Black belt caterpillar wrestler concertinas (52* d) RE: concertinas 15 Apr 18

Thank you for the plugs Dave.

The reason I put my playing style down in words was that when I taught myself to play Anglo I had no-one else around to consult with and hence developed my own method. Having not found a tutor book that seemed to duplicate the way I played I thought I had better try and work out what I did, and the best way I could find to do that was to try and write it down. Having got it into words I thought that I might as well make it available to others.

Having been to various concertina weekends over the years I have decided that the tendancy (plenty of exceptions I must add) is for English players to play 4 part pieces from dots, Anglo players to show each other the different ways that they play by ear, and Duet players to work out jazz arrangements!

I have come to the conclusion that what instrument is best for you depends on how your brain works best, you can only really find out by trying out different instruments and different styles.

Remember it's supposed to be for your enjoyment!
