Re: piano to accordion

Interesting Henrik, but that's what I mean by over analysing the issue. If you want to go back to basics and start with Newton's laws of mechanics then good luck. In that case I suggest you get your physics degree followed my musicology before you actually pick up the instrument. :lol: On the other ...

Re: piano to accordion

I know some here think playing piano will ruin your chances of ever playing the accordion well but my experience for those with an objective that isn't too elevated is that if you are a competent piano player then you will have a flying start with the PA. I came from 40 years of piano. Of course you...

Re: Learning multiple instruments

I would say the only issue with multiple instruments is the limited number of hours you can spend on each. This is the main issue for me. I'm trying to learn the guitar, love my accordions and enjoy my piano and keyboard. Choices, choices.

Re: Un P'tit Brun D'Musette

Great performance with really nice tune.
Your Brandoni sounds really powerful.
Your comment on the wide register setting is true. It sounds a bit too wide for the musette. Maybe an MM- would work assuming your accordion has that in its repertoire.
Thanks for posting btw.

In these books it is only a few numbers which suddenly pepper the left hand with these types of chords. Not sure where these transcriptions come from but I think as ...
