  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Alam, My knowledge of your Language is not good enough to understand perfectly well your comment, but I am happy to understand, that the plans for a monument, are already dopne. Please inform the place where it will be build up.. Regards Joachim
  4. 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
  5. Thank you Frank for informming about this coming CD by Chris Droney. I only own his CD "A fertile Rock", which I am listening quite frequently and is always a fountain of pleasure and enjoyment. I am not sure where I co0uld get his newest CD, I would be gratzeful for anadvise, where in Ireland I could oprder it. Regards Frank Joachim Delp
  6. 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.
  7. Jonnie, If you give me your postal address, I can send you a copy of some sheets I received during a "Beginners Workshop", showing how to play chors to some simple melodies and tunes. Kind regardsy Joachim Delp

  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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.-..
  17. Fabian, where you are living in France ? Being a very good book, Bertram Levy´s Desmystified Anglo" is written fopr the 30 button concertina. As already said, you wwill find here in the net all the information y<ou need, also Chris Timson FAQ. Int the Links, you wuill find a Frabnh Honmepage in FRranch Langauge, written by a French Concertina Player, I think it is called mroe or less Concertina in #Fance. For the 20 button Anglo, I would recommmend also Frank Edgleys Tutor, which you will find easyy on Frank´s Hoepage and can order directly from him too. If you give me youor address, I cxan send you a copy of a page fo the Fraench Magayine LÁccordeon, sjhowing you where to buy a Beginners Tutor inb France in French. My eyes are ill so for me it is an extra effort to find, to locate more precisely tjhis information for you. Also I am in ghuur now. Burt i f you have probelms to find, what I mention, I can helo youz later on, on Sunday. I have also some CD edited by Henk van Aalen, he made it for me, this great man, playing Irish Tunes and some other at Learning Speed and on normal Speed. You might find it helpful. I am allowed to burn a copy. Enjoy your Concertina and let us know about your progress. Kind regards Joachim
  18. Frank, Ken, Tom, thank you all. Frank for making this beautiful instrument and ionfroming, Tom for editing this geat report and nintersting muscial Audio files, Ken for making it easy and quick to arrive to the pages. What a visual and accoustic pleasure. Regards Joachim
  19. Dear Henk and dear Mr. Bellows, Thank you for your reply. Henk, always helpful, I shall take. To be wise ? Me ? Can the heart be wise ? Mr. Bellows : Your advice seems to practical. I bought a nice old Anglo Lachenal with a 5 fold bellow, which does not work. It has been cheap. It looks nice, a pity to destroy. But I guess I shall do so with the result that of a dying bellow may be borne new ones. Kind regards Joachim Delp
  20. I plan to teach children to play the Concertina. I have my own ideas about it, but practically no expereoince. Who has expereionce, ideas, suggestions for this purpose. Limit the instrument to a 20 key instrument ? The children will be about 8 - 12 years old. Any Tutor to be recommended. Preparing a own one, what should it contain for a first part ? Any Tutor for other instruments, whioch might serve as an example ? Wellany comment and suggestion will be gratefully received. Thanks in advance and kind regaresd Joachim
  21. Hi All, Tring to find who might be willing to share his knowledge with me and others, helpiong to learn to make bellows. I am ready to travel in order to meet with the person, who might be rady to show me. Although I think that the firtst steps could be resolved also in distance. Curious to see if there is any response to this request. Kind regards and thanks in advance for the attention. Joachim
  22. Hi All, I am searching for Bellow Makers, apart of the Instrument Majers. Who can inform ? The intention is to buy on a regular basi a small number of bwellows at a ressinable pricve. Thanks in advance for the attention Joachim
  23. Dear All, As you may have seen, I had offered my Tedrow Baritone for sale. I played all the time mainly myC/G treble Concertina and very little the Tedrow Baritone I own. There has not been much response or interst Luckily nobody wanted to buy it and after haviong sold my C/G Treble, I am playing more the Baritonme and I am learning : - My TEDROW made Baritone is good, and with exception of the lowseste two reed, even quick. It sounds lvely and even majestic. I knoqw that Bo has build in the fionest Antonelli reeds he could get and those reeds are sounding depending on the oplayer sweet, similar to a Flute perhapsx or evfen a clarinet, and it cvan play very loud and never unpleasant. So thank you Bob. Up to know I had not get aware the good and well made instrumetn you have given to me. - Yesterday I had the chance to play together with another G/D tuned Concertina, playing Folk Music and Shanties. We did it on a public place, and I earned my first buck as street musician - Later in the day I learend to play a Slow Air in the G Row in D and well I have nio better word than "beutiful", charming. I shall go ahead to discover my TEdrow Baritone. If you loiok for an payable Baritone Anglo, I want to recommed the TEdrow warmly. This I say sioncerely and convinced,. Thanks Bob. But the real intention of the Topic is : When I bought mine, which might have been the first Baritone Bob has made, I thought that Bob would sell many of them, that it would be a commercial succes for him. I have not spoken with him recently, but I guess it is not as I havwe thouhgt. And the very reduced interst in my offer, does confirm this impression. I ask : WHY ? And more important for me I ask to Britone Anglo Players to tell me, how, for waht kind of Music they do use their Baritones ?. And eventually I would like to listen some more Baritone Anglos.
