GUEST,Sam Pirt Learning Accordion (60* d) RE: Help: Learning ACCORDIAN 21 Mar 01


Guest scrufie, I have had a lot of tuition of Karen over the 8 years I have been playing and I play lots of music from Irish to Finnish etc.. I have to say I LOVE THE LEFT HAND. It is that which to me can make a tune EVIL or VERY HAPPY. I do realise this can be also just be done with a single reed but I ask you whay will have most impact for the listener.

When I say left hand, I am not talking about um-pa bass lines (not that there's anything wrong with them) but I am taking about weird chords, runs, notes dischords OOH it gets me excited just thinking about it.

The world is your oyster if you choose to open the shell and try it, once you have tasted it once you will want more and more!!

Cheers, Sam
