Jonathan Posted November 12, 2004 Share Posted November 12, 2004 Greetings, I've posted one question before this, concerning a damaged "project" 'tina bought on eBay, and I'm happy to say that after a lot of heavy hints about negative feedback, the seller sent me a brand-new, undamaged replacement, and apologies. Granted, this is a 20 button Hohner we're talking about, something I imagine most of you are wrinkling your nose at, and I agree. It's a Chinese made, POS (look that one up), and I've already had to disassemble it to replace a faulty rubber washer that held a button in place. BUT... It's what I wanted at this stage. My problem is, I've gotten myself a "how to" book, which I think is even worse than this 'tina. It's titled: "Mel Bay's Deluxe Concertina Book" by Frank J. Converse. Not only are the tunes given for pratice mind numbingly dull and obscure: Sur le pont D'avignon, but there are typo's that even a novic like me has spotted. Who knows how many there are that I won't catch? Can anyone recommend a good beginner's book of instruction? I grew up playing the flute, so I can read music, but it'll be a trip to see if I can make one hand play one line of music, while the other tries to harmonize. I CAN pat my head while rubbing my belly. That's a good sign, right? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
