Mary B Posted January 7, 2012 Share Posted January 7, 2012 I just got a 48 button Lachenal Crane duet yesterday. I have downloaded the Wilton-Bulstrode and Salvation Army tutors, but have not studied them much. After practicing the C scale, I tried playing some of my favorite tunes. When I played "Amazing Grace" I used the fingering method I learned for 5th's on my English concertina (tucking a different finger under or over) whenever there was a 4th interval. I was dismayed at how difficult it was, especially with my short pinky finger. Today I started working through the exercises in the tutors. I noticed that both authors say to jump the same finger up or down to play a 4th interval. I was wondering how the experienced Crane players do this. I really prefer the legato sound one gets by tucking fingers. Is it possible to do this on a Crane? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
