I am fairly new to concertina.  (as you can tell by my question!!)  I have always played sitting down. I do a knee vibrato of sorts.. I think it sounds good. Two questions..  Is there away to accomplish this sound when standing to play?  Also what other techniques can be used for sound change. Is there a topic already on this.. thanks in advance. Pam

is this the effect you're looking for?

 

Just shake the ends,  although Manie seems to give the whole bellows a good shake!

Jake,

you beat me to it! I was thinking along those lines when I read Pam's question. That bellows tremolo is really typical of the South African boeremusiek style.

 

BTW, boeremusiek is one of the music genres in which the concertina plays a central role. Apparently they play all concertina systems - for more info see here.

 

Cheers,

John
