  1. Thank you for the insight. I can see, depending on how one looks it, bellow control can become more of a mechanical operation rather than feeling your way through the music. Yikes! That piece looks frightful plus I see double-sharps sprinkled about. He's only been playing for two weeks ! So...start slow, methodical, and make pleny of mistakes. In 3-6 months it will be second nature. Looks fun! I've played in orchestral settings before so the music doesn't look too intimidating. But for the concertina.....just a little bit haha
  2. Thank you for the advice. Bellow control is definitely a must for me to practice. Being primarily a stringed instrument player, bellow control is probably my biggest challenge. I was debating the two for a while and decided to go with the english. I like the idea of having the chromatic system. Thanks for listing the different tutors. I'll be sure to check those out!
  3. Hello all! I am new to the forum and to the english concertina. I've been playing for almost two weeks now. When I'm not working through a tutor book I have come to really enjoy practicing modal scales. It is really helping me to become more acquainted with the notes on the instrument. Anyone else use modal scales during their practices? What other exercises would you suggest for a concertina beginner?
