Tiposx Posted September 9, 2021 Share Posted September 9, 2021 Hi I wonder if anyone would share their experience of playing both systems. I have been playing Itm on English concertinas for a couple or so years. I have recently bought a 22 button Anglo and spent a few days getting used to it and learning a tune or two. I have only attempted tunes that I haven’t played before. This was challenging and I enjoyed it, but then it was time to practice on the English again. To my horror I couldn’t get a tune out - the rows were in the wrong place, and one of the thumb loops had crept forward by a few buttons. It took me quite a while to readjust my finger positions, and even after that I seem to have forgotten how some of my tunes started. It feels like I have gone backwards. I am on holiday for a few days now and won’t be playing any instrument, but have time to mull it over. So I am a little worried now - has anyone else on the forum made a success of it? Will I get used to it eventually? I have a friend who plays Anglo, English and two kinds of duet concertinas successfully, but he is what I call a “proper” musician.
