  1. Hi Christine; no-one is biting here so I'll just say there are as many opinions on hand strap tension as there are concertina players, possibly more ! And probably as many players who like them loose as there are ones who like then snug. For myself, I like like part of my hand to be snug ( around the thumb area) and the rest loose.....and can do this with an english style thumb strap on an anglo. Robin

    I seem to hear Amin as suggested in the seventh bar I know what you mean ,Wolf, but to my ears, the C-> Em-> Am-> is more interesting ? Small difference really, I think. I also play melodeon and if you are not careful you can end up playing the same chord over and over so I strain to change it up on that instrument and I bring that approach to the anglo. There’s a classic 16th c Italian renaissance progression called the passamezzo antico that fits the A section: Am–|G–|Am–|E–|C–|G–|AmE|Am–||. For the B section, I would use the “romanesca” variant (see both linked wikipedia articles) replacing the first Am with a C. Interesting articles, Dave. I do like the suggestion of changing the E minor's to E major in the first section. As it turns out, that is what I do anyway. I often play two note chords on the bass side which tends to be a neutral chord but very effective on the anglo when tapping/punching out chords without the beat note. But we agree on A dorian, with an F# in the key signature ? Thanks both. Robin Greensleeves.nwc

    I've recently found this version of Greensleeves, one I Like very much. Could someone have a look at the pdf and tell me if the B part looks right...........ie should I keep the same key sig. throughout and place the # signs as I have. And A minor dorian ? The chords I've indicated are ones I play but any other suggestions welcome. Thanks.................Robin Greensleeves & Polly the Lass Greensleeves.pdf

    Tune name ?

    Alistair's name is listed as the composer. That's the answer I'm looking for; thanks again Robin

    Tune name ?

    John, you are a pal ! However, I'm not sure it gets me any further ahead ! Reading the notes carefully , he appears NOT to mention the second tune, Thrunton Woods; assuming that the "polka I found in a manuscript etc" is the Hawk Polka . Is that how you read it ? Thanks again , Robin

    Tune name ?

    And the answer is....................Thrunton Woods from Corby Crag, the Alistair Anderson album This from Novascotian who I believe may be a member both here and Mel.net. Thank you to him for a good memory ! Next up I would like to figure out where it comes from. I've tried enlarging images I can get off the net of the back of the LP but can't make it out. If anyone owns the LP, I'd appreciate an image of it. I"m pleased to have found the name but it's not one imbued with beauty for such a chipper tune.............Thrunton.....................but perhaps Thrunton Woods is a place of loveliness, who knows.
