For starters who are trying to play the Chromatic Button accordion I recently completed a free video course.
The free video course consists of 25 tunes that you can learn to play.
You can find the course on: http://www.knopaccordeon.com

Thanks for your positive comment.
Translating is a lot of work and I need my son to correct me.

The first 9 tunes are already subtitled, Iam working on the rest.
Click on the top in the right for "Click here for the English version"

I forgot to tell that the course is for a B grif model

The only thing I don't see listed on page 1 or 2 is what some good beginner boxes would be for both chromatic and diatonic.

and what prices would be normal/too expensive/ or a steal for both.

Would recommend free-scores.com for free accordion sheet music (as well as other instruments).

I find this fellow's short demonstration to be pretty direct and informative.

He has kind of cemented this notion I have that the chromatic keyboard is the way to go. Also interesting is that he seems to favor the "B" system over the "C" layout. I very much appreciate the major, minor, and 7th chord construction the way he has shown it.

I believe his choice of B was more an accident than anything else.
Often people seem to choose based on available teachers/learning materials except if in a country with a particular tradition of playing.
I second the appreciation of DLL's videos - he's a real enthusiast who likes to try new stuff and to pass it on to others - sort of compulsive teacher.

This is a great book, especially for the right treble hand. Has chords plus their inversions in all different keys. This is the first book I go to when I need help.

Hi Guys - I have just had a Hohner Student IV 40 Bass delivered and I am looking fwd to learning some cool tunes on it. The only thing that puzzles me at the monent is that the bass buttons have a single button near the top which I seem to have to press before I can pull or push the bellows. Is this normal as I have been watching players on youtube that seem to have their thumb waving free? Any help appreciated... great forum BTW

I think you will find that the button is for purging the bellows.
