Hohner D 30/60/8 Anglo Fingering Chart Needed
Posted 14 January 2004 - 10:55 PM
The first hurdle is that I do not know what notes go to which buttons. I did email Hohner International with a request for the finger chart but have not heard back in the last two weeks.
Is there someone here who knows this instrument and could tell me the fingering?
In any case I believe it not to be a typical C/G tuning, which is what the Levy book is written for, but one step at a time. The Klezmer book does have each song written for C, and B and E sharp so there may still be some hope of actually playing one of them!
I have enjoyed reading this forum and looking forward to being a part of it.

Edited for factual inaccuracy and apologies all round! The remainder of my post still has relevance, however!

Erm, I just searched for one on the web using Google - this was the first link that showed up:
What you do not have is an anglo concertina
Which, although I didn't know its model number at the time, is the exact same model of Hohner anglo I started on. In which case, mine was the standard Wheatstone fingering, except with the high A/F key reversed on the right hand, and push B, pull A on the bottom of the left hand G row.
Have a look at http://www.concertin...er_layouts.html and see if that makes sense.

I consider the push B and the pull low A on the left hand G row to be best, rather than the duplicate D on the pull. (Why anyone would want the D duplicated is beyond me). Anyway, this diagram has it the "good" way:
, and push B, pull A on the bottom of the left hand G row.
Keyboard diagram of the 40 key anglo-chromatic concertina
Also, this diagram has the actual notes written below on staves.
Even though it is for a 40-key, it uses shading to indicate which notes are available one a 30-key and which are only available on the 40 key.
What is interesting about this 40-key diagram+staves, is that for this A/F key on the right hand, the staff contradicts the diagram!
except with the high A/F key reversed on the right hand,
I think the F should be on the pull, so you can double it with any of the other F's. My stagi has it on the push with the A on the pull, and I find it annoying.

Having remembered what middle C sounds like, working with a tune in the song book to see if it all sounds right, and referring to the finguring charts: I believe the instrument is a C/G.
