I'm new with my duet Lachenal 39 buttons.
yersterday, I tried very eagerly (and nearly all day long, which is probably too much ... ) to learn Inisheer waltz, because I do want very much to play this tune (though it's not an easy one for me, being a beginner and having to get in mind the positions of the notes, and to do with absent notes on the right etc...).
At the end of the day, I overcame some difficulties but at the same time, I got a pain in my left thumb and wrist, really painful which caused a strong waning of my enthusiasm ...
I know I played too long.
But my question is : why is the LEFT thumb and wrist ? and nearly no pain on the right hand ?
Maybe I play my concertina the same way as I play my melodeon ?
and another question is : is there a special way to manage the bellows when playing the concertina ?
