  1. 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
  2. With a surely astonishing 8-fold bellows for an English concertina ! Robin
  3. 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
  4. here's mine..........an early model I will update this winter............... Concertina spring winder
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. My shipping tip here for concertinas. I go to our local Value Village ( charity type store ) and buy a bag of 2nd hand towels for around $5-6 and use that as packing between the concertina case and the box. Robin
  8. ...................made me giggle; but I remember you as a young Morris dancer , Mike !
  9. Firstly, thanks again Adrian for recording and posting these Morris tunes. So much to enjoy just for listening and for learning. I have always thought that anyone interested in playing the anglo concertina in an accompanied style can learn a huge amount from how you play.......and in turn I know you have acknowledged Gary Couver's books in helping you. Jim B..............., I couldn't agree with you more on the two counts; the sometimes bizarre sound if you listen the music without the visuals and then the different plea
  10. Just found these today...............just lovely anglo playing. He's going to be posting one a day. Robin Walk of the Twopenny Post man Trunkles
  11. Really nice playing.....thank you. Robin
  12. Pledged..............Loved your final concert at uni thar Adrian posted, loved your first album and now looking forward to the new album ! Thanks for asking us. Robin
  13. Just been directed a great "digital sing" on Face book......led by this gentleman. It's the "Revels Virtual Spring Sing" I had not heard of him but, boy, he has a glorious voice, a wonderful english concertina song accompaniment technique and a fabulous looking baritone treble concertina. Anyone know what he plays ? Robin
  14. I recall decades ago reading a book about Shackleton's journey to antarctica that referenced an English concertina and that it was an Edeophone. This morning a friend sent me this link to the BBC New magazine website......................and there it is on the shelf, above the picture of a penguin, image 5/15. Somewhat blurry but probably the metal-ended edeophone. Here is the link.....................reference was made recently on C.net to not posting links here..............I don't know a way of letting you know about this without giving the link. If anyone
  15. William Kimber, I'm guessing, in Headington ?
  16. Mike says it is 17th Century in the written explanation......
  17. Yep, me too ! Maybe 15 yrs ago I taught myself to sight-read, on English concertina, just for this purpose. Robin
  18. hi jake............can't remember where the copy I posted came from. I think I did it but can't recall it at all. The one I appended here may be better...chords are simple but what I play on the melodeon. Also 4/4 not 2/2 Robin I should mention in bar 5 in the B part, I have put some notes one octave up because my melodeon does not have the low ones, so I skip up and down. Polperro Bay & Mrs_ Saggs.pdf
  19. This may help...........apparently Mrs. Saggs was written with no repeats but you can sort that out. Robin Polperro Bay & Mrs Saggs +chords.pdf
  20. When my children were small we did the Suzuki violin method with them for years....from 3 1/2 to 18 yrs of age. We were constantly changing my daughter's strings because they corroded where her fingers stopped the strings and my son's hardly ever. Robin
