my button next year. All the best. JIm
  2. Bellowbell Thanks for bringing the foot base! what a wonderful sound, it carried all through the dinning room. What a great time, and what great people. Can't wate to go next year. All the best to everyone who was there. Jim
  3. Personally I find the lower tone of the baritone more pleasing to my ear. I got a Morse ec baritone last year and like it a lot. Your not far away from the Button Box, take a ride up there some time and try them both out. There the same size and about the same weight. I play contra dance music with a group of friends. The baritone helps separate the concertina from the violins. If I played treble it would be hard to hear myself play. Aside from that I find the pitch of the baritone more pleasant, the down side is the bottom notes require more air, but you know this already. Good luck. Jim
  4. Just wanted to say how much fun I had at NESI this past weekend. As a new (and isolated) concertina player it was overwhelming and incredibly inspirational to encounter so many other players, and to learn about this site. I kind of felt like the alcoholic who wanders into there first AA meeting, Hi my name is Jim and I'm a concertina player. I stayed around to the bitter end on Sunday and was a little disappointed others couldn't stay, but can't wait till next year. All the best Jim
