  1. I recently noticed that when I play the concertina my left hand side is usually stationary as my right hand moves the bellows. When I play the accordion it is reversed with my left hand moving the bellows. I also can't understand how some of yall stand up and play with neither side anchored down.
  2. Finished building this limberjack today and tested it out with a few tunes.
  3. A good waltz about showing love to each other before we die.
  4. Thanks Simon, yes the dog is not fond of the squeezebox... Often she will cry or whine along with the song I'm playing!
  5. Sounds great, crank it up! Looks like you'll be tearin up the sessions in a jiffy. A bit of advice would be to invest in some earplugs for the ol lady, wait till you see your neighbours leave to practice, and most importantly don't bring it to an old time jam!
  6. Yeah you're right, I tried that out on guitar and it sounds good, but harder to trick my fingers into doing it on the concertina!
  7. Played in the key of F on the anglo. Happiest tune I know!
  8. I stopped in at the Martin (cajun) accordion factory in Scott, Louisiana on the way back home around Christmas time. I was surprised to see they had a few anglos in their repair area... There must be some concertina players in the area because of the prevalent accordion culture. Anyway yeah, put that harp in a brace and squeeze out some tunes!
