  1. Thank you Mikefule, I appreciate your thoughts.
  2. Thank you Richard, I appreciate your time and thought. What I am wanting is where that particular is located on the treble clef, or musical notation. Thank you Alex. the instrument I have is a Stagi, Wheatstone. But the layout you sent seems very close. blessings, to all
  3. May I indulge you once more? As I mentoned back there, I have 30 button G/D anglo. Where can I go to see what notes on the musical steaff apply to each key/button? I can read music, a little, and want to be able to see the musical notation and play the simple melody of songs.
  4. Is the C key row the same on all C instruments. Or, is the G row on a C/G instrument the same as the G row on a G/D instrument? How much note/pin variance is there between different instruments with the same Wheatstone layout? I have two printed layouts, both Wheatstone, and the first D key for left hand says it is F# over A and the other says it is F# over E. Just asking but for a NOOB it seems confusing. thanks
  5. One other thing from me, is that I just found this link ( https://www.bushtraditions.org/tutors/concertina.htm ) I like the way it is presented and wonder if any of you very learned people could lead me to a site like this for the 30 key G/D anglo? I suppose I could also dtranspose the music on this site to the G/D tuning. Anyway, I appreciate your input. Blessings
  6. Wow! Thank you all so much! I got the G/D because I thought if I ever learned to play some tunes they were, a lot, in G or D and if I every sang, fok songs or hymns, those keys seemed comfortable. And there is also the added point, I just did it without a tremendous amount of thought. The tab systmes I will look at and see how they fit when I get the instrument. I have also tried harmonicas over time and use the harmonic tab some and the relation to that seems to help me pictue in my mind what I am doing. Anyway, thanks for the input and I look forward to the journey! Blessings
  7. I have been playing stringed instruments (mandolin, guitar and old time banjo) for years but have also been captivated by the concertina. I have decided, at my late age, (I really like learning stuff) to give it a try. I have a Stagi, anglo, 30 key G/D on its way to me and I have been trying to learn all I can from reading and searching the network and this forum. How does standard music notation apply? Is there a chart that shows the standard notation as it applies to each of the keys? Can one use standard notation melody lines and apply it to playing the concertina? I would appreciate your thoughts and comments on how best to proceed and begin the process of learning the concertina. Blessings,
