Scores for Wicky or Hayden duet concertinas

Recommended Posts

Since I began to post videos on Youtube a lot of people ask me about the sheet music of those tunes. It reveals the lack of written material to learn Wicky or Hayden duet concertinas. At that time I didn't have enough time to write the scores, but as it becomes even difficult for myself to memorize all my own arrangements I thought that it was time to write the scores and to share it with other musicians interested in this nice instrument.

The scores are available with treble and bass clefs or with double treble clefs. When you want to receive a score just ask me at: soloduetconcertina@gmail.com, tell me which system you prefer (or both) and I will send it asap.

 

Of course anybody who want to contribute to this thread by posting other arrangements in order to facilitate the practice of Wicky or Hayden duet concertinas are welcome!

 

I've just completed the first score, an arrangement of Haul away by Mark Knopfler, just because it's not too difficult and I was playing it when I began to learn how to use the Finale software. I intend to continue to write the music of all the arrangements on a regular basis and let it know here when I complete a new score.

Season's Greetings!

A second score of The Water is Wide is now available on demand. It's a very simple arrangement with the melody on the right and a second voice on the left. I wrote 2 versions in C and G because on the Wicky keyboard it's on a different row and it's very easy to transpose it in other keys with the same fingerings. For example on the Beaumont 52 buttons you can play very easily each of these versions a tone lower or higher.

Here is an old video in which I play it in D and C.

This is fantastic, thank you! Especially for new Duet players like myself, it's incredibly helpful to see how someone arranges a piece of music. Much much appreciated!
