  1. It was that topic on this net. just of recent about composer wishing to write for concertina, and the flood or more 'ocean' of our enthusiastic responses in assisting their wishes. [They must therefore have been nearly 'drowned' in the myriad of advice received?!] Then I have also found in recently writing for two instruments [ in form of duo] not 'duets'. the Anglo to me is ideal in achieving this format. I think it is because of its left, and right-hand keyboard set up, with the bass notes to left, and higher notes to right which allows me to hear where one voice can go with another, on the one instrument. And then there's that characteristic way you can create a second voice by use of left hand whilst playing the right on melody line, as you go along. I see it very much as also a 'means to a goal' to achieve a creative objective, in music, just as anyone may well use a guitar and strum away, or keyboard. Also, I believe that in making your first new tunes on a different instrument you do find a different and novel way of approaching musical ideas, that maybe would not have become so apparent on the standard setup. My own 'duos' are really for any instrument combination, but I start them off on my trusted Anglo concertina often [with exception of lower tonal range tunes where I write them with my wooden chalumeau on occasions]. Either way writing using alternative instruments is a good way of seeing and hearing the world of music in a completely refreshing manner that I can only encourage, based on, and from my own experience.
