Thank you. I am considering a birthday gift for a friend. If you could post a notice here when in stock, that would be nice.

This book is now back in stock at https://redcowmusic.co.uk/product/contemplating-the-concertina/

 

If you’re an intermediate or better English concertina player with a good grasp of music theory who wants to move beyond “session tunes” into more complex music and playing techniques, this is definitely the book for you. Be warned: on the very first page of tuition Mr Atlas will have you playing a scale of C# Major in six sharps, as an exercise to familiarise yourself with the enharmonic accidental buttons which the odds are you’ll never have touched before.

If you’re prepared to put the work in, this book will teach you a LOT, but you will have to put in a lot to achieve that.

The only book on the market today which teaches advanced playing techniques. Highly recommended!

I don’t have my copy at hand to see what’s actually there, but the key of C# Major has seven sharps (yes, both E# and B#).

C# Major in however many sharps is just D flat major (5 flats with D flat using C# instead) You run across that in F minor or A flat major as well.

 

The real fun is to play in B# major with double sharps - B# C## D## etc
