Re: High Flying Polka Licks and Fills

Do you write/read music? If so, with a bit of effort, you play it on the clarinet, transpose it and practice and play those same fills on the accordion side... that and a lot of oractice would be ONE way. Someone with a good ear could hear it once and a few test runs later have arrived at the same p...

Re: Keyboard action of FR4X

My quick runs on the Morino are drastically faster and more accurate, easily 30% faster or more and with much less effort and a much higher level of accuracy. If I recall correctly, Glenn, don't you have a heavy organ or piano background? That makes your abilities and style of playing the keys quite...

Re: putting 'lift' into dance music

If I met a classically trained player I would be so overawed I would be all thumbs! Does that mean that if I played something, and someone very good at music transcribed it accurately into written music and a talented accordionist played it back correctly as per the dots, it would sound just like m...

Re: putting 'lift' into dance music

As to the pleasure/fun thing I think byearists and folk/trad players in general play for pleasure etc whilst conservatory trained classical types ''enjoy'' being told off for getting minute detail ''wrong'' - everybody to his own I suppose. I once let a classicaly trained piano box player 'sit in' ...

Accordions in unexpected locations

I was just watching "Chasing Classic Cars" on the Turbo channel (a car oriented TV channel) and they were showing a high end vintage car show and sale. Suddenly there was the sound of a mussette accordion and bam, here is Cory Pesaturo playing his Roland 7X at his usual 400kph (~250mph for our USA b...

Re: V-Accordion on an airplane

Its 4:30am for me but the most obvious and east solution came to mind... If possible just rent a V-Accordion locally. Just copy to USB stick whatever your special programming is and then write that to the rental... Instant duplication of your setup! Use while you are there, then reset the unit to fa...

Re: Finding the right accordion

Nothing is wierd, it all depends on the person. In the photography world there are countless arguments about what will give you better photos, a beginner with a high end camera or a super photographer with a lower end camera. This has been proven thousands of times over. Of course the answer is a su...

Re: Keyboard action of FR4X

I cannot speak about the 4X but the 8X keyboard sucks BIG time compared to my Hohner Morino VI N, and yet people like Cory Pesaturo have no issues just ripping with it, so like you, who am I to argue, yet one of the big selling points of a Bugari evo is the improved keyboard. I will say this... It i...

Re: Fr4x editor software

No, thats not it. In the video I was thinking of, he shows and proves why the bellows shake cannot be done anywhere near as effectively on a V-Accordion by demo and computer output samples.

Re: Finding the right accordion

That is a question that has no answer... wait, it does have one, and that is... it depends on the user and what they want. What do you want? When you can define not just your wants but needs, then you can start to make a choice, but thats just a start. Define future goals and needs and you "future-p...
