pugwash Posted May 8, 2007 Share Posted May 8, 2007 Hello everyone, my name is Richard and I am from Berkshire, England. Firstly, I would just like to say what a great forum. It was after browsing these pages for a couple of weeks that I was able to make up my mind as to what concertina would suit me best. I decided to go for an English ebony ended Charsley Stafford, aprox: 1873 from Hobgoblin, Crawley. I bought it ten days ago and have not put it down since. This is my second instrument, my first was an acoustic guitar that I have been trying to learn for the past five years but when it came to those barre cords, I struggled so I am limited as to what I can play. No such excuses with the concertina though, none of that stretchy stuff. I intend to be strict and learn my scales before I move on to any tunes so I can get used to the fingering positions, I have learn't my c, g. f and d and tonight shall move onto another scale. I do not move onto another scale until I can play the previous ones backwards and forwards and find them without looking. I hope my neighbours can't hear me. Richard.
