    starting anglo concertina

    I have to disagree: The Levy and Coover books are not really set up for playing in the "Irish" style but more toward the "English" I am not familiar with the "Concertina Diaries" but did look over the free pages and disagree with some of the fingering choices but those choices can be a very personable thing. . The Online Academy of music is a good start and if you could attend a Noel Hill class or workshop that would get you going in the right direction.

    The Man - Greg Jowaisas

    Hi Wolf, Greg is in the states and so is Mike so no issues as far as customs goes.
  7. Once again Greg tweaked up my Suttner. I'm pretty picky and Greg worked with me to resolve the small issues that were bothering me. I'm in love with my instrument again. If you need your instrument worked on there is no better craftsman then Greg. Doug
  8. Oh Dan it is probably to far gone, but I will take it off your hand for $100....no more troubles!

    You live in Ireland! Get some help right away. It should be easy to find someone that will get you going in the right direction.

    Using My Little Finger

    I agree with Jody......don't do it....don't shy away from something that seems hard right now.....I know you want to progress fast but you must realize it takes a long time. Progress will be slow(it is for all of us) but do it correctly! You will thank yourself later. What tune are you trying to play that is giving you trouble. I find that most adult try to play tunes to hard for them. If this is so, put it aside and come back to it a year from now to see how it goes. Some tune just don't work on the anglo. Have fun! Doug
