  1. Ah...but wouldn't there have to be a right and a wrong way of playing for a judge to judge in a competition?
  2. You going to use it as an improptue shield? lol!
  3. Can I just ask what is a Xerox shop? I'd probably just draw/paint a design by hand then scan it in use photoshop to tidy it up and duplicate and then print it out. Unless it has to be on a certain type of paper?
  4. All instruments. I may even take my swanee whistle Al Are you going to bring a kazoo too? Then you could have a game of swanee/kazoo.
  5. Still working on this tune The Navy Lark Theme http://www.onmvoice.com/play.php?a=12673 Been trying since I heard Ralphie's version.
  6. I look forward to seeing the video. Well if you've got the music balanced on your lap where else are you supposed to put your concertina when your arms get tired?
  7. It's not a skill reserved only for playing by ear. If you're tied into reading music you can't afford to start looking at your instrument! I can't understand how looking at the buttons of a concertina would be much help for anyone, mainly because the ends face in opposite directions, so you can only look at one end at any one time. Very restricting, especially on an English Once I know I've got my fingers in the right place at the start I don't look at the ends....I can even play with it balanced on my head.
  8. Spot on. It's the local name. I've long harboured a desire to start a band called the BoA Constrictors ... Chris Not feather Boa then? I've got a red feather Bradford lol! Wouldn't the feathers get stuck in the bellows?

    Jane Austen

    So is there any 'Jane Austen' related/themed tunes that I could play on a C/G Anglo Concertina? I know they mentioned several tunes on the 'Jane Austen's I-pod' that was on the radio the other week....but I can't remember them and its not on listen-again any more.
  11. Well, there you go. Weve lived 9 miles from Bath for the last 20-odd years and we'd missed this completely. Annoying since I'm a bit of a closet Janeite. I'll look out for it. Cheers, Chris *curtseys* I always plan to go then never get round to it. Been looking at outfits and everything this year though. Trying to get a group of us to go so I can go self catering and share the cost.
  12. I know that the Jane Austen Festival takes place in Bath http://giftshop.janeausten.co.uk/acatalog/Regency_Promenade.html I think its usually around september, because I've been wanting to go to it for ages.
  13. I kinda fancied trying duet when I first was looking at concertina's but several factors put me off. a) it was my first go at squeezable instruments with buttons so I was inclined to be clueless so went for what I thought would give me the most chance of finding teachers, plus I liked the bouncy sound. I had no idea where (in my ignorance) I could find a new 'cheap' duet as I had a habit of picking up instruments getting bored/fustrated after a week and putting them in the back of a cupboard. I'd still like to have a proper go on one as there's something that just appeals to me about them. never been taught to type but I can go superspeed when typing my own thoughts...hence the speedy replies on forums. lol!
  14. You can play some nice music on a 20 penny Anglo. Alternatively, you could borrow a few extra keys from your one row melodeon, or perhaps do a bit of busking! Very good; obviously braver than me, over the weekend. I already did borrow from the melodeon. I found it really hard to do the handstrap so used a twig. lol! Its all melting now.
  15. I decided to use the snow. I know the buttons aren't exactly correct but I didn't have enough pennies
  16. Read the title and though it was a post about a new 'Carry-on' film set in an airport. lol! 'Carry on Luggage'
  17. I agree; I walked 10 miles, yesterday, in snow up to 6 inches deep. It took me 5 hours to thaw out, when I got home! http://www.geograph....k/photo/1651448 Hey, Peter what about some tunes from you then? Are you going to come around to record me? If so, I'll have to remember where I left the concertina. After the trouble I had getting to yours for the workshop with a full train service operating and good weather...erm...no. (have you not got that new computer sorted yet?) Where did you put it last? Surely there's not many places to look?

  19. We'll have to pile snow up against the door so you can't get out and have to record some more.
  20. Doh! Just looked a bit closer its got one of those dots with a like through like its bee shot through the head with an arrow. Grrrr....that's me stuck then. I'll stick to the melodeon.
  21. Can you say that, here? I think so....gonna try it on concertina next.
  22. done that last evening. lol! Snow Dog.
