  2. Hi Marien I recently found this page on the internet. Maybe it is useful for you? AP
  3. Just use the "attachments" option. This options also works for non-VIP's :-)
  4. IReally like your Miss Hamilton playing. How many times do you repeat the tune and are the dots the same as the version on Thesession.org ??

  5. Hi Hillsider There is no such thing as a default pattern for playing the scale of D on a C/G concertina. On some C/G concertinas C# can only be played in the push-direction and on some in the push as wel as the pull direction. On top of that almost all notes on the D scale can be played in the push or pull direction. It is more or less dependant on the tune you are playing and on your own preferences which cross row pattern you need. It's a matter of trial and error and/or exploring your anglo... AP
  6. Hello Raide, Have a look at this page and more specific the tutor that is mentioned on the page. There is also an ABC editor that prduces the tablature for Anglo concertina. Have a look at this page: http://members.quicknet.nl/j.coolegem/abcedit/intro.html Have fun
  7. Could it be the "splendid isolation" of the UK
  8. Marien Thanks for your latest reply. I've sent you a PM AP
  9. Hi Marien I tried to PM you, but received the following message: BTW: Which dots did Jim send?
  10. Scott, You're absolutely right! I checked "The Session" on "Blackhall Rocks" and found this tune that completely fits. On top of that it is mentioned that the tune originally was derived from a tune "The Ruffian's Rant" which is a.o. also known as: "Roy's Wife (of Aldivalloch)". For details see this page from the Fiddlers Companion. So Jim was not wrong and Scott is right.. Thanks
  11. That must be the tune I was looking for !! It must have been more than 30 years ago that I heard the tune for the first time played by The Battlefield Band (??), but this is for me the tune I was looking for. Thanks Jim!
  12. The tune attached just popped up in my brain. It must be about 30 years ago when I heard this tune played by a Northumbrian piper in a band. I forgot the name of the band, but he title of the tune had some relation with "west wind". can anybody help me?? w-wind.mp3
  13. Hi Bill, What do you mean with English style: English style of music using an Anglo Concertina Using an English Concertina for any type of music
  14. Dear Gavin, I am not "in the area" but I would like to see and hear you and Julie. However, there are oceans between us and even in your Micromouse it will take about two years to make it..... So, you better announce the event much earlier or start to to publish "how to build your plane" AP
  15. Do'nt worry Richard. There is a good chance that your playing will be even better.
  16. Just discovered a nice collection of airs etc. at this page Enjoy
  17. Is it this tune?? http://abcnotation.com/tunePage?a=www.banjolin.co.uk/banjolin12/music/tunes/abcs/adieulesfille/0000
  18. Not really "haunting" but very very nice indeed... my compliments to both of you!!
  19. A nice collection can be found at: http://anglo-concertina.net/tunes/
  20. Hi Jess In order to give you a good advice, it is interesting to know if the repertoire that you like to play (Irish traditional) matches your father's repertoire. In other words: up till now I never saw duet concertina's used for Irish trad. music. When ITM really is "your thing", you should go for a 30+ button Anglo!

  22. Received this e-mail today: Do'nt know why I received this e-mail, but feel very privileged!
  23. Hi Jim, I'm not an experienced Irish session player but I know that having a C# on the push and the pull is very convenient for playing ITM. Your choice should be C/G. For me there are still some tunes for which I prefer the G/D (like Drowsy Maggie and other E Dorian E minor stuff), but in general (80%) I prefer the C?G over the G/D. enjoy your new concertina!!
  24. Very lovely tune Chris. The first two bars really have a jolly gardeners atmosphere!
  25. Hi David Thanks for the effort you have put in your answer re: Drowsy Maggie. Your suggestions below are very useful. I wonder why you are not considering the A: push, first finger, accidental row. I know that you should use your second finger for this button, but it is not really difficult to do. More interesting for me is how you play the first bar with the E B E d E B E sequence. My guess (fwiw) is that you better use a GD concertina for a tune like this (unless your Anglo has so may extra buttons that it is almost an EC after a serious accident ).
