Hey everyone! I'm back, and with a Concertina this time. Its been a few weeks since I got my concertina and ill be uploading progress videos to my youtube weekly as I progress through the OAIM.

I can already foresee the challenges ahead with Concertina, but itll be fun and exciting! Hope you all enjoy the piano playing!

Very nice rhythmic approach to playing the reels on the piano, enjoyed that a lot! And congrats for apparently being on your way with the new instrument as well!

 

Best wishes - Wolf

3rd week now since I took delivery of my Rochelle and really enjoying the practise, havn't tried any self taught reels, your's does sound really good. I've just introduced B flat into some of the tunes, p23 of the Rochelle tutor, are you using the index finger for both the B flat and G that follows? it feels a bit strange and slow, so not sure that's correct.

I don't have the Rochelle tutor, so I don't know if it's telling you what buttons to use, but -- assuming the G is the one in the same octave as the Bb, -- I think I wouln't use the push G in the C row right after the Bb. Instead, I'd use either the push G in the G row or the pull G in the "accidental" row (next to the Bb, if we're talking left hand).

Thank you Jim, I 've not long realised l've been getting into a bit of muddle, trying to learn the English and Irish styles of playing, sticking to the English method now, as l

also dance in a Morris side and seem to be back on track and making some music.
