Henk van Aalten Posted March 2, 2004 Share Posted March 2, 2004 Dear concertinists, This tune was stored somewhere in my brain some 17 years ago, when I played it on fiddle together with my musical friends. I completely forgot it till I met one of my friends a week ago by chance. He started playing the tune with his mandolin and I could join after a few seconds with my concertina. Back home I played it over and over again and recorded it (quick&dirty). You can find the tune at: http://home.planet.nl/~aalte099/sound/Af_S...es_in_Vilna.mp3 (1.6 Mb, MP3). I played it on my Marcus 30b GC. The tune is also entered in the Tune-O-Tron. The best recipee for this tune: find some friends/musicians to join you. Repeat it over and over and play it faster and faster. The one that survives the increasing tempo must drink a glass of strong stuff (like wodka), besides the normal beer. Repeat this procedure till.... Back to the tune: part C was really difficult to play at speed with the normal push-pull method (mainly on the C-row). I found an alternative fingering, making use of all three rows, but... it is all pull, so you might get a "breathing" problem. have fun, Henk Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
