  1. Hi Gary Nice book it arrived Yesterday .I am already realising that I have been playing for a long time without taking full advantage of the right hand G row for the melody There are some interesting combinations of Harmony notes .One thing you say is John Watcham uses his little finger to play a (walking base line) .Which tunes in your opinion display this best . Thanks Bob
  2. Nice tune it reminded me of s Barrel organ playing so many notes from one instrument .What equipment do you use to record ?
  3. In a session I am ok if I start a tune .If someone else starts the tune even one I know I have difficulty playing along with it sometimes.
  4. Wondering why it is that I find it easier to Lead a Tune than follow a person playing even a tune I know.Am I no good at listening or what ?
  5. I play Anglo . Are you playing with other Bb instruments .If you are trying to accompany your singing you may be best to look for another version of the song eg https://chordu.com/chords-tabs-the-coast-of-high-barbary-id_0Zs-Zr95aw8 There are many other possibilites if you Googal the title. Bob
  6. Hi Peter your G/D seems to be a Jefferis System .I have a Wheatstone 34 button G/D and have worked out every Chord for the left hand(I doubt I will ever use them all ) . You may be able to adapt these chord charts to your concertina .any two buttons make a chord that includes the melody note you may be using for the tune . PS the forth picture includes chords I missed .Bob
  7. Seeing the Double Concertina case for sale reminded me to tell you about my purchase From Currys PC World UK .When I go out to play especially if I am in a parade .I carry my two concertinas C/G & G/D in this a Camera Bag its a Sanstrom Canvas Backpack cost £29.99 .It has room for two concertinas and lots of pockets for music ect. Although its shower proof , I would cover it if it was raining .I dont keep my concertinas in this bag at home I have another stronger case .I have reduced two pictures below. Bob
  8. I found the site and booked up .Just hope now that travel restrictions and contact are lifted in time.Bob
  9. I Have joined Zoom but I am not the cleverest when it comes to computers .I would welcome any further tips on how to use it .Thanks bob
  10. Here in Cornwall its the same with lots of empty shelves in the super markets.I have tried playing my concertina but without the need to practice prior to a performance seams to make it harder .I am sure I will get used to it . There are many musicians stuck at home and when the weather improves we are going to meet two meters apart in the local park for a session .Unless its banned.
  11. Are you coming to the UK for 2020 and do you have a programme ? Bob
  12. Yes been there done that.Its not obvious what to do so I have sent him an E Mail
