  2. I'm only just now seeing this thread. Thanks for the kind words with regards to my development over the past few years, Bertram. It has been an honor and a pleasure to be able to work from your advanced tutor and then interact directly by skype. Whatever I have gained as a musician, I owe directly and overwhelmingly to the combination of your book (which, sadly, has never been understood or heralded, as far as I can discern, as the indispensable paradigm shifting game changer it truly is) and the skype correspondence.
  3. Mark Gilston, the great English system concertinist, does a splendid rendition of the tune. Are you familiar with his Swedish album "Troll Road?" It's a masterpiece (though, curiously, the gardeby ganglat is not featured therein). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq2KBrXprZ4
  4. A great little tune, isn't it? You're very fortunate to have learned it from David Kaynor; a first-rate musician and excellent source.
  5. Thanks. Are you really? I'd love to get together. I'm in Minneapolis (over by the Convention Center and the Electric Fetus). Feel free to drop me a line either through the message function here or via email (awestern@hotmail.com) or even on farcebook if you are so inclined (my name there and in the good old-fashioned real life is Andy Western) and perhaps we can carve out some time and space for a rendezvous in near future. Andy

  8. Remember Juliette Daum? She hasn't posted here in several years, but here's her Bach D minor Chaconne on English Concertina. This is absolutely stunning. Thanks so much for sharing.
  9. The mania continues!!!!!!!!! Well done, Wolf! A worthy addition to the community squeeze Bachs.
  10. Your marvelous Bach rendition definitely deserves its own thread, Mart! SUPERLATIVE!
  11. Thanks, Stuart. The D minor Chaconne will have to wait until I've managed to obtain an instrument with more than 30 buttons. Confined to 30 buttons, there are simply far too many instances where one runs into harmonizing notes that are only to be found in mutually exclusive bellows directions to the melodic notes, I'm afraid...
  12. Great stuff. As mentioned above, I'm sure too that Bach would have written for EC if it had been around. Great fun to play his stuff but does take some learning. Here is one of the Cello Suite bourees I recorded on the Baritone/Treble. It was a challenge mainly because I find the B/T takes so much more effort to control than the treble - actually quite hard work! cheers and Happy new year to all https://soundcloud.com/mart-bradley/bach-cello-suite-no3 Excellent rendition of the Bach, indeed! I discovered you on soundcloud the other day and have been enjoying your content. Your Handel is also splendid.
