    24 Button Anglos

    Thank you Takayuki Yagi, As for adding at 4 buttons to my 20 button instruments, I must move the reedblocks in order to creat the necessarty, space, I had meanwhile thought that for first trial I shall only add 2 buttons, exactly as you 6 buttons C row, 6 g-row and exactly, this otes. Thank you for the usfuel information Kind regards Joachim

    24 Button Anglos

    Thank you Jim for your information. Ihave seen several 24 button Lachenals on ebay., always as 3 row instruments. I am asking the information, since I pretend to extend 4 instruemtns, recentlc made, relatively well made, in relationship to its price, from 20 buttons to 24 buttons. Mantaining the actual form oif constructiuon, particularly, the reed blocks, as they are, there is not more space available for adding more than two reed plates on each side. Using standard parts from The original maker. This means it will be twp rows of six buttons on each side. I think the sdescription I have given about Frank Edgleys Layout for a 24 button concertina is correcdt and if so, then there are at all 3 x C# two times on the pull and one on the push. HIs layout is described as especially adapted or appriated for Irish Music. Thanks and regards Joachim

    24 Button Anglos

    , Hello Henk, I am asking for 8 tones, not only four, we speak about 4 additional buttons to an Anglo, which diatonic , or push/pull But serious again : I believe that Frank Edgley, porposes a 24 button instrument, addinto the folowing tones, on tthe folowoing buttons : C - row : (buttob 6´as you describe it) A# (Bb) / C' / (left Hand) (Button 7´) C#/D# G-Row : F' #/ G# I think this F# is the lower one,which you wopuld on buttopn 2 on the pul, left hand Right hand first button F# on the push and one more pull C# His reasons seem to be that he wants to optimize zthe Concertina for Irish Music, particularly. I agree with Bb, C#, D# and F# on the pull eventually the lower one and the jhigher opne. I would like to campare this idea and proposal to the ones Lachenal or others may hova chosen. Myself I would like to have a push A and a pull G, perhaps more than the Doubl or triple C#. Thank you Henk for giving your comment, any other idea ? Regards JOachim I understand also the push and pullk C# In continuation, since I forgot it to say : The four notes you mention in any case, me too, I would include those. The other four reeds, which ? Joachim

I recommend it to you, I cannot imagine, that you might feel disappointed. Joachim

    Anglophilia Brian Peters

    I I recieved today my copy of Brian´s new CD and if I passed moments of an extraordinayy pleasure listening Anglo International, I am passing again in „Concertina Heven“ eenjoyings Brians playing and arrangements.  To the comments given here, by diferent more authorised Anglo Connaiseurs and Players, I would like to add :  Brian says in the booklet, page 2 : " My aim with this record is to allow the Anglo free rein on the kind of music you´d expect it to play, like morris dance tunes or jigs, but also to cajole it intoother aereas it´s less well known for, like slow airs, ragtime, music hall and baroque." This aim has been fully achieved. And I would like to say, that for me as slightly advanced beginner on the Anglo this record is an encouragement to persue my aim, which is to improve my playing every day. I think it is a "must" to listen to this for all us Concertina Players, and not only Anglo Players.  I like to listen all tunes, all the tracks of this CD, but I would give a special mention to,  as rarely to be performed on the Anglo,nevertheless My favourites on this CD are : 1) Kissing Stones and also The Spud-Spattered Piper 2) The Northern Lass 8) Winder Minuets 11)Adieu My Lovely Nancy, fine chords and harmonies 12) Morris Dance Tune 13) The Tankard of Ale 17) The Sweet Sorrow I think Brian´s playing should be definitively included in a second edition of Anglo Interantional. Thank you Brian.

    Playing As Anglo Band For Beginners

    Thank you Russel for your suggestions. I got one Arrangement for four Voices, which appears to me quite playable and not too difficult even for beginners. It is named Tankered of Ale. I think I could share this Arrangement with you. The Music perforemd in a similar way to the sheet music I got, you cna listen on Brians Peters´CD Anglophilia. Please reply to my e-mail addresss, and if you wish to have a copy, by mail. Kind regards Joachim I thjink there must be many Players in Engalnd who should know, since there I understaqnd some use to play as a band. Anyway I think one could find intersting stuff, looking for Music arranged for Melodeons in several voices. As soon I have a chance to go to tjhe cirty I shall looj for it. I am sure I shall find something. I could share with you too. ICA may be also a source, I guess.
  8. Actually I am teaching to absolute beginners to play the Anglo Concertinas. I myself I am only an advanced Beginner. We are using 20 button instruments, single, dopuble and triple reeded. Trying to give more interest to my students, I would like to play with them as a kind of band. Would be grateful if somebody could recommend me some simple sheet musci, accoprding to our instruments and ouir limited capability. Thank you in advance for your kind attention REgards Joachim Delp

    Where To Start

    Robin, I agree with the opinions give to you here. If you have a 30 button conceertina I would higjhly recommend Bertram Levy Desmystified Anglo Concertina. Frank Edgleys Tutor is also wervy good, and usable also with the 20 button Conceertina. But it also depends on the kind of Music you wish to put the accent on.. Beertram touches various stylews, Frank Edgley, mainly Irish. I have some material I got with occasion of beginners workshops and I am actually putting together some amterial for beginners to whom I am treaching. I am prepared to share it with you and anybodfy interesteed in. If please tell me your interst, the type of instrument you own and the style of music you would like most to play by means of a personal message. Kind regards Joachim Delp

    Anglo International

    Today I received my CD´s Anglo International as a present from some generous friends. It is the most beautiful present I hve ever received. I am listening now, meanwhile doing my job in my jome office, excited and joyful. THANKS TO ALAND AND FRIENDS, who made it possible and thanks to my friends who give me the opportunity to listen and enjoy. This is worth a monument to Alan ! Actually I am imparting a workshop to absolute beginners, and my main if not unique goal is to make my pupils fall in love with the Concertina. This Cd´s allow me to demostrate them the various styles and ways of playing the Concertina. If after listening this music, they will not get apaasionate, than I could not understand anything anymore. Still I shall spent a lot of time to listen and also try to improve my playing, BUT, when will come the next one ? More please ! Regards from a happy man. Joachim Delp

    Scholer Concertina 20 Key

    Jonnie, jhappy to read that you haave got started with the information you got. As I mentionned to you in my personal message, I wish to repeat here for others, who may be in your situation, that there is also an intersting Turto, titled "Die Deutsche Konzertina" which comes along with a learning CD. It is written in German, but has easy to understand diagrams, which help and make it easy to play along with the easy International Folk Tunes and finally a very nice Tanmgo, difficult to believe that it is performed oin a 20 button German Concertina, at löeast for the beginner. It is published by Voggenreiter, possibly not easy for you to get in USA, but I could buy for the iontersted and send it. It cost about 25 US$. There is also availbale Alan DAys CD for playing an ona 20 button Concerrtina English Folk with chords. Regareds Joachim P.D. : I am preparing some more materail for a workshop for absolute Beginners, which eventually, and once finished I can send.

  18. Concertina Players from all over the World !!! Well more reasonably from Germany and Neigbour Countries ! Dear Friends, I am back ! I got a job after quite a long time. I am back to Life and also back to Concertina.net, although I did not give up and have gone ahead playing and learning to play the Concertina, and since I had to give away my a bit better Concertinas, I am leaning to handle my cheap Chinese ones and sometimes they start to sound good. Whe I startred tzo play the Anglo, it has been easier to progresss with the better ones, now I know a bit better, I find ways to take advantage about the Chinese ones. Well, to the point : Henk and I plan to meet about the 10 and/or 11 / 12 of December, here in my place REINHEIM, not far away from DArmstadt and Frankfurt/Main. Henk and I we sould enjoy to have more Players and Friends with us. I hope at least one more German Player will be with us. I could organize something, would do my best, to make you have a nice weekend in GErmany, eventually sleeping in the Forest in reasonable price Guesthouse, organized by Odenwald Freunde, meaning Friends of our local mopuntains. or alternatively in a cheap Hotel in m,y town. Here is a local group of amateuer Musicians who like Irish Music, I could make them join us and otherws. We could make Music, speak about the isntruments and eventually visit our beautiful Xmas Markets in our surroundings. We have also Irish Pubs in DArmstadt and possibly I copuld also organize a session or somethjing like a session. Jim, Jonatahan, Erwin and who more ? Let me know the soonest possible your interst and I shall organize or better said improvise somehting we all may enjoy, sopmething with a spontanous character, as I am. I cannot tell you nothing about cost in this moments, but I would estimatze apart of travel cost, the stage here, may not come more expwnsive than 70 - 120 Euros ???? I also can contact the KonzertinaNetz, German Concertinanet, and maybe some of this groupment may come also. Cordially and excitedly Joachim Delp Please excuse typing errors. Hurry together wirtth my sight proble.-..

Curious to see if there is any response to this request. Kind regards and thanks in advance for the attention. Joachim

    First German Mini Squeeze In

    Mr. John Wild, I am afraid I shall enter into any conflicrt with any other event, considering the number of reactions until now. Anyway, nothjing has been "planned", nothing will be really "planned", it has been a spontneous idea, and if something comes to reality, it will be something imporvised but hopefully enjoyable. For all, I think I can find the time during the weekend to give some more detailed information and then it maybe easier to take a decision. Kind regards Joachim Delp

    First German Mini Squeeze In

    Anne & Chris. Althouhg I did not mention you when lancing the poll, I had you in mind as I have others. Nice to know that you might have been willing to consider the possibility to come. Consequence of improvising and giving no chnce to plan time enough ahead. Whatever will be organized you will be informed by some kind of documentation, fotos or Video or sound recording or altogehter. And I have an idea since last year to do something better organized for the end of June next year. If so, I would inform next time with time. The Lachenal is very little used since July, when I left Spain and had no chance to return uintil now, for circunstances, I do not wnat to describe here. Kind regards Joachim

    First German Mini Squeeze In

    Thanks Ken, speaking the day 23 about something thought to happen day 12 of Decmeber, is certainlöy very short and the "eventual meeting" necesaryly must have a improvised character. Coming weekend I may propose some more details. I am open for suggestions. But in any case it will be a happening of joy . Some freinds of music and particularly Concertina Players, wintertime, Pre-Chrismas Time, Hot Wine, must be a success however persons we may join. Once more thank you for your kind attention, Ken. And to all the others : Animo, Courgae, : If Music, Free Redd ,Concertina, Folk and Friendship, Cordiality is what you like, you will find it if you come. Joachim Delp
