Peter Laban Posted December 13, 2022 Share Posted December 13, 2022 (edited) I'd be wary of generalising. Irish music tends to be in D. Yes, except when it isn't. There's a reason why players of Irish music don't use the G/D, except for a limited number of tunes, perhaps. There are players who play 'on the rows' who prefer the (two row) D /A but their number is relatively limited too. That said, I played for years with a lovely 'on the rows' player who treated her 30 button instrument as a two row and I don't think she felt limited by it at any point. In fact she was always pining for a nice two row, if we could find her one. The two row C/G has its limitations but as an introduction, a starter instrument it's a great alternative to cheap 30 button accordion reeded instruments. But for the OP it may just be a little late to pick a nice one, if they want to find one before Christmas.
