    That's really awesome! Just checked it out! There are a lot of tunes there, and I feel the Christmas tunes will come in handy too when that season approaches ! Thanks so much for this!

    Thanks for the response gcoover! I will definitely look into those books and hopefully buy them when I get the money! Maybe I'm being too quick to judge on the anglo because I don't have the experience yet and most of the songs I find on the thesession.org have c# and notes I can't play. I suppose it would be possible to transpose music so that it would work, however I have never actually transposed before and don't even know what key to transpose into for my instrument. Thanks though for the suggestion! I found videos of the songs that are in Civil War Concertina and am really amazed! Will definitely try buying it!

    Thank you for the suggestions! I do have this book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0871668696/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 which helps a lot. I will look into others. Although I think that when I go to upgrade to a newer concertina I'm going to get a duet. The keys make a little more sense in my opinion, and it offers a lot more flexibility than the anglo's push/pull system (unless I am totally wrong). And I will try to get a tutor, although I am extremely busy with schooling and have recently just been hired to work at a summer camp. So I don't know how much time I'll have to practice. I try my best to make time every day, but it's really difficult sometimes. XD

    Hi, I'm sort of new to the concertina world. During my freshman year of college I acquired a fairly cheap 20 key anglo concertina from a yard sale type thing the school had going on. After almost a year of use I know I really like the instrument, but maybe someday want to upgrade to a better quality duet (I would like that "play anything" type feel that it gives). I would like some suggestions of easier tunes that have an accompaniment that a 20 key C/G anglo can play, so I can get in the practice of playing both parts on the instrument. I feel like there is great limitation with it only being 20 buttons and being an anglo (the push/pull playing different notes thing). So some suggestions and help would be great! (First post btw guys!)
