English better for song accompaniment than Anglo?

See, I've heard that before, and I really can't see it myself. .

The problem that I find with accompanying yourself on an anglo is that, while the song needs a certain amount of breath control, pulling and pushing doesn't necessarily coincide with where you want to breathe in and out. You have to choose your songs and it requires a fair amount of concentration. Not really the best for a relaxed performance.
