How best to learn harmonic Anglo?

It seems to me that Kathryn is being far far more ambitious than anyone would expect on a 20 key box. I'd love to hear what she will do when she gets a 40 key one.

There is a huge amount you can achieve on a 20 button box.  It's not as versatile as a 30 (or more) but I feel that its restrictions give it more of what I consider "the authentic Anglo sound".

 

Harmonic style on a 20b Anglo requires a lot of compromises, gaps, cheats and bluffs and as a result it sounds like no other instrument.

 

I play my 20b from time to time just to get back to basics.  I think it makes me a better musician on the 30b.

 

Playing in the second key (G on a CG, D on a GD) gives you a pretty full set of chords and bass notes for tunes in the major key.

Hi Richard,

 

No plans to venture beyond 20 buttons at the moment..I keep finding more things to do with those 20! 😂

 

Just now I stumbled on the most beautiful 9th chord - luckily I had the phone on record so I can rediscover how on Earth that happened!

 

And mashing the top four buttons together on the left makes a lovely Em7 

 

Just considering the increased permutations just a few extra buttons might provide us enough to fry my head right now!

I would add my praise to Gary Coover's books. I found the "Anglo Concertina in the Harmonic Style" a revelation. I always tought it should be possible to play some good harmonies and this book showed me how. Hope you have a great time with it.
