The Melodeon Tutor (Book, DVD and CD) by Ed Rennie

Starting from absolute beginners the step by step approach takes you through the mysteries of playing the D/G melodeon all the way to advanced techniques playing in C major and A Major. There is no need to be able to read music with this book as Ed has devised a unique numbering system to get you playing from the start. It’s also handy for explaining the more complicated fingering patterns. Many who have been taught by Ed have inadvertently learned how to read music as a by-product of this system! This 54 page book comes with a 42 track CD, so you can hear what things are supposed to sound like. It also comes with a DVD of 30 video clips with right and left hand techniques shown in close up. Sometimes the written word just isn’t enough.


Streb for sale

STREB DIGITAL MELODEON two and a half rows and with 12 bass. In excellent condition and excellent working order. This has never been out of my smoke free house and is virtually devoid of any scratches and certainly has no damage at all. It is not the first design made but perhaps the second. It is upgradeable to the latest software at a cost of £200. The new price of this Streb is £1750 and Steve Rouse told me last week there is at least an 18 month waiting list. I am open to sensible offers. I am located in Derbyshire if you would like to view or try, or I can send you a small video and some photos if you email me a request to Alan Squires ...
