I  have developed a brand new tablature for the anglo concertina which I can use to teach tunes on this instrument in any key!

Not only that but I will only have to record one video per tune as I am using pitch correction software to transpose the musical content of the video without altering my spoken instructions or the timing of my playing.  So, no matter whether you have a CG or GD anglo concertina (or any other tuning!!), I can now provide all the resources you need.

To launch this exciting new idea I have recorded a free tutorial for the lovely old tune Danny Boy. This will give you a really good insight into my new method.  More tutorials using this tab method with a detailed instruction sheet coming soon.

Here are the links to the resources:-
