Ptarmigan Posted September 21, 2008 Share Posted September 21, 2008 Good Luck with your Anglo journey Chris. I'm just about to go the other way & start out on an English journey, after playing Anglo for nearly 30 years! However, I have no intention of not playing Anglo in the future. I actually want to play both, using them for different sessions & different music. Perhaps we could swop notes after a few months & see how the change has come to each of us? Cheers Dick Of my three squeezeboxes, English was the easiest to learn, Thanks Michael, as an Anglo player who has just bought his first English, that is music to my ears! I play Irish music on English concertina for many years now, and although I was often advised to turn to Anglo instead I never did. Fair play chiton, & to hell with the begrudgers I say. Stick to your guns. What is lacking is technique English players tend to get into a habit of not playing a note crisply, but slightly slurring one note into the next.The art of just touching the button to get a crisp note seems to be lost from a very early age in English playing techniques. Interesting Alan, I'll watch out for that trap! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
