  1. Very good! Thank you very much Boney! I didn't know about this, first time I see. I never met this kind of songs in the irish trad, but from now on I will be ready. I recognise you from youtube! good videos, you play concertina very well. I have the feeling that I'm going to learn a lot about concertina and music in general in this forums. Good! All the best! Fernando
  2. The song is called Dilín Ó Damhsa, well known in Ireland, they teach this song to the children in the school. Even irish people that are not into traditional music may know this song. I strongly believe this song could be in a compound time signature. I would love to confirm this with someone. I have my own opinion as how it could be the time signature: I think each part, that is played only once, has the following structure: - Two bars at a 9/8 (slip jig) - One bar at a 12/8 (slide) - One bar at a 9/8 (slip jig) But I'm not sure, I don't have much theory of music. But I'm pretty sure there is something funny with the ryhthm. And this is the first time I see something like this in Irish Traditional Music, a pure traditional tune with not a fixed time signature! If anyone could give me a hand on this would be vey much appreciated
  3. Fernando, spaniard living in Galway, Ireland I play english concertina, irish and spanish music. I'm taking concertina lessons with Noel Hill, and I am the only one with the english system! And I'm not going to change because since I saw Simon Thoumire playing I will always have hope. I love to play in all the keys I can, even the really uncommon ones, english concertina is well suited for that. If there are more english concertinas in Ireland I want to meet them! (Rick Epping and Mick Kinsella are a bit too high level for me)
  4. Realy good site indeed! thanks! they have it very well organised. I like the tune searcher, because there is an option that allows you to choose the country and another for the time signature, nice!
