Thread Name: concertinas in folk music
Subject: RE: concertinas in folk music
Rather than triangles for chords, I prefer to use low fifths and higher thirds, which makes for a less 'muddy' sound.

Example: Left hand low C and G, right hand higher C and E, with permutations of that for other chords.

A chord 'shape' that fits with the above: keep finger on left hand C and change G to higher F, whilst keeping finger on right hand C and changing higher E to lower A...

...if you follow my drift?!
