danersen Posted January 6, 2011 Share Posted January 6, 2011 Hello Mike, I'll try get back to this when I have more time, but a few comments at the moment. I think that your proposed two-row layout will be problematic for you in minor keys and polyphonic music. The stretch - even though it is horizontal rather than vertical - is a concern to which you might want to give further consideration. Harry's hybrid is very easy to accommodate if you can play a CBA, and bellows management is similar to that of a bandonion or chemnitzer. If your fingers are colliding on a CBA, your hand position or the angle of your wrist may need some attention. Are you playing c-griff or b- griff? I may have missed it, but the scope of your desired note range is an important factor. Playing a Hayfen/Wicki layout is not at all like playing a piano accordion - in my experience. Minor keys and non-natural keys can also be a challenge when playing a Wicki/Hayden layout - again, in my experience. Be Well, Dan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
