Keyboard Layouts - 2½ Row Diatonic Accordions (including Club Melodeons)
The 2½ row melodeon has been making quite a comeback in England in recent years - it is by no means a new invention, the "Club Model"; have been around for years although modern keyboard layouts are different from the club. The 2½ row melodeon is unfortunately the most varied in terms of fingering; different manufacturers supply different fingerings from the factory and many players change the reed setup to reflect their own playing styles. I have included a B/C (Irish chromatic) 2½ row layout which makes some fingering on the B/C system easier.
