  1. Over the past few weeks one of my thumbs has started sliding too deep into the loop on my concertina. Moving to the next hole in the strap makes it too small. What are some good techniques for getting a tighter fit?
  2. Didn't a concertina also figure prominently in a recent pirate themed game too?
  3. CEG is usually the tight triangle in one hand. CGE might be, the lower CG on the left, and then the E on the right above that.
  4. Here's some different flavors: Kulning - Ancient Swedish herding call trombone and of course, accordion
  5. Mutopia is a repository for lilypond music; the idea is to transcribe public domain music into lilypond so it's focused more on (older) classical music. The other repository that I can think of is MuseScore - -- I think that this application uses lilypond "under the hood", but is its own music engraving program.
  6. Wait, I thought that Bob is your uncle.
  7. The way she's working the bellows makes me think that they removed the reeds.
  8. Used purely as decor in this Bishop Briggs video (~0:40 in) https://youtu.be/bqsiJPK-94Q
  9. They're soo in the money, that they can just toss them aside without a care.
  10. And another Canada Board Cartoon Log Driver's Waltz
  11. Trailer for a new movie about Dickens: https://youtu.be/UxcnYR3mcPU
  12. I think it is a bit more than just mechanical, especially for someone completely new to music. Playing scales and arpeggios allows you to associate the muscle movements with the sounds in the context of a key. Yes, tunes do this too, but then you to divide your focus between multiple aspects of the music. Presumably, for some people this focused aspect is helpful, for others it may be unnecessary.
