    Hohner 48 Buttons English

    Hello Mickael The Hohner is pretty low quality. I'm selling my Jackie English concertina. I can sell it to you for 200 Euros. It is in perfect ás new' condition. It has a great reputation as a starter concertina. I'm selling with a view to upgrading to a vintage concertina. Here is the 'Jackie'website http://www.concertinaconnection.com/jackie-jack.htm Best wishes Donald

    Jackie/jack Fingering Triads

    Thanks Wolf. I probably just need more practice
  7. The suggested way of making basic triads such as C-E-G on English concertina seems to be to use one finger for 2 buttons (in this case for the C and G). I'm finding it really difficult to do that on my Jackie concertina (using 3 fingers equally or more difficult). I haven't had access to other concertinas so I'm wondering if the problem is me or something to do with the buttons on the Jackie. Any help welcome

    Do I Need Chords

    Lots of really interesting and helpful points. I've pretty much worked out chord formation but can't quite work out the rhythm. Dana - in terms of 'short vamping style'' - how would that be applied to say this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTl0NcTnk4U

    Song Accompaniment

    Would anyone be kind enough to transpose the Alf Edwards accompaniment on 'All for me grog' or 'John Barleycorn'?

    How does the 'logic'/'fluidity' of the English work?
