Adrian's Concertina Instructor...

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Thanks to an alert from Gary, I couldn't resist getting hold of a copy of this mighty tome via Ebay.

I've made a scan of all 16 pages, but since it's from 1937 and theoretically still in copyright, I'm a bit wary of just posting it on the web. If anybody is interested, send me a PM and I'll email you a copy (8.4Mb).

 

Strangely perhaps, the tutor is for a 20 button German looking concertina in F/C

It's a C.F. Adrian (further details were not available on short internet search, I'm sure someone will pitch in here soon)

I've no idea who he was, but there is an original composition "Carnival Nights" in the publication. Just wondering if his initials give a clue to the tuning of his concertina... Is this the only method/tutor that uses an F/C concertina, or was this a common tuning in German instruments of the 1930s?
