Re: stradella bass buttons

Ben is right. Forget about higher or lower and just concentrate on the chord/bass you are needing. The design of the accordion and the coupler selection will then determine the voicing.

Re: Hello all

Hi Richard, welcome. It's not universal this antipathy to jazz. I for one am a keen fan in its many forms but indeed this forum does not appear to have a majority of jazz lovers. The harmonies and freedom when playing are pretty intoxicating, especially if you play together with others. As for punk,...

Re: Accordion and piano

I think you are right Hank (or is it Henrik?). The accordion lends itself to accompanying oneself whilst the piano requires more planning before it becomes muddy and too overpowering. I come from 50 years (don't laugh) of piano playing and am still amazed at how I can "knock out a tune" by...

Re: stradella bass buttons

I think Bosca is right. Keep it simple. Don't try to learn the whole lot at once. As a beginner concentrate on Bb, F, C, G, D, A, E, B, F#. This should give you more than enough. In fact concentrate on the cluster around C first.

Re: Southern England Chromatic Button Accordion Rally

Sounds like a great idea Tom for those close enough. Not sure I'll be in driving distance in August but I sure as hell support the idea. In fact it's an idea I was toying with myself but delayed it a year or so until I get my house in France up to scratch to hold such an event. Maybe we need a "...

Re: V-Accordion on an airplane

Ed,
I'd be wary of solution 2 if it's Delta Airlines as they may well drag your accordion off the plane and kick two of its keys in :)

Re: Usb Stick for Roland FR3X

That is a very huge thing to forget... lol When creating a Linux boot disk, it writes to sections of the media that identify it differently to the host. Some hosts can get past it, others, like V-Accordions, cannot. Basically, you need to reinitialize the USB stick and then format it again before i...

Re: FR-4X!!!

Thanks for the practical test Jerry. Indeed a charge takes around 3 hours.
