  1. JimLucas, I wrote my answer very short In Spain copy right issues are for seventy years... after the death. In the ancient law, copy right issues were for eighty years after the death. https://es.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anexo:Derecho_de_autor_en_España In English: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_law_of_Spain
  2. In Spain, copy right issues are for seventy years. You cannot use music (or text) to get money, but you can use it for teaching, for example
  3. Happy Chritsmas from Spain! I whish that next year bring us a lot of music, especially concertina music
  4. Each instrument is a world. I think it is no possible to compare differents instruments like concertina, melodeon or other accordion or instrument because they were made for different kind of music, different kind of dances, different kind of songs and different culture. We can play many songs and play in different styles. However, there are song taht sounds better with concertina, and there are tunes that sounds better played in other instrument. But we can play them, of course. And we can try to get an own style of playing, I think this is very important.
  5. Hello, friends! Last weekend, we made a little Irish party at home. We were six persons (three couples), and each couple had to play some Irish songs (or, at least, a celtic theme). This is difficult for us, because we paly other kind of music (folk music, but not Irish music). But, finally, we played some Irish and celtic songs. We gived ourself the name of "The Mirobrigans" (near my village there was an ancient city called Mirobriga) and, with concertina, we played the famous song "Si beagh si mhor", and this was the result: http://youtu.be/-kS2_kXhYus
  6. Wow! What a wonderful pictures! I have got only a little Höhner D40/9 with twenty buttons, but I love it! The picture is the same that my profile picture.
  7. Congratulations and welcome, Jeff! The world of concertina music is a wonderful world. Now, enjoy your new instrument! Greetings from Spain!
  8. Hello, Defra! First of all, thank you very much for your reply. I live in the province of Salamanca, near Portugal, and in Salamanca we play especially three hole flute and tabor (gaita y tamboril) and, in the village where I live, square drum (pandero cuadrado). In Asturias, where this tune is played, usually is the bagpipe (gaita de fole) the principal instrument. Thank you very much, Dean / Merci beacoup, Dean
  9. Hello, friends! This is my last concertina video (by the moment). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-j9Ng5vgOxY
  10. I have only a Höhner D40/9m and I am playing it for five years. In the future, I expect toy get a new concertina (but I don't now what model), and I expect cotinue playing contertina, of course, because... I love it!
  11. Hello, friends! I've asked for links of traditional songs from Spain played with concertina. I have some videos in my Youtube channel. These are the links: CHARRADA DEL HERRERO (traditional from Salamanca) LA ADELAIDA (traditional from the ancient Kingdom of León): LOS PAJARITOS (traditional from Spain): RIANXEIRA (traditional from Galicia): I'll put more videos in the future.
  12. Well, I use to play traditional Spanish songs from Asturias, Galicia, Salamanca (ancient Kingdom of León),... In Youtube there are a lot of traditional tunes from Spain and Portugal that are very interesting to play with any instrument (including concertina, of course).
  13. How can I write "Happy St. Patrick's Day" in Irish?
  14. Hello, Guys! Happy St. Patrick's Day! I wish you a very good day with a lot of music... and beer Greetins from Spain!
  15. I play concertina since 2007; I play "Gaita y tamboril" (pipe and tabor) since 1996; I play "dulzaina", tin whistle, "Pandero cuadrado" (square drum),... I think that I am a musician, but I think I am a begginer because I can learn a new tune, a new song, a new thing everyday.
  16. Hello, guys! I had no put any new video long time ago, but... I have a new video of concertina in Youtube! It's the same kind of last video, anglo concertina with guitar. This is the link: Greetings from Spain!
  17. My first tune? mmmm With my concertina, I was trying to play any tune and finally I "composed" a new tune (very easy to play) to learn the notes of my D40/9. The first really tune was "El Garrotín", a traditional song from Asturias (Spain). With other instruments... With "gaita y tamboril" (three hole flute and tabor) I think was "La Montaraza", a traditional tune from Salamanca, that I learn from my great master Amador. The first tune I learned myself was other traditional tune from Salamanca, "Torero tira la capa" or "Alborada de Peñaparda" (is the same tune with two names). With "dulzaina"... I think that was "En Sevilla un sevillano" or "La doncella guerra" (is the same tune with different names too). With my Irish tin whistle... "Old McDonalds Farm". These are the instruments that I can say that I can play. I have other instruments in my house, but I am still learning. In each instrument, alwais is exciting to learn a new song.
  18. I think innovation is necessary. All traditional tunes were new songs before. They were innovation many years ago.
  19. Hello, friends! This topic is very hot, WOW! All the opinions are very interesting, and there are many, many opinions. My last time in the forum was a week ago, and there are many new opinions sice that day. First of all, the other Spanish in the forum (fergus_fiddler) has reason when he says that perhaps the language or translation are a problem sometimes. The level of Spanish in English language is very poor. I "speak" English 25 years ago... and today is very difficult for me. In these few lines I've used my English-Spanish / Spanish-English 2 or 3 times. I'm sure that sometimes is difficult for you read our posts because we don't use some words and expressions in the correct form. Well, respect in the matter of Celtic Music, I think that this is a label. The Celts, like Celt People, dissapeared in time of romans. Well, this is not correct. The Celt People, with his own culture and traditions stayed on into the Roman Empire and, later, in some places for many centuries. But his culture and traditions were pursued by the staments of Power in all the Middle Age and Modern Age. So, today Celtic Culture is a little part of was the Celtic Culture in the past, and the Celtic People has dissapeared under the modern countries, without conscience like a only one People. This pursuit still continue in all the countries, all the continents, all the cultures and all the peoples. However, the label of "Celtic" today is very important and, that is more important for "money lovers", today everything with the label "Celt" can do win a lot of money a some people, and the put Celtic Label a many things that nothing have to see with authentic celtic culture or traditions. What are the rest of Celtic Culture today? Pipes? Perhaps, but not necessary. There are many kinds of Pipes in the world, even in Europe. In Spain, we have: gaita gallega (from Galicia), gaita asturiana (from Asturias), gaita sanabresa (from Zamora); gaita alistana (from Zamora); gaita aragonesa (from Aragón);... and many other pipes in all the cornes in the country, even in Mallorca (Illes Balears). And all the pipes different. The Celts were in Spain (well, not in Spain, in the land of we call Spain today), but not in all the territory, only in the North of the Península Ibérica (sorry, I don´t know the name of this in English). Really is very difficult to say what is Celtic. I think we must to speak for Celtic Lands (or something in this style), because is impossible find something that we can say: I'm sure that it's Celtic. Other question. I was reading your posts and I don't understand one thing: what is ITM? Cheers. José Benito "tamborileru"
  20. It's funny! This is the same question (more or less) than we have in other forum from a traditional instrument. Really, the people that can read music sheets is a little number if we compare it with the number of people that cannot read music. However, today is higher the number of people that can read music sheets, and this is why this question appear in this kind of forums. By ear or by sheets? This is the question. In the past traditional musicians learned to play instruments by ear. Nobody could read music, and the players only could play a few of themes that the learned listening other traditional musicians. Today, the musicians that can read music can play hundreds, or thousands, or millions of different songs. They only have to read thant is writen in the sheet. If we read this, the first impression is that is better read music that play by ear, because you can play a lot of different themes, much more themes than with the traditional way. But I don't think so. Certainly, reading music sheets you can play thousands of songs. But that you win in number of themes, that you lose of "freedom" when you play. And you lose too in personal style. Traditional musicians alwais have their own way of play, always a personal style, different from the style of other traditional musicians. And this differences of styles is one of the things that make spetial the traditional music. If all we play the same and with the same style, what is that is have of wonderful? Another advantage from traditional music is this: the traditional musicians that learn by ear can play in every situation because the have the song into his head. However, many musicians (not all the musicians, of course) that learn by sheets play the themes wonderful... if the have the sheets, but they can't play whitout the sheets. In the past, I tried to play reading music, but for my this way was very bored. I prefer to play by ear. I prefer to play a few themes and to have my own style. It's ¿more funny? (sorry, I don't know this expression is correct).
