Re: Memorising Music

Here I was already to learn the secret to memorizing hundreds of pages of music in 3.5 minutes, but they didn't give many hints, did they? :lol: I always found memorizing music a big chore, and never a pleasant one. Lots of repetition does seem to be key and at one point, I did manage to stuff somet...

Re: Everyone's a Critic

How cute... lol. The cat is obviously doing what cats do. That is taking control, playing and demanding affection. :)

Re: Stolen: Bugari-Evo Accordion

Sad that crap like this had to happen. I hope it gets returned. The fact that it's #1 isn't as important as fact that it was stolen.

Re: Left hand "sweat" band

Ok, here is the big reveal. I took one of my older rash guards, cut it up and with the help of my mother and her skills on the sewing machine, I made a "beta" unit to test out. It fits snug, is very comfortable and is slippery as heck. Because the material is made to be in rough environments, it's s...

Re: Joe Rossi

In my conservatory days I would have practically called you a heretic for playing anything other than what was written down on the score (lol).

Re: Accordion straps

I didn't have a budget for myself (whatever it cost to get what I wanted was what I would pay). For a general recommendation telling someone to just go use the widest straps available might not be the best idea. I know some people that 3" isn't wide enough (that's where I am), and others where a 2.5...

Re: May 6th is World Accordion Day

There is a vast difference in the amount of accordion events in Montreal vs other places... man, it pains me to see that basically the only events I can find in all of Quebec is the yearly accordion festival in Montmagny. I am sure there are more, especially during this coming summer's jazz festival...
