Many beginning players don't realize the importance of adjusting the
straps of the concertina so that they fit snugly over the top of the foot,
but still allow the toes freedom to reach all the keys--that low G drone
note can be a stretch for the left little toe! The pad of the right big
toe must be *squarely on* the air vent button.
Also, some players let their knees flop sideways when they get tired,
putting severe stress on the hips. People prone to this condition insist
that correct posture and grip are essential, lest you incur their dysplasia.
