Re: Silent Night

We don’t want any drugs cheats Jerry :D HAH! Ok, that cracked me up... I suddenly envisioned pee tests prior to any performance videos, just to make sure we're all on the up and up. :lol: No pipe organic matter admitted to accordion contests. Not a contest...christmas party...anything goes...😉

Re: Bad Habits

Let me illustrate: here (as long as concentration lasts), the first bass note in the phrase is slowly starved (well, we don't want to drop that hot potato on the ground), the chord is taken more in a red hot style and the counterbass is somewhat gentler taken.

Re: Mark CBA right hand buttons

To just mark the C's and F's I have used stick on 'Bhindis' before....tactile feel worked well for me....you'll find on ebay easily... Bindis seemed ok, bhindi's seemed to involve sticking an Indian meal to your accordion! :D Well spotted...must be that smoked salmon and cream cheese that makes my ...

Re: SILENT NIGHT - Group participation!

Good call Jerry...be really nice to see/hear forum members interpretations of a well known melody... Be lovely to put styles to names and open our minds a little to others perspectives rather than just 'talk' about subjects... Let the festivities begin....let's use this seasons spirit to share a lit...

Re: Silent Night

Re: Another notation question

This may seem obvious... but are you sure it's a waltz? I used to assume that everything in 3/4 was a waltz, until I learned about French dancing, and specifically mazurkas. They have a different emphasis to match the dance step; it's quite subtle. Good call Anyanka.....any chance you can elaborate...
