concertina ceol Help: Concertinas: Anglo vs. English? (90* d) RE: Help: Concertinas: Anglo vs. English? 13 Jun 07

oh no not again!

I really wish that english, duet and anglo were not called concertina because they are all so different from each other. In some ways like comparing a mandolin to a violin, tuned the same but played completely differently.

Unfortunately most of the advice above falls into the "Because I wear glasses and they cure my eyesight problem - they will work for you"

Just to clear up some mis information. Although Anglo is arranged in C/G plus accidental rows this means that you can play in any key, certainly you can play in C, G, A minor, E minor, D, D minor, A etc. etc.

I have to run will post later - I don't think either is better though for anything
