lachenal74693 Posted October 7, 2015 Share Posted October 7, 2015 (edited) I have a 30-button Anglo (two actually), and I'm starting to get adventurous and actually use the accidental row. Both my 30-button instruments are Lachenal layout. Problem: My tutor (In-Between Anglo by Mick Bramich) shows that the right hand button 1 on the Accidental row for a C/G Lachenal layout is Eb on the push, and C# on the pull (page 5). I think that in fact it is C# on the push and Eb on the pull - ie: the notes are reversed. Is this a 'typo'? My ear is telling me that this is indeed the case. The other sources I have looked at (Australian Bush Music Site, and Randy Merris's recently posted Salvation Army tutor) confirm this. However, I'm still a little 'nervous' about the idea of 'correcting' things like this. I'm aware that different instruments may have slightly different layouts, but is it likely that concertinas exist with the notes on this R1 Accidental button reversed? I thought that the differences in layouts usually occured at the ends of the rows, ie: on the 4/5 buttons on either hand. Sorry if this is a really dumb question... Thanks.
