  1. I’ve had my concertina for 4 days, and I’ve began learning from “Easy Anglo 1-2-3” by Gary Coover. It’s certainly challenging, but so far quite rewarding. I also worked out scales in G and D and I’m working on getting them under my fingers. I can tell it’s going to take a while to get to the point where I can play melody and harmony and sound nice (instead of clumsily honking through a tune on a single row), but I look forward to the journey there.

For some background, I have wanted to learn the concertina since I was 17, (but opted for a electric guitar for my 18th birthday instead, I was a fool), and have now finally ordered a 30 button anglo. I have general music knowledge and experience playing folk music in an English session (on tin whistle) in Brighton where I live. I also finally learned to read music
