ScottC Posted November 9, 2003 Share Posted November 9, 2003 Ref to the post about favorite CDs: Do you have an all time favorite concertina tune? Or maybe there's one tune that you heard that got you fired up about learning concertina in the first place? For me, it was "The Lancer's Jig" (though not the tune usually associated with this title.) I heard an unknown player playing this tune and thought, "Man that's something I need to learn how to do". I ran right out and bought the first 'tina I could find (a 20b Stagi) and went to work starting with that tune. Didn't take long until I was hooked on this odd instrument (and found I couldn't play D tunes on the Stagi) and traded in my Stagi on one of Frank Edgley's instruments. The version of the Lancer's Jig that I'm playing now I learned from Niall Vallely's playing on Tim O'Brien's recent CD "Two Journeys". I just posted the ABC's to the Tune-O-Tron for anyone who's interested. So what did it for you? I'd like to learn some more life altering tunes.
