Is The Concertina Historicly A....

Recommended Posts

Assuming the artist got that detail right, of course.

...................that was really the thrust of my question.Did he draw what he saw or draw what he thought a concertina should look like.Robin

Sorry, Robin, I should have posted the whole picture of the cover of that 1860s german concertina tutor. Its a 20 button two row. Here is the full picture.

 

Cheers,

Dan

Will the rest of it show up on concertina.com alongside the Howe's and the Sedgwick?

 

Well, perhaps someday if there is strong interest. Most of my effort right now is on a study of the history of English anglo playing. This tutor was published by Cameron & Co., Glasgow, in 1863, and although a reasonably good one, there are several other tutors that are head and shoulders above it in both technique and/or historical value to English anglo playing. I'll try to post several of those in their entirety with the article. The cover is the best thing about this 1863 tutor....for the most part, the technique is simple along the row playing, albeit of interesting tunes.

 

Cheers,

Dan
