I know an Anglo buttonbox player who started out on harmonica. Last I heard, he still breathes in tandem with his box as if he's huffing on his gob iron.

Chugging, then? I was thinking of this technique: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dw0J6lIC ... re=related (beginning @ 0:30). But damn me if I can figure out which one of 'em has the mad skillz that makes that piano-y sound.

Hmm. I can only imagine that you might be referring to a local C#/D box player, not an Anglo concertina player. :wink: After nearly 12 years of playing I've finally gotten to the point where someone who might be watching me play doesn't really notice the breathing. The very real issue that I face is trying to call out a tune name, key, or just "hup!": I either have to stop playing in the middle of the tune, or wait until I hit a run of notes with the bellows going in either direction so as to make that call. Oddly, when I play guitar I can sing at the same time, but when playing the box I'm lucky to so much as grunt.
