The Melodeon Tutor
The Melodeon Tutor

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended., 8 Feb. 2016

This review is from: The Melodeon Tutor (Paperback)
This has obviously been well thought out and the presentation is excellent. As an absolute beginner I've found the general advice to be very useful, as simple things are often left out, although there's not a lot about how to hold the instrument when sitting. I'm aware this might be a daft thing to say and I'm assuming you fall into a way of playing but it's the one thing, at this stage, that I'm struggling with. I'm only part way into the book but have found the choice of music to be good in that there appears to be a gradual increase in requirements as you go along but no big jumps which leave you wondering if you missed something. The writing is clear and the author understands what a beginner needs as far as clarity and encouragement are concerned. Having both a cd and a dvd is a boon. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book for beginners., 14 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is written from the perspective of an absolute beginner. So far I have been following Youtube videos but there aren't many which concentrate on basic instruction. This book is perfect for beginners. It's well laid out and thoughtfully written with good advice for the beginner. My only criticism is that the black and white photos could have been clearer but that's a minor point. The book comes with a cd which contains the rhythms to be practised and these are clearly listed in the book. The author starts right at the beginning in how to hold the drum and then moves on to the basic strokes, all clearly explained. He also introduces his method of notation. He then moves on to the rhythms to be used and initially offers about four pages of simple rhythms, which are not on the cd, to practise. There are a few pages relating to western music theory and then he gets into the longer rhythms and stroke combinations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average, 4 Dec. 2015

A great many recipes with a lot of information, much of which I wouldn't trust without checking elsewhere. The layout is poor with recipes grouped under headings like 'anti-aging smoothies'. Not very helpful and there is no index. Being able to look for main ingredients would have been helpful instead of looking at what I've got in the fridge or cupboard then ploughing through the book. There must be better books.

3.0 out of 5 stars A handful of reasonably good recipes with information about calories, 4 Dec. 2015

A handful of reasonably good recipes with information about calories, protein etc. and useful for those looking for them to be health conscious. Be prepared to get through a lot of bananas. Almost half the book is taken up with what is primarily a lecture bordering on a rant.

Mine is as shown in the picture. It's very well made, waterproof and easy to use. It stores just the right amount of coal for me. Delivery was quick and bunker was easy to move and put in place on a pallet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 1 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The text on mine is in German but it's not exactly difficult to understand. It's not as substantial as I expected it to be and is quite lightweight. It is, however, well made, a good size and easy to use. It's easy to set the thermometer and hygrometer although the latter is a problem if you have nothing to compare it with. It does appear to work very well but I wouldn't rely on it if you need very accurate readings.

Initial thoughts - excellent. Easy to set up although the instructions could be a little clearer, so just be sure to take you're time reading them. Mine is plugged in at waist height so reading the display is no problem. I just wanted it to see the energy usage of a radiator but there are a good many options. Recommended at a very good price.

Very good for a beginner finding a way around the keys but they do wear quite quickly.
