wayman Posted January 15, 2015 Share Posted January 15, 2015 ...the post-modern, or "post-noel-hill" style that features lots of bass chord use can be heard as overpowering by some listeners. Not just concertinas. There are few things I find as annoying as a battalion of guitars playing chords so loud that I can't identify the melody line, even when several instruments are playing melody. So if your concertina isn't the only instrument playing chords, please be gentle. Or a battalion of melodeons. (Various threads at The Session and Mudcat suggest "a mass of melodeons", "a misery of melodeons", "a wheeze of melodeons" ... compare with the much nicer "a consort of concertinas". See, we're appreciated more than the melodeons, at least in some circles! ) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
