  2. STILL ONE OR TWO PLACES AVAILABLE! John Kirkpatrick Anglo Concertina Course. Friday August 31st - Sunday September 2nd at The Gleanings, Minsterley, Shropshire. www.gleanings.co.uk John & Yvonne Hart - yj.hart@virgin.net 01743 891412 This three day course is aimed at helping players of the Anglo concertina discover the full musical potential of their instrument. John will be looking at all the various technical aspects of playing, but will mostly be exploring what can be found in the way of chords and harmonies in the left hand to support melodies in the right hand. This is all very physical stuff, and teaching will be in terms of patterns and finger memory, rather than a more abstract intellectual approach. Although a broad grasp of the complexities of music will naturally grow out of the work involved, the ability to read musical notation is by no means essential, and may in fact be a hindrance! The sessions may not be suitable for complete beginners, and as they are very specific to the instrument they will not be suitable for players of the other kinds of concertina either - the English or the Duet. And please note - the small twenty button Anglo will not be adequate for this course.You'll need an Anglo concertina with not less than thirty buttons, and ideally a keyboard chart of what all the buttons are. If you haven't got a chart, John will help you to knock one up, and, thus equipped, whether your interest is in beefing up your tune playing or adding floating parts to accompany your favourite song, Mr Kirkpatrick will be able to bring a lifetime's experience to bear and help you along the way.

    Thank you for the response

  4. OK - I've tried adding Chrods - I think Chords will be much easier!
