GUEST,J Help: Concertinas: Anglo vs. English? (90* d) RE: Help: Concertinas: Anglo vs. English? 16 Jun 07

Those high notes on the right hand side of my Anglo are just waiting for me to expand my skill enough to make use of them. I recently played a trio set with Bob Webb on McCann Duet, and Bob Walser on Anglo, and I doubled the melody an octave up in the key of G. I had a chance to practice, which allowed me to find the scale from G above middle C on up beyond the next G. Not particularly pleasant when playing solo, but it was fun as part of the trio.

Being reminded that those notes are there is a stimulus to figuring out how to use them in arrangements. Honestly, I believe I could work on the Anglo for another quarter century and still not explore all the possibilities. While I'm tempted to buy a concertina in other keys, there seems to be so much to learn about my C/G that it's hard to justify.
