Lawrence Reeves Posted January 9, 2012 Share Posted January 9, 2012 I recently purchased a Wheatstone English concertina to explore the possibilities. Having never tried an English system before receiving it, I am still exploring the instrument. I can play a few simple scales and getting used to the buttons. I play irish dance music exclusively, so will continue learning some tunes this week. I find myself still occasionally looking at my hands, but hope to be past that by the weekend. How many Anglo players here also play or have tried and English system? I use bellows direction in the same way I do on my Anglos, with most As being pulled, most Gs pushed and second octave d and e the same as my Anglo cross fingering. The Wheatstone has nice sounding steel reeds, and an original 1952 bellows. Appears totally original to me, but a little leaky and needs valves.
