Learning The Concertina

Thu Oct 25, 2007 4:23 pm

Since I sing in an Irish band, and my two guitarists are way better than me, I have picked up and am teaching myself the concertina.



I'm learning by painstaking sight reading (not my best skill) and going to a local instructional Irish trad session. It's freakin' hard, and it's gonna be a while before it no longer sounds like I'm torturing Schroedinger's cat.

Does anyone else here play this instrument, or Irish trad in general?
