Is your 120 bass going to a good home?

Her 120 bass IS a home....have you seen the size of it ?

:lol:

Yes and no - I'm keeping it at my boyfriend's parents' house in Estonia. I'll come and visit it on holidays! It's not really worth the cost of bringing it back to the UK though.

If only that were true Matt. They do come in handy at times but does require the occasional leap of faith.

I have to confess, I have returned to the UK and left my poor 120-bass behind :( I will record this one day, but for now it will have to wait until I get a bigger accordion in the UK! :tdown:

Hi Pippa. Do you feel bereaved or releaved?

A little bit of both! I'm massively missing all the extra buttons...

Very soulful Jarvo.
The tentative nature of your playing somehow lend an elegant beauty.
My wife heard it as I played it on my tablet and she said that was nice. What greater honour can you wish for?

That is quite a lovely sound, hinting at the tune and drifting, it's got potential, I could stand more of that sort of thing... How are you doing it, I can't work out what's in what hand, have you got the free bass going on or anything?

Thanks Matt.


The left hand is playing only the fundamental and counterbass rows ... improvising on the chord sequence but "walking " the bass , so trying a small freebass method.. I hit the chords accidentally here and there, just trying to exercise trying a little more control

I want to try out the Freebass facility on the Roland, so tiny steps......

That's coming on beautifully! I particularly like the left hand (might give something like that a try now that I have the optional freebass).
