Re: New Effect's

Theremin is not pure sine. Sound generation happens at radio frequencies, one oscillator is fixed and other pitch is capacitively controlled by hand. Audible frequency is frequency difference(subtraction osc1-osc2) between these two oscillators. Something similar happens like in regenerative radios....

Re: Viva Tenerife

I learned it by ear. I used mostly this version



Some bars are from other versions to get better idea what the actual melody is, singer is so emotional that is little hard to get exact notes :)

Re: Accordion Waltz by F. Fredriksen

Timing in trio is bit uneven due to very uneven spring tension. Previous owner had probably tried to correct row height but have failed and causing uneven spring tension and uneven height.

By the way, if anybody knows other recordings of this tune please let me know :)

Re: Using the left hand thumb

Thumb is not strict requirement but considering tehcnical possibilities that accordion has it is a little shame that using thumb in left hand is brought up only quite recently.

Re: Accordion on the Airplane

It is one way trip, but I prefer protection and just in case if they don't let me to take it with me. If all goes well I order new soft back-bag when I have lived some time in tenerife.

Re: Accordion on the Airplane

Probably trip from Estonia to Tenerife waits me in near future and I must take my accordion with me. My 5 reed Accordiola Jazzmaster probably don't fit under seat nor overhead compartment. Shipping it with DHL is quite expensive, but I plan to try Pelicase solution https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sz...
