The Irish Concertina by Mick Bramich. Bramich presents a systematic approach to playing the C/G Anglo concertina in the Irish style.  You don't have to play specifically Irish music to utilize this style; the system employed is one of the most efficient ways of exploiting the peculiar nuances of this instrument and can be applied to any genre. Keys are presented in order of difficulty and all types of tune are adressed. The book contains 17 photographs and numerous illustrations and diagrams; 14 reels, 20 jigs, 10 hornpipes and 12 miscellaneous tunes; rudiments of music; an extensive bibliography and discography; and a chord chart. The optional CD contains extracts from each chapter and a selection of the tunes from the book. It is not totally essential that you be able to read musical notation to use this book, but musical notation is used without explanation. 76 pages.
