  1. Hey all. I just got my new Rochelle, and it's hard to get a higher note to play when there is a lower note playing. It seems the higher pitched reeds take a lot more pressure to sound, and the decrease in pressure from having a low note open makes it very hard to get both the go at once. Is this normal or something that will right itself as the instrument is broken in?
  2. Unfortunately I don't really read music...I used to be able to read enough for singing in choir but that was many years ago. I want to primarily play irish tunes, I'd like to be able to play barn dances. Also, I want to learn some hymns and some songs like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eH9f7Y-1q0 I'm very excited to learn, I can't wait for my concertina to arrive! Oh and I love noel hill
  3. Any suggested readings for the musical theory behind concertina play?
  4. I bought the Rochelle 30-key anglo concertina. My musical background was mostly vocal when I was younger, with a bit of guitar and drums.
  5. What is the best way to start learning? Should I bother about learning musical theory or just start off with just learning some songs via the fingering? Would love to be pointed to some great online resources. Thanks!
