  1. But maybe not.............piano accordions, like all free reed instruments, are great and might get him interested enough in to the extent that he wants to spend 150-250 pounds on a 2nd hand but excellent one. There are loads of them around; just do a eBay search......( not a really popular instrument just now) Worth making the point again that if your son has a gift for music ( but even if he doesn't ), trying to learn on a clunker is tough sleddin'. Now if you only lived in Ontario, I have one he can have for free.................you can come and collect if you like ! Stay over . Cheers Robin.....................

    ................also worth noting that for some odd reason it is often easier ( I didn't say better!) to play a tune new to you faster rather than slower. And thus are habits formed. In my case I think it's because playing slower needs more control not less. Robin

    Wonderful......for an anglo player it's an inspiration too! We may not have the full access to notes as duet players do but it gives many ideas for the left hand. Thanks for posting. Robin

    Looking for octave (below) C/G Anglo

    Pretty sure, given the raised ends on the anglo, he's playing his Dipper. Robin

    Jeffries Anglo Repair on BBC iplayer

    Can't easily get it in Canada either................but I'm curious to know about Roger Thomas. The name is not familiar to me as a concertina repair person. Robin

    DG Melodeon to GD Anglo?

    I also play both..........and quite simply, I believe the answer is "No". If you are content playing melodeon, trying to learn an anglo will complicate your life. Robin

    Rosewood Added To C I T E S Appendix 2

    Could you elaborate on this ? I have a number of concertina friends here who regularly cross borders ( national , that is !) Thanks Robin
  10. ..............this is from Steve's post. The trick (and it is a learned skill,) is to learn to play quietly. Robin

    Tx all for the suggestions. Robin

    Gap filling.....

    There is shrinkage between the outside veneer and the mahogany ( i think) action board. Everything is very solid but the veneer needs to be supported underneath. Just run some epoxy in the gap ? Can epoxy be diluted a little so it runs in rather than having to smear it in. Or inject it in from the bottom of the gap ? Thanks Robin

    Jeffries in B/F# (really!)

    opinions Here's mine, Dave. Leave it where it is and when someone wants to buy it, let them choose. Robin
