FrigginJerk Posted January 11, 2007 Share Posted January 11, 2007 Hey there. I just joined this forum, and I want to ask for your advice. I've never played a concertina before, but I've been toying with the idea of buying one. What kind should I get? Here's some background on me, in case that helps (which I think it will, at least a little bit). I've looked around, and here's what I think I know so far. Correct me if I'm wrong. English styles are unisonoric, good for meldoy lines, and are fully chromatic. Anglo styles are bisonoric and diatonic, like a harmonica, but set up with two musical keys, like C/G. Because of that, I'm leaning towards Anglo-- I play a little harmonica here and there. But does that mean that I'd have to get different concertinas to play in different keys? I play the guitar, and I'd like something that I can use the same way. What I mean is that when I play the guitar, it's just me by myself, playing the chords to the songs I know and like. Nothing too fancy, there. I'd also like to find that sweet spot between not breaking the bank and not buying a piece of junk. But I'm not really looking at any specific brand names yet. Any advice you can give would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
