I made a chart for myself, partly as a side-trip of something else I'm working on. While it isn't particularly spectacular and some of my digital photo editing, color matching, etc., was a challenge, I do kind of like this. So, I'll post it here. It's also posted in my blog, so if one doesn't work out, the other will. Besides here at in my blog, this is also found at box.com/concertinachartrootswendy I don't like to rely on charts or printed music, but if I have something visual, it will make a space in my mind and I think it does help me to a degree.
I've been looking over the chart for English concertina fingering as given here: http://www.concertina.com/fingering/ The first chart, English Concertina Keyboard -- http://www.concertina.com/fingering/images/english48-W842H736.gif has me wondering why it's shown as starting an octave above Middle C. This isn't 'wrong' but I can't figure out if it's actually 'correct' and I would in fact be somehow wrong to show the chart with the lowest C being notated with a capital C, not the small c. So, I would have started with the low G being lower, notated as G, -- then continue up going G#, Ab, Bb, B, C -- etc --- simply an octave lower than it's given on the chart. Sound-wise, the chart is more correct, maybe? But as far as what I'd want to read or write on the musical staff, I think I'd want to go with the lower octave start. Am I missing something...?
