Re: Casali Verona

You see, for me, though I am now more a digital accordion layer than acoustic (for the moment, that changes with my mood... lol), If I saw a new Borsini and a 100 year old Hohner beside each other, my hands would be itching to pick up that old Hohner more than the Borsini. Sure the Borsini would be ...

Re: Using the left hand thumb

...but in the other hand it is not very wise to connect accordion only with small group of music genres, at least I thing these times are over. Maybe I did not properly write down my thought, but I did not say anything about connecting or disconnecting the accordion with small groups of musical gen...

...by the way. I'd be fascinated to know whether Myron Floren and "The Lawrence Welk Show" are known outside of the USA! Have you had the pleasure?
It was certainly popular in Canada!

...but I can honestly say that I have tried. It is my genuine belief that acts of kindness have a positive affect on society in general, and benefit individuals immensely. I am also a very strong believer in Karma. What you do in the world eventually comes around back to you. Doing good gets you go...

Re: Using the left hand thumb

I've discussed this in the past, and it is very interesting, but how often does one need the thumb? That depends on the instrument one has and the music played. For me, I have never had the need for this, and survived quite nicely, however, if I was 7 years old again and starting over, the system th...

Re: Free sound expansion downloads for Roland FRX`s

These expansions were loaded when I received my 4x. All my orchestration banks are now full. If they make more orchestras, where do I store them? There are 4 expansion slots, Roland makes only 4 expansions. (Alpine, Dallapè, Orchestra and Balkan). Like we discussed before, how many programs do you ...

Re: Another Big Gig..... Principles.

There are jobs that pay and jobs that do not pay. If it means that you might lose them if you refuse payment, then it would be silly to not accept the payment, but you can then on the spot turn it around and either make a donation to this or any or establishment within your community, This process a...

Re: Free sound expansion downloads for Roland FRX`s

Those who visit the Roland group will know that these expansions have been out for many years (I believe the first one was out about 10 years ago?), however, shortly before the release of the 4x (about 6-8 months before the release), they made them all free. Having them is nice, but let me tell you....
