Chatty concertinist

Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. Hi Jody http://orchid-electronics.co.uk/contact_mic.htm With this and micrvox mikes, I had too high a signal, but with some home made copies it works well. Graham
  2. With a 2006 Wakker anglo I have had most of the leather discs, between pad and leather bead on levers, fail. In fact I dont think they could have been leather, glue was fine on both surfaces, but disintergrated between. The concertina became much crisper in action after all pads were reattached.
  3. 1st, 2nd, chord etc in scale as selected from rotating ends as marked on left side.
  4. Numbers are showing octave range: C4 is middle C.
  5. Push f2 c3 f3 a3 c4 f4 a4 c5 f5 a5 Pull c3 e3 g3 bb3 d4 e4 g4 bb4 d5 e5 E4 g3 c4 e4 g4 c5 e5 g5 c6 e6 Push d4 b3 d4 f4 a4 b4 d5 f5 a5 b5 Pull this is what is on my FC Wheatstone 30 button, there may be changes on a Boer anglo
  6. Comments from a long term G/D anglo player, with 30 buttons, mainly Wheatstone layout. My top note Is F#6 and lowest G2, your layout is in the baritone range, yours is G5? Your C# row gives you all the notes, but no Ds on the draw or Es on press. I find those essential. I am happy with the accidental row. Graham

  8. Hi, I have a Wakker anglo, where after removal of the screws, there is a strong ''glue tack'' that I have to break. This still happens after 10 years, there is no sticky feeling after making the break. I hold bellows in two hands and then push ends with thumbs together on one side. You have to be firmer than you would expect.

  10. Wakker G/D. For me I try to play as much of the tune with my right hand. Main keys G D, A and E minors, B minor, A C, G and D minor, F in order of ease and use. I feel Irish style C/G requires a strong left hand, so I wouldn't use C/G ''D'' fingering, it would end up an octave lower than I would like to be. A good tune to start with is Atholl Highlanders. It is all on the D row, no g#, but gives you the feeling of being in A ( 2nd position?) 4th part you only need fingers 1 and 2 on right hand: B g row| c#ac#c#ac# (all pull d row and g row}|dbddbd (all push)| c#ac#c#ac#| bgbbgb ( all push g row)|c#ac#c#ac#|dbddbd|eeef#ed ( all d row)|c# ba| . Blackthorn Stick in A is another good starter tune. Graham
