  1. Thank you to all those helpful tips and to Steve Wilson's video. Now to set up my practice of scales ...and then on to chord playing. Much appreciated.....regards Mary-Louise
  2. Using the root triads - the triangles shown in these diagrams - is a starting point, but rather limited. Two variations to consider, right from the start in my view, are: 1. Spread chords. Starting with the triad (triangle) as shown, take out the middle note and instead play it an octave higher (on the other side). Can often sound mellower than the basic triad. 2. First inversion. Starting with the triad as shown take out the bottom note and play it an octave higher (on the other side). These two techniques, along with the root triad, will allow you to play a more satisfying accompaniment where the top note of the chord (or the bottom note or even both) follow a musical progression. REALLY HELPFUL TIPS! Thanks from Mary-Louise
  3. Thanks Randy for your help. It has been suggested to me before that I should learn the scales first and then practice the chords. A good start! I shall do just that! regards, Mary-Louise
  4. Thank you John for your information. I also found your link to Kettle Bridge interesting. Am assuming this takes place somewhere in America? Many thanks. Regards Mary-Louise
  5. Any recommendations for videos/tutorials on how to play chords on an English Concertina?
