  1. I am very new to playing the concertina, and am having trouble with the right hand being too quiet when playing an accompanying chord on the left hand. The left hand notes always seem to overpower the right when played in unison. If there is already a conversation about this, I welcome the link. I am trying to figure out if it is a. Human error b. Flaw/damage in instrument c. Both a and b d. Normal. and what I can do to remedy it. Thanks!
  2. I have a wheatestone C/G anglo with the standard 30-button layout on which I play primarily irish music. I have seen some discussion on modified/hybrid layouts for ITM, but they have all been focused on the mid-range, usually focusing the C#. I am getting fairly comfortable with the wheatstone system in this sense, but there is one thing that has continued to bug me. I would really like to have the D below middle C to throw in chords. As it is I can throw in a nice low G, A or E and even the odd C, but the one I would get the most use out of for irish music woudl be that D. Does anyone
  3. what i'm asking is it possible to play 2 parts rather than just one eg. a waltz but not within 1 chord eg. C CM CM I like the look of the Anglo however with what i've seen so far on the layout trying to play a polka is a nightmare. or at least say a polka using say a Bb chord and I know about transposing however that being said is it only possible to play chords in 1 range eg. c cm g cm c cm g cm or can you also a other chords and it's limitation being skill. I ask because I don't one but would like to however I like to play two pieces of the song eg. the waltz part or the polka
  4. I guess this is one for the ABC experts. As an aid to learning the tunes, I'm transposing some Playford tunes into ABC, and am including chords (these are from another players 'personal' scores). In ABC terms, the tunes are M:C| or M:6/4. The default chord profile for M:C| seems to be %%MIDI gchord fzczfzcz. There doesn't seem to be a default profile for M:6/4 so I have cribbed a profile of %%MIDI gchord fzcfzc from somewhere (*). Both of these profiles produce an 'oom-pah' style chord accompaniment when played back through my ABC editor/player (I am using EasyABC). As I'm only
  5. Hello, I'm confused about the way you learn a tune and add the chords. I'm painstakingly trying to remember the chords (and so also have to understand the different keys), that's one thing. My problem is more with fingers... For me adding anything out of the melody line means re-learning a different fingering. For simple tunes probably not, and even less so with simple octaves... but what about complicated pieces? For example I'm working on a classical piece and my fingers, all four of them, are already all over the place! High E can be played by four different fingers...I
  6. Raggedy Rompin' (at bandcamp) This may be the last one I bother to add...recording has gotten a bit difficult around here.
  7. Can anyone help me to put some chords to "Danny Deever" id like to have a go at song accompaniment and I love the song but being a learner (Maccann Duet) im not to good at deciding which chords suit, I tend to sing around the key of D so any help in adding chords would be very welcome, thank you in advance for any help. Vin
  8. I apologize if this topic has been covered elsewhere. I didn't find much in a cursory glance through the topic titles. I have a C/G anglo on which I primarily play melody (mostly irish session music), but recently have been trying to arrange accompaniments for songs. I realize that the layout of the instrument and the required bellow direction changes are somewhat limiting. For now I have mainly stuck to holding sustained chords, which gives a nice 'drone' effect that fits some select songs. (Actually in most cases I find I prefer the sound of just playing the root note and the fifth, and
  9. Could someone please post the open fifth chords for a G/D anglo? How does one do a C chord on the push? Thanks
  10. Here is a link to an automated Excel spreadsheet I made. This helps the Anglo concertina players to play chords on their instrument. It shows the chord constitution and where to play it on the keyboard. There are two sheets in the document, one for a vertical representation of the keyboard and one for a horizontal representation. I hope this can help some of you. https://www.dropbox.com/s/718h0grux4n66wb/ConcertinaChordsEn_VH.xlsm?dl=0
  11. 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
