Civil War Concertina Book - Now Multimedia
gcoover posted a topic in Teaching and Learning"Civil War Concertina", the book with 60 songs and tunes from the American Civil War for 20-button Anglo concertina, now has video instruction, with links to YouTube videos for every tune! Although some folks think they look like robot barf (I prefer to think of them as grapeshot patterns in this instance), QR codes are an ideal way to link videos to the printed page. So instead of just telling people to search YouTube in the text, a quick scan with a smartphone will now bring up a video so you can hear and see how the printed arrangement is played. "Christmas Concertina" for 30-button Anglo was also recently updated to 100% video instruction as well. Both are available through the Button Box and Amazon.com in the US, UK and Europe. And yes, I still need to update "Anglo Concertina in the Harmonic Style".... Hope these video links help you learn these great tunes! Gary 98-CWC-WeepingSadAndLonely-QR.pdf
"christmas Concertina" Book Goes Multimedia
gcoover posted a topic in Teaching and LearningI don't know if this is a first in music publishing or not, but "Christmas Concertina" (for 30-button Anglo) has just been updated to include QR codes for all 50 Christmas tunes (see attached example). Simply scan the codes with a smartphone app like Red Laser and it will immediately take you to a YouTube video of the tune played twice through. Much better than having a CD included with the book, and you can actually see and hear how the arrangement in the book is played. I've used QR codes before to develop inexpensive historical markers that link to online text and historical photos, but Mike Oxtinks' recent post here on cnet got me thinking why not try it with a music book. Thanks to print-on-demand publishing, all new copies ordered on Amazon and through the Button Box will have the linkable codes. Pretty cool technology! Now if Mr. Coover would just hurry up and get the videos completed for the other books........... Gary GodRestYe-lyrics.pdf
