Nicholas Posted May 24, 2007 Share Posted May 24, 2007 In trying to relearn the English concertina, I have a question. I am trying to pick out the notes by ear for some simple tunes like Molly Malone and The Rights of Man. I am having some difficulty finding the notes, but I will be able to in time. Should I focus on finding the right notes and then concentrate on the bellows movement, or vice-versa, or both skills together? One of the issues affecting the bellows movement is that some of the notes on my Jackie are sticking, so it takes slightly longer to get the note to sound, thus affecting the bellows movement. What do you all suggest? The other question refers to playing concecutive notes, not chords that are a 5th apart. Do you all really play them with 2 different fingers? Is there a method to figure out which fingers to use on either hand? I would be grateful for any help. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
