I'm sure that the English/Anglo thing is just how your head is wired up. I've lived with an English player for 20 years now and had an English sitting there for me to try out, but I still can't play a scale on a English. She can just get a tune on an Anglo, so on that basis the Anglo is easier to play:)
We both can't get on with a Maccan Duet, though I can manage a scale on that.
I'm find it interesting that quite a few English player (and Duet players) play the melodian. I find the melodian limiting as compared to a 30+ button Anglo. The best chords are missing!
