Chatty concertinist

Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. She plays the bandoneon better than I ever plan to, so cheers there. ? I suspect that her musicianship is adequate to many purposes, but I agree that this is not a flattering style for Bach. I think that's some of the reason I can't stand Glenn Gould's take on the Goldberg Variations that everyone raves about.
  2. I'm not very optimistic about your chances. I expect the resistivity of the glue dots at least (if not the Saran wrap!) to interfere with the capacitive touchscreen operation. Do let us know if it ends up working-- that will be interesting news!
  3. The nice thing about counting the ridges is that you can see them all even with the bellows closed. So they're a particularly natural thing to count.
  4. Nah, Englishes have their outside rows aligned with the inside rows. This looks more like the Stark/Chromatiphon duet that Wim Wakker makes.
  5. The silly eye-roll made me uncertain. =) In your computer's defense, it is a single-reeded sound, where most of the accordions are a little wet.
  6. I can't tell whether you're joking, but that's totally a harmonica.
  7. Are you working the bellows ... improperly? What makes you think so? Are you getting particular results that you wish were different in some way?
  8. Until somebody finds a straighter youtube link, here's what I'm using to imagine what we're talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvTnpbERuOg
  9. Reminds me a bit of the neckstrap arrangement that Wim Wakker uses and advocates. Though I suppose there's a chance you could aggravate your cervical spine whilst you placate your traditionalist public. =)
  10. Some Englishes from back in the day had red C's, but you can usually get a pretty good idea of where you are from where the thumbs anchor you.
  11. I think Greg Jowaisas tends to have a few of those on hand. You might be able to spare yourself the rigors of transatlantic shipping and currency conversion.
  12. I have 13, 14, 17, 18, 19 and 21. If any of those are missing bits, I might be able to scan them for you.
  13. "Notes" here are what we would call "reeds". "Screwed" would refer to the method by which the reeds were attached to the frames.
  14. The thumb mark from where the owner has evidently been holding it backwards?
  15. Yeah, the tune-o-tron doesn't do it either. But I was confident that somebody would support it, because it's in the standard: http://abcnotation.com/wiki/abc:standard:v2.1#clefs_and_transposition
