  1. Alright, this beginner is myself. My understanding and love for the concertina come from Danny Chapmanā€™s performances. This fascinating instrument is exactly what I've dreamed of. So, I bought an English concertina as a gift for my 25th birthday. However, there are almost no concertina players in our country, and there are no tutorials at all. In the past few days, I have browsed many old posts but haven't found the answers I want. So I really hope to get some advice. For example, what common mistakes should be avoided when learning the EC? What practice methods can help improve more efficiently? What postures can prevent hand fatigue or injury, and so on? Of course, I also have some specific questions: 1. Since the 48-key EC has the same range as the violin, can I directly use violin sheet music to practice the concertina? 2. Is there a big difference in fingerings between playing solo melodies and playing both accompaniment and melodies at the same time? 3. Are there ways to train finger independence? If I want to play chords, do I need to use my pinky? 4. Does the EC have any unique playing techniques? 5. Can you recommend some outstanding players or EC videos/books/websites that have been very helpful to you? I am very much looking forward to you pioneers sharing your experiences with me. Perhaps we can become good friends in the future. Thank you! Peaer
