A hello from Fphlpsnrg

Post by fphlpsnrg » Sat Apr 07, 2018 12:12 am

Still learning since 1955. Absolute rank amateur. This is a case of an old dog learning old tricks. Absolute dearth of competent teachers and instructors in USA. Didn't learn about chromatic button accordions (C-Griff Bayan) until 1984. Looking for insights on material, methods, approaches, techniques.

Hi there,
Great to have you on board and great to have another CBA player around!
Hope you'll enjoy the forum.

Struggling to pronounce your handle but hey! :D
Cheers
Tom

Hello There,

I'm glad it isn't just me who advances slowly.

My only advice is to have as much fun as possible.

Kind Regards,

Stephen.

So you play a Bayan? So you want to play European music?

Bayan can do anything! Any Russian will say so! (Maybe. ;) )

Are you playing an actual strict definition bayan Fphlpsnrg or an Italian/French type chromatic button accordion?
We love to hear about instruments here! :D

Sorry to go on about pronunciation - would "Filpsnurg" be appropriate?
Cheers
Tom

As a rule of thumb, Welsh names are pronounced entirely different than written. Could be "Carl" for all I know. Though it may not be Welsh at all.

Don't think it's Welsh!

You get things like "cá bhfuil" in Irish, pronounced roughly "car will" as I understand it the bh gives the w sound and the f is a relic of previous spelling, or something like that! (Not that I speak Irish, apart from the few words my wife's family slip in here and there.)

I'm sure Fphlpsnrg will tell us soon!

I've been pronouncing it "Phillips Energy".
