Some of you may recall that back in March I did my second Inside and Out on Malcolm Woods’ Sibylla Brand G/C/F. Well, it is now the property of someone known only as “Daddy Long Les”, who has just released his version of the story of his new box. There are some interesting shots that I didn’t have, so do take a look. Take a look also at the rest of his videos on playing the melodeon, inspirational stuff for anyone starting out.
He is kind enough to mention this blog during the video. He also mentions the common practice of flattening the thirds in the chords, which he states is a pleasing effect although he doesn’t know why. If you would like to know why then please tune in to this blog later on, as I’ve been meaning to do a blog post on that very topic [UPDATE: See here].
My life is horrifically complicated at the moment, but I am hopeful that next month things will stabilise again and I can start to work through my backlog of posts. I have eight planned out now I think, I just need to find the time to write them! So stay tuned.
Quick gig plug – I am supporting Nancy Kerr and James Fagan at Milkmaid Folk Club in Bury St Edmunds on the 21st September. It should be a fantastic gig and it would be great to see lots of you there.
I’m off on tour with the Cambridge University Ceilidh Band next week in Devon. Hope to see some of you back when I return.
