thanks mate it is so hard used to be easy as l remember bit shocked at how hard it is to play .l am trying to learn a harvest home almost there . Old melodeon is a bit ropey which makes it harder lol have to squeeze hard to get some of the notes to sound the chord bass notes need more squeeze to get a sound.   ron
