That's one of the problems, Sinsull -- he hasn't really been able to play the concertina.

He got out of practice after he broke his ankle and was in a wheelchair (with arms, of course) and couldn't play for over 6 months. Then his hospitalization last February set him back majorly, both in the playing part and in the eyesight part.

He doesn't NEED to see the keys to find where he starts (never did when he was sighted), but he thinks he does.

Plus he's back in a wheelchair most of the time at home or else in another armchair. I've got sturdy armless chairs he could use, but he never seems to want to play the concertina. So I've not only lost my singing partner, I've lost my accompanist.

Bad subject right now.
