Merrygold Posted March 30, 2015 Share Posted March 30, 2015 (edited) Hi there, I've had my Concertina for about two weeks now, so this might be a common beginner's problem, but it's really annoying me right now. When I play more than 3 notes on the pull, I'm always out off... well, concertina. I have an old Anglo Lachenal with 5 fold bellows, so there should be enough space. I don't have the same issues on the push. I'm a bit worried my bellows might be a bit leaky (Concertina doesn't stay completely airtight folded) I've been wondering if any of you have some advice on how to use less bellows. On all of the videos I've been watching, no one even seems to pull their Instrument as wide open as I do. Or is this due to playing too slow? I also noticed that I do play quite staccato somtimes (pull a little for every note instead of continously pulling - I've been wondering if that was the issue) And speaking of that - how do I use the Air Button without having too much of a gap in the playing? Hope there're not too stupid questions here - sorry, I'm a complete beginner! Thanks in advance Edited March 30, 2015 by Merrygold Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
