Sorry if this link is already known here. I thought it was interesting to post.
From "weltsauerstoff" youtube channels, I found this page http://dicta.bplaced.net/konzertina/ where detailed musical informations are given in order to play a 20 buttons concertina (he has a Silvetta).

German speaking page, but some on-line translation can help !

I was personnaly impressed by the harmonic style.
Have a good day,

Thank you for this Terence. It is a good resource I think and I like the way the required buttons flash on and off as if they were being played. However, I am fluent in German.

Hi, Terence,

Thanks for the link! I agree, this does seem to be a good resource. A very practical approach that tells you the things that I had to work out for myself on my first German concertina back in the Middle Ages, when there was no Internet.


Of course, you have to read German to appreciate it - but on the other hand, most forum members who don't read German will most likely be British or American, and more likely to play 20-button Anglo-German, single-reeded concertinas than the double-reeded German concertina. Also, the resource deals with the typical German playing style, which is probably not every Brit's thing.
