That would be very useful...just to hear the type of accompaniment which you use for a particular tune. I feel that I just need a couple of ideas to start me off, as I realise that everyone has their own style.
I think that the first "idea" is to demonstrate how I finger scales in C and G (on a C/G Anglo). I appreciate that other players will finger differently, but if you understand what I "normally" do, it should help when you watch any of my videos.
The attached tablature, which I prepared for another new player, shows what I do for the melody, which I try to keep mainly on the right hand of the instrument.
A good (and I think, important) exercise is to learn the fingering for the C scales (as shown), and then work them out yourself for the left hand (an octave lower). The important learning step is then to be able to play the right and left hands simultaneously.
What you will notice is that when, on the right hand, the finger moves from one button to the next to play the next note in the scale, on the left hand the finger remains on the same button, but the bellows reversal gives you the next note in the scale. Similarly, when, on the right hand, the bellows reversal gives the next note in the scale, with the finger remaining on the same button, on the left hand the finger needs to move to the next button.
The above sounds complex to describe, but it is easier to work out with the concertina in your hands.
Hope that this is of use.
