  13. Henk, I only discovered this post today. Thanks for the nice tune. I plan to come to Germany from the 22th of March untilabout the 5th of April. Would like to meet you at least one evening and play together. And would like to record on MD the tunes you have recently published here. And to look with you about the REcording software. And to play you a nice Polka set, I am learning in these moemnts. And to play a tune, where in order to achieve the speed, I had aslo to learn to play using all three rows. Tah we can compete who plays it quicker, and drink a beer. Will it be possible ? Joachim
  14. Lisa, I am teaching to my daughtetr, whoi is now 9 years old, and we staareted ehen she has been 7. I am also teaching to my grandson who is 6 years old. My daughter stareted with an old, and cheap German Corcertina 20 buttons. I simpy changed the leather bands, shortening them. Now she has got a nice 20 button Stagi C-1, nicely finished and of sweet sound, I enjoyu to play, coming even with leather bellos for a reasonable price. There is coming an old Lachenal, whioch I must try to repair for her. The Granson has started this year with a Chrismas Present, also a Stagi , made in plastic, and coloured blue, red or yellow, amde for kids. It is no toy. It can be really used for starting with a 5/56 old kid. This one cost here in Europe about 150 Euros, or about 180 - 185 US$. Have a look to Stagis website toi see the models I mention : www.brunnermusica.com The model I mean, has the number PL-4-2 and is announced as a "special concertina for children". Kind regards Joachim
  15. Hi all, have been very busy these days trying to make the money for a living and more Coincertina stuff. So I gort aware late about this thread. Excellent !! Thank you Al, thank you Henk and thanks to all contributior. Up to a certain point it is a satisfaction me thjinkiong that all this is related to the thread I posted in December, "Interchanging Music, Learning, TEaching adn Making Friends". By the other hand it seems that this kind of ideas were anyway floating in the air. However, great that this project may came to bea realityy. Now I understand Henkm, why you could not answer to my qustion how to use the recording software. I shall find out with patience. A pitty, that I cxannot help with the organisation and more than any with the computer stuff. It costed me about 30 - 45 minutes to read all the contributions. Imagine ! But it has been worthwhile. Here a short resum, what I woould like to find in this new page : 1. Music perforwemd by us ourselfes at any level. 2. Encouragement to Bweginners to makje us listen their incipient playing and read there questions. 3. Tutor recording, I mean : We have Alln's recordings I have a Tutor Cd from Henk, which I guess he would not mind to shatre with opthers And I mysefl I am preparing withthe help of my friend Mike Murphy, who lives in Spain some tapes, recorded at learning speed, intermedium speed and real speed. ACtuallay a very enjoyable Polka Set, but also other Irish Music. I got a Tutor MD from a known Player, in order to learn from his Cds. Askinmg him, asking opthers, I risk to say that there is a chance that we might get other material. I think to listen nice Music, performed on Concertinas, in general , we would not reallyh need thios project. But to to know each opther better and getting to be friends and to learn from each other, this what really makes sense to me. I think it should be even possible that somebody comes up with teh question : I would like to leatrn to play this and this tune, who is willing to play it for and record and send to this new page, so me and others can learn it. But nobody should get this "stuff" if not willibng to present after a certain time the results of the efforts done by the one who helps and the one whjo has asjked for. Me individually already I am "pressing, begging" a number of persons to do this for me and I have got some results. I have got music from Jim Lucas, when he visited me about a couple of yuears ago in Spain, an a kind of tutor tape. Tunes he composed himself and perforemd on huis English system Concertina and after trting it ion my anglo over the rows without a real succes, no I ghave learned thanks to him, to play across the rows, and can achieve an acceptable speed and give the real character to the tune. Well from the four he has gfiven to me, I learned only one correctly up to now, but go ahead with opthers. It has been a great experience, which I think would be very inttersting to share with other beginners or slightly advamced beginenrs. For me it has been a "key" or "cruciakl" experiebnce, opneing me the dorfrs for much more. And weithout this help, I think It would have takem me a lot of more time to reach there. Now I start to apply this expereince on other tunes. mixing as it intersts me the over the rows push-`pull style and continuos phrasing. I think you undertand that I s do not really want to speak abnout myself, but explain the exprerience, I think could be very valuable for others. And I feel qyuite enthusiastic about this GREAT project. Henk, I guess it will keep you busy ! Whats your ipinion P.D. : I thought already to open my onw Homepage for the purpose. Once the project comes to be reality, it should be published on the General Discussioopn Foprum, inviting people to share the experience . THOUSAN THANKS !!
  16. Me too !!, Congratulations Morgana. Yes that's fun ! After playing around on my Concertina for about two years now, I amking the experience you are telling here. Each day easier to catch the tunes by listening recordings ! And as you say different fingerings, come eeasy, relatibvely ! I am learning actuallay on four differnt tunes I got by a friend abuot 18 months ago, he plñayed on the English system Coincertina, quite fast and fluently, Than I learend to play those tunes over the row, pushing and pyulling all the time, but never I could achieve the necesary speed and the real character. Now I use all three rows and I got it ! I hope I can record them and bring them to the Tunes & Sopngs Forum in a next future, but I must ask for allowance to the friend and composer of thos tunes. Would be very interesting to disccus the nig numbetrs of fingerings possible and to explain to those who still have not found the way. Hope I can share it with you all soon. Regards Joachim Kids : steady and constant effort and dedications leads to cuccess !, I hve been told as boy and now I can see iti is really ture ç Joachim
  17. Henk, if you organize something, please advise this friend too. Would love to come, too. Thanks Joachim
  18. Alan, thank you. Actually I am busy with Irish Music, since I am invited to play for Irish Seta Dancers. But no coubt I shall come back to your tutor and you will listen some resutl of my practicing. It is a big enjoyment to listen you playing. Henk, thanks for the advise where to find Alans Music,quite helpful for some folks.......as for me for example. I promis you you will very soon listen something I am preparing. Kind regards Joachim Delp
  19. Geo, I own a 40 button G/D Bastari and shall try to prepare fotos and mail to you if you allow. Thank you for your efforts writing thes repair advices for the Stagis. I recommend to contact Bob TEdrow, who has some advices for this matter and once had in his wb an article witing about upgrading Stagis. I could not find it today. But he should certainly have a copy. I use to be in contact with Piero Stagi and hope to meet him next at Frankfiurts Music Trade Fair and could speak with for more photos and better photos. If you allow, that I try this. It would be a pleasure to cpontribute in some degree to your initiative, for which I thank you once more. As soon I have your conformity, I shall contact Mr. Stagi. Kind regards Joachium Delp
  20. Bob, Congratulations ! It looks great, "wonderful". Perhaps it is not polite, but I see, that you have improved your makeing, from what I have known about two years ago, and I liked thos instrumetns too. But this is better. Would like top know how it plays. Kind regards Joachim Delp
  21. Bravo Jim ! Or ask me ! Accordeon is taught in San Sebastin in the Conservatorio de Musica and there are excellent Players. There used to be World Champions, but even now there are young players succesful in International Competitions. More popular is the Trikitxa, the Basque Melodeon and they know to handle it. And as Ken says, we know to celbrate fiests. Kind regards
  22. Hi Henk, today finally IU found some time to listen Tune-O-Tron and mp3. Well pñlayed. I almost hve learned, but than my Concertina makes problems. A Key sticking. Have sort it out in the evening. But thank you for placing the tume : Nice, easy and joyful and you helpful ! Thans and regards Joachim

Mach's gut "
  24. Henk, thank you very much. Joachim Hope to find the time to learn it soon
  25. Al, I take yoir comments as a lesson. Always learning from you. In any case I am not so far away to come to the ppoint where you are. I do not referring to your plñaying skill. There I doubt that ever I can arrive. Waiting for listening and enjoying your new tune. If I would not understand that your are in love with music and your concertinas, I would ask you are worried about Alzheimer ? In any case it should be a good training for your brains and it shuld help to prevent it. As I always knew, the Concertina is recommendable for many reasons !! I wait for your tune. Thank you ! Joachim
