Hi All. I'm very new to the concertina. My (inexpensive) Anglo C/G 3 row arrived yesterday! I already play Guitar, Banjo, Harmonica and some keyboard, so I've a fair idea about the note layout now, but I'm having trouble with the hand straps. When I put them over the back of my hands, I'm having trouble reaching the lower row of keys. My hands are not large, but it feels very ''cramped''. I've tried tightening the straps and getting just my 4 fingers though, but I'm open to any advice on how to sort this out. I've thought of making a pair of thumb straps similar to an English concertina or a melodeon, but if anybody else has had this problem and knows the answer I'd be grateful for some advice. I love the sound of the thing.
