I bought my first box in July 2009. I do wish that I had discovered the accordion earlier, but where I grew up, it was only used for atrocities... [my apologies to all fans of German Volksmusik] I'm making up for the late start by playing obsessively, though.

You feel about Volksmusik the same way I feel about cheesy Scottish Dance band music probably for much the same reason , don`t get me wrong, I love the pipes (living in Wales for 40 years can`t drive that from me) and like solo Acc players like Will Starr but give me a good German Polka loaded with Steirisches and Bartones over a cheesy SCDB anyday of the week ..

That's a thought,whats a cheesy SCDB sound like? I may have played in one for years,we did play English folk as well.

Just for consideration - this survey has been running for over 6 months, so the the replies are now outdated. Is it worth starting it afresh and asking members to poll again?

I believe the answers could be derived by extrapolation.
