Re: Silent practice on acoustic accordion

I've seen classifieds of accordions with "silent registers" for MIDI equipment. I don't know what that means. It is simply a register that blocks off all the acoustic reeds s that on the right hand you can use only the digital/electronic sounds. In my case, it looks like this. Note the register ide...

Re: Exclusivity.

Donn, what does the expression "to have that to fall back on" mean? I think it's a difficult expression, and I can't even find it on the web. It means we can use it in place of something else. For example, I can say something like "though I am an architect, my current career is making money as a mu...

Re: Here's Some Free Accordion Sheet Music for Oktoberfest

Jerry, that would be awesome to hear people playing these. {} :b <snip> Well, and as you know it's just kinda fun to do a blog. :D I could arrange that easily enough, if you like, for the one that you just posted.

Re: Waiting for an OS Update for the FR4x

That is too bad... and surprising that this issue never came out earlier. I kind of doubt that there will be updates for the older units, and a new update just came out for the 8X that amongst other advantages, permits a much quicker boot time and to function with their new editor, which of itself a...

Re: Castelfidardo Visit May 2018

Same here. All said, though going with a group of fellow accordionists is great, I think that what I would prefer doing is researching where I would want to go, what I want to see... and then do it either by myself or with 1-2 other friends that are at least semi-local to me. That way I could see wh...

Re: Never A Bad Colour.

What is it about accordionists and motorcycles? I also own a bike, but it kind of reflects the "technogeek" in me. It was the most technologically sophisticated motorcycle ever made in it's day, and even today ranks up there... it is a Honda CX500TC. A water cooled, shaft driven, fuel injected, turb...

Re: tinnitus...

The volume of an accordion is not damaging to hearing, unless you own a Roland and play with the headphones at full volume all the time (and we are talking months/years here). An acoustic, then, IMHO, is a mask and though it is not a cure, it is a break from the constant high pitch if anything else....
