  1. I'd be interested to know why/what is the significance of the 2 degree taper ? Thanks Robin
  2. These are great on the anglo !..... Northumbrian pipes of course .............😉 Herd on the Hill, Buttered Peas, Because he was a Bonny Lad.pdf
  3. Hmmm.............interesting. I too heard the Pentangle version years ago but knew the song tune was different the tune I played. The fellow I got it from got it from Dave Shepherd of Blowzabella......he said he would ask Dave. I'll report back if any more info comes along.
  4. Thank you, John.....nice of you. At second 7 in the video I have named them but they are............ Lyke Wake Dirge Old Woman of Coverdale Morpeth Lasses New Road to Alston. I did three on EC and one on anglo but I can't remember which at the mo. Robin
  5. A couple of months ago a melodeon friend on mine had and continues to have some serious medical issues to accommodate. He is one of these people who you are delighted to know.................and by being with them makes you feel a better person than you probably are ! To cheer him up and as a homage, I recorded these tunes and used my Covid-time to learn a new and very simple video editing programme. Anthony, an ex-pat Brit like myself living in Southern Ontario, spent some very happy years at school at Ampleforth. The first two tunes are f
  6. Well done team C.net ! Thanks both............of course ! Wolf.....Sligo Fancy and aka Marquis of Lorne ! Will have a look; thanks Boys of Bluehill..............I recall now the poor tune was played mercilessly to within and inch of it's life and I (we) stopped playing it. Now, 35-40yrs later I realise why we played it so much...it's a lovely. Thanks again Robin
  7. I've just dragged these two hornpipes up from my memory.............they were popular session tunes in the UK in the 80's. The tunes I can remember not the names. Any help ? Thanks Robin Hornpipe #1.pdf Hornpipe #2.pdf
  8. 4, 5 & 6 are common are for trebles...............I've never seen this number for a treble. Others will comment I'm sure on TT's and BT's. Robin
  9. With a surely astonishing 8-fold bellows for an English concertina ! Robin
  10. Nice solution Bill. I did something similar a couple of years ago when I got a Bb/F ( from Alex W.) I needed to move the hand rest and it made the air release button uncomfortable to use. My solution was a couple of old ebony piano keys rescued from a dump. I did not need to drill any holes etc.......everything is removable in 3 minutes. Seems to work well.........the thumb can slide up or down freely. Robin
  11. here's mine..........an early model I will update this winter............... Concertina spring winder
  12. OK...............Aeola piccolo .......and.......Dipper G/D bass I don't think the Dipper is a real bass, should be called a baritone, but that's what Colin calls it. It's hand-full to play. Robin
  13. Bravo, you guys ! What a terrific three minutes of music; especially on concertinas........really enjoyed it. It is inspirational too.........my mate, Bill N. who posts on this site, and I are trying to play some tunes on our concertinas together and a tune like this would be an excellent challenge. ( He may well hear this for the first time here ! !) Hoping for more tunes from you both and would love to see it on YouTube as well. Robin
