Can someone point me to a good collection of simple-ish abc tunes that I can try? I know there are lots of tune links, but if someone (perhaps a club player like Theo) could give me a stepwise way into learning this great instrument, I would appreciate the wisdom and insight

Sorry to disappoint, but I don't play the club system, just a converted club box.

No problem. In what way is it converted? De-clubbed C in the right hand?

Mine is de-clubbed on right and left hand so its just a 2.5 row with standard 8 bass and main right hand rows.

What's the bass config on a de-clubbed bass side? Is the A re-tuned to Am?

Thanks,

Thanks, Mark. That looks a beauty! :)

I'm doing pretty good, I think, for a beginner.

I've kinda just set myself the goal of getting my two hands to work together and play simple melodies, although I'm finding the strategic playing of notes against chords and the whole push/pull thing to be a real challenge, but I'll get there.

It's literally just hours of fun. :D

On my most recent declubbing I've left the original basses untouched. It's surprising how little left-hand relearning has been necessary, and also how many interesting bass lines have emerged.....
