  1. This alternative "fingering for the English Concertina in whole tones" derives from the fingering of the chromatic Salzburger Hackbrett (dulcimer) which was invented 1927 by Tobi Reiser. The obvious advantage is that the notes of the different octaves stay on their original side, on the same point every octave two lines higher. This is only an idea. I have limited experience with the chromatic dulcimer, no experience with this concertina - fingering. Maybe there is some stimulation for some of you. Juergen fingering concertina.pdf
  2. Here an arrangement of this nice song. Humperdinck Hänsel und Gretel Abendsegen engl.pdf
  3. Is there a quality difference between Morse and Concertina Connection English Concertinas like the Rose English Concertina?
  4. Thank you Dan. This was very helpfull indeed. Juergen
  5. Hi Dan Sounds superb and looks marvelous. As you are selling your ECs there is a feeling for me as saying "good-bye playing EC". Can you tell us why you are changing EC for the C2. Do you want to play other sort of music which may be more difficult with the EC. As a EC player myself I ask what may be your personal reason for this change. Would you answer this? Juergen
  6. [quote name[code]='Mike Maddux' timestamp='1294204420' post='120426'] I have considered the Hybrid and many other keyboard layouts. I don't like the look of the Hybrid and the fact that you push and pull with your arms instead of wrist and/or hand. The Hayden model would allow you to have your thumb outside the strap which would presumably give you the type of bellows control that you need to play tango. I've never tried the Hayden, but it looks like it would be physically easier than the CBA system which is used in the Hybrid and also the other popular chromatic keyboard - the Peguri. I could easily be wrong about that. I'm coming from piano accordion and the Hayden seems to offer some similarities in finger motion to the piano keyboard. No thumb in use, but it seems like the fingers don't get in each other's way when playing scales, whereas they kind of do on the CBA system. So the real answer is that I don't really know for sure! I'm also considering the Atzarin, but, like the Hayden, it doesn't exist yet... Right now I'm taking lessons on the traditional Argentine system, but I'm finding it to be a steep learning curve to say the least. Mike [/code] [quote name='koeter' timestamp='1294182190' post='120412'] If one considers a Bandoneon -why only Hayden-Layout? I guess there are only few Hayden players for whom the Hayden-Bandoneon would be an easy task. As I play EC I´d learn from new the Hayden Layout as well the Geuns hybrid C-System. And the Chinese Hybrid is on the market for under 1000 Euro which is also refundable when upgrading??? [/quote] [/quote] [hr] I understand that the concertinists as myself are used to play the buttons upward instead of the more horizontal orientation in the accordions. What do you think about the following layout? Layout C System combined für Concertina.pdf
  7. Nice arrangements! Would it be possible to have the sheets on the forum, perhaps in pdf? Cheers
  8. Interesting Duet on Ebay. Artickle 300270122884
  9. Hi to all, Are there differences in quality, sound between these two? If you look for a high end quality treble EC, which would you recommend? Juergen
  10. Well good of you to say that but now please explain what you mean and give examples that we can all listen to. Also explain clearly what you think are the differences between an English concertina and a Duet concertina. In particular give us examples of counterpoint played on other sorts of concertinas. I play a crane duet and feel pretty comfortable in saying I'm aware of most of the instrument's abilities and limitations. A couple of years ago, Bertram Levy convinced me that there was nothing musically significant a duet could play that an anglo couldn't. I can't speak to English personally, but there is a recent post ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Joi-J8ywORE&fmt=18 ) on another Cnet forum. This person is playing the hymn "Abide With Me" in what sounds to me as four parts. I'd say that would count as an example of counter point. More, it is the sort of thing one thinks of as the providence of the duet. These which-concertina-is-good-for-what discussions do not make much sense once you get on and get going with them. An old photographer friend once told me that no matter what camera you have, if you take the best pictures the camera will take, you will have some really good photographs. I expect that concertinas are about the same. I like this hymn played with a baritone EC. Attached Abide With Me bearb.pdf there is an arrangment of this music - hard work for me to play . Juergen
  11. If any is interested in a Morse Baritone the mine is still on sale. Look at "For sale Morse Baritone EC". The price at Music Room is now £2,099.00. What would be a fair price? Juergen
  12. For sale: Morse Albion Baritone English Concertina bought from The Music Room in 7/2009, Serial No. 709. Condition excellent, with original hard case. The price was then GBP 1899.-. Would sell it for 1450 GBP + shipping from Austria. Reason for selling the Morse is a fine Baritone Aeola I got the lucky owner of. Send a mail if interested. Juergen
  13. Hi Tony, You have allready read my remark in the Tenor / Alto EC thread. For the other interested I repeat it: "Why changing the instrument instead of transposing the pieces 5 notes down which is easily performed with the help of an inexpensive notation program? Juergen
