When I hit the battlefield, I like to use my trusty concertina like a flail, hence my devotion to a strap.



I've been known to flail about trying to play concertina, and I'm always strapped.... :(


PS - I'm of German/English descent...I'll get all drunk on Bitter and go Berserk on you!

Well, I've never seen a really great concertina player with a strap. Maybe my experience is limited or perhaps they just practice more and overcome the need for aids.

I had a nice scathing rebuttal all typed out, but honestly, what's the point? I play my way, and you play yours.
