  1. Pauline de sono it’s a great classical concertinaist. I took Skype lessons from here you can Goggle her —she is great
  2. Is anyone have any suggestions? When I'm playing piece of music and I sometime move off the wrong buttons notes on the English concertina I have a difficult time getting my fingers back to keys and lose my orientation on the buttons. Do any of you have hints tricks methods suggestions as how to do this without having to look at the buttons. It's almost like I wish some home keys hederacea spot on them or something. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you Stephentx

  7. Hi Greg,  I hope this note finds you well I tried to contact you via your email address but perhaps that has changed. As you could say I am back on and getting into the music again after having some thumb surgery and freeing up time as I still work full-time and my job but have made a determination to spend more time with my Music.   How are you doing would love to hear from you. 

  8. This might be a stupid question but it won’t be the first one I’ve ever asked. I have English concertinas (too many) after having a couple of hand surgeries I’m back to the form and back to studying to play again. The question I have is the comment that was made relative to the Anglo and what key you sing it. Is the angle similar to the English where you will have a bass and treble extended travel etc. to determine what key Or what range is the most comfortable for you as with the English as you all know you can play in multiple keys. Thanks you StephenTx
  9. Hello from Texas. I loved you song voice and accompaniment. What type of concertina were you playing? Do you by any chance have the arrangements of "The Town I loved so Well" and/or do you know when I can get the music. The other songs were great too. Thank you for sharing and please continue to do so. Stephen Knoll, Tyler Texas aka Stephentx

  11. John ... *blush* to say I am a classical concertinist....I am taking lessons from a classical concertinist! Pauline has taught me so much. I am able to read treble cleff (and I work hard at it the bass cleff) , learning a lot about timing and pacing but I drawing blanks on this whole chord thing. I buy music that has the guitar chords but cannot figure out how to make it work as there seems to be one or two chords for the entire measure...and I can't figure out how it works. To play the melody is boring ad to play the thirds (I believe it is called is the same). HELP is what I need I am not a music person I am in healthy care....so Im not dumb but do sem to be having block. The main purpose of why I took up the concertina was to use as vocal accompaniment. I have read what you have all posted in this thread but I am still having brain farts. (as we call them in Texas). Jim has reached out and I am going to contact him. A frustrated concertinist.

  12. Oh my goodness, how I have enjoyed this thread. I have been active for awhile, nursing back a shattered wrist....but I am back. I am an English player have taken Skype lessons from Pauline de Sono but I am trying t get to the point of vocal accompaniment as discussed In this discussion...alot of which is over my head with the music terms.. I need some help understanding chords and how to use them to accompaniment of my voice. Do any of you do lessons via Skype? StephenTX
  13. Thank you for sending the music. I am excited about coming this year. I am hoping you have good opportunities for us English players
