John Sylte Posted October 3, 2006 Share Posted October 3, 2006 Hi All, I'm a 32 year old fiddler (of 21 years) turned diatonic harmonica player turned concertina player... I have been playing traditional irish tunes since 1995 and started playing American old time music in 2001. I have a C/G Stagi that I mainly play "in the rows". Having played harmonica, this is quite natural to me. When I go to sessions I only take a G, Low D, and an A harmonica, and those keys suit me just fine. I recently sat down and charted out what I am thinking is a perfect GDA concertina. With threee extra buttons I figured out how to make it fully chromatic. I have made a down payment on a custom concertina, but I have not finalized the button layout. I would like some feedback. This seems like a viable layout to me. Is there something else I should be considering? I'd rather that my bubble be burst now than when the instrument is on my lap... Thanks All- Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
