  1. And one more thing --- It does pay to do a little light research before doing these things. If I would only have read THIS before creating the label copy, I wouldn't bumbled the number. Oh well. Live and learn..... and repeat the process.
  2. I just knew that somebody around here would notice that. Even as I was creating the .svg file in the previous post, I suspected that I'd have to catch a whoopin' for getting the address incorrect. And I do believe it is incorrect. Upon reviewing your much clearer photos, I believe that the correct address should be 350 because I basically just guessed while tracing the label shown at the Concertina Museum website. That image is neither very large nor particularly clear and so, faced with uncertainty, I pointed the mouse and pressed "fire". The file is easily corrected - I created it using Inkscape - and I will happily do so if consesus is that the number is 350. Or you are all free to download a copy and put in any number you like. It'll probably only matter to owners of Jones 'tinas but I enjoyed creating it on the sly when I was supposed to be working on boring routine design work.
  3. A reasonably clear scan of an existing Jones label can be had http://www.concertinamuseum.com/CM00343.htm here. Or if you'd like a cleaner scaleable version have a look at what I did here. and here
  4. Aaaaaiiiieeee! So close, and yet, so far. Your right here in the same state. But it's still over 200 miles. One way. Is there anybody further north?
  5. Very tempting. But I'd like to see a list of song titles....
  6. its real shame is it was my 'go to' place for ABC conversion. btw. yep I've been away for a while from cnet, but I'm back. lol Um, the Convert-o-Matic is still there, you know. If you hurry, you can still do tune searches and download via the Wayback Machine. use this: http://web.archive.org/web/20120813020642/http://www.concertina.net/tunes.html to access an old copy. The browse function still works, or if you know how to manipulate the URL's arguments, you can still search for keywords. Hint: play with adding/modifying this: ?action=search&keyword=trumpet (at the end of the link).
  7. You might try Smythe's Accordion Center in Oakland, though I'd suggest calling first to see what he's got in stock. Smythe's is a delightful place. And on my last visit he'd had a bulletin board listing all sorts of area happenings involving squeezy-box thingys. Sadly, I have yet to find anyplace between Oakland and Medford (Oregon) that even knows what a concertina is, let alone sells them.
  8. Actually, depending upon how you intend to present/publish this information, using plain-text XML might work better. It would be a relatively simple process to create a webpage with the video embedded in it along with the controls needed to sort/format & present the information. It would be cross-platform/browser independant and eliminate the need for Word or other proprietary software. Someone with a website would simply need to offer to host the page....
  9. Very, Very Nice! And extra points because it's one that I'm familiar with...
  10. Lookie heeree! Navigator - The Pogues (for the basic chords...)
  11. Fabulous! Flowers & Chocolates to both! "Snowflakes" is delightful and you two play beautifully!
  12. Old Cowboy tunes - by which I mean songs sung by old cowboys for old cowboys, and sometimes about old cowboys... Down In the Valley Streets of Laredo Back in the Saddle Again Tennessee Waltz Don't Fence Me In John Henry The Wabash Cannonball The Old Cowboy's Lament Tyin' a Knot In the Devil's Tail And some other stuff like: Trumpeteer's Lullaby - (see the Tune-O-Tron) Bolero (well, not yet, it's proven very complicated) Tu Fidelidad (a Spanish-language hymn)
  13. Not on a school night. Because it's way too far to drive there and back and I can't get the following day free. But I'd LOVE to see/hear that rag up close as it's the sort of thing I really dig. Maybe next time.
  14. What a world if only all the money spent on guns were spent on concertinas instead.
