Yamandu Costa youtube videos 

Thought it would be worth mentioning he's been putting out a bunch of new videos on his youtube channel
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmxizguBfwRFe8thw97aExA

There's even an episode where he goes to Vicente Carillo's workshop, chats, and plays some guitars.

If you're not familiar with Yamandu Costa, he's a phenomenal guitar player.
Here's a video of him playing with an accordion player:

I started following his youtube account several months ago, love him. Great guitar player, fine music, seems like a cool guy as well, to me he transfers joy.

Yes it is. A wicked instrument - four different keyboards to learn - left and right hand opening, and left and right hand closing. The version that became the Argentinian tango orchestra mainstay is a "142 voices doble-A" i.e. manufactured by Alfred Arnold, with 33 keys on the left and 38 on the right.

I revisited recently its note layouts. It seems like a Tonnetz system, but it is not - just an idiosyncratic arrangement; the result of many years of incremental note additions to existing layouts.

Martin Sued seems to avoid playing while closing in this clip for some reason. I can't imagine him not knowing the closing keyboards as he appears a quite well known Argentinian bandoneonist and composer; probably didn't need to as the piece is slow pace; or something wrong with the bandoneon he happened to be using.

In a similar vein, equally virtuosic.



Wow!!!

Nice videos yamandu is indeed a really scary player who is keeping it fun and cool, I love him, al di meola did some good stuff with world sinfonia but I always found him a little stiff for this stuff. Rombsix I liked your video thanks !

This stuff by antoine and samuelito is good too it's dedicated to yamandu :



A little bonus a very beautiful waltz for solo guitar with plectrum, the more I listen it the more I like it
His dynamics are amazing it's like classical guitar and gipsy guitar had a baby.

Oh man that just sent me down a long gypsy jazz rabbit hole on youtube.

Haha I was talking to a guy from argentina last month and he told me people there get upset if you dance tango without the right clothes.

The cigarette in dimeola's mouth gives him some cred but he's too much of a "palm muted noodling on the harmonic minor" for me. Sorry Ricardo.

Way to kill the vibe with a freaking chart kitarist. I'm surprised you didn't correct Ricardo's spelling while you're at it.
Nice observation re Sued's tendency to play while opening. I wonder if it's an elementary reason that's obvious if you have any idea about bandoneon playing (which I don't)..?

It needed no correction though 'Bandonion' was in fact the way it got spelled initially when the instrument was first marketed around 1856 by a distributor called 'Band'.

The 'inventor' is a bit unclear, but Carl Zimmermann may have a larger claim to that than Heinrich Band. The instrument was based on the German Konzertina rather than imagined from scratch.

Zimmermann modified Konzertinas in the late 1840s and thus a different instrument was born. He also produced them with a slightly different keyboard layout for Band - who named that version of the new instrument after himself and also started selling it. Band did request adding a fourth row to the three existing ones, unlike Zimmermann's version which had longer rows but still kept three of them on each side. So, at the end, 'Bandonion' stuck, in the version Band wanted.

The name was at first 'bandonION', perhaps meant to be analogous to 'accordION'. 'Bandoneon' took off later and is now a more popular spelling, but 'bandonion' was the original spelling and is still in use. On the other hand, in German accordion is 'Akkordeon', so the same-ending reasoning does not quite compute, in German. BTW the accordion was a pretty recent invention at the time - from around 1829 or so.

The Alfred Arnold factory in Carlsfeld that produced the AA 142 model used exclusively by Golden era tango orchestras started producing it in 1911. Unfortunately the factory got nationalized in 1948 as it was in East Germany, and that was that. Apparently the knowledge of the exact metal mixture and process to produce the magical reeds and plates on the AA 142 was lost. There are several contemporary bandoneon makers, however.

Wow!!!! That was really deep. I’m gonna meditate on that one for a while.

I've read some posts about how to file nails and since I started playing I went from more round shape to more squared shape and shorter nails which is I think better for me. I also have a problem with A finger, the sound I get not usually how I like it.

But is there any "rule" about how to file and shape nails given a natural shape of a nail? I mean, what if a nail is more circular or flat? What if one side is higher than the other? What if only the edges are curved while the center is more flat, etc? Do you think there's a starting point given different natural nail shapes or it's just about experimenting and trying things until good shape is found for each fingernail?
