Re: Digital, MIDI or?

Hi Garth. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I believe a pure digital accordion (e.g. Roland V) is a different instrument to an acoustic accordion. I own both and enjoy using them both. They have differing playing characteristics, limitations and strengths. If you want silent playing then th...

Don't ask.......
There is a lot of good accordion music from German publishers so it's worth getting used to.

Re: Accordion in the late night talkshow

Great video of the performance. Really interesting combination with refreshing sounds and harmonies. Was eGwn Cresens playing a sort of bandonion with "regular" button layout?
