The Forum Is Changing
Hi folks. Shortly this forum will be migrating to different software and, in addition, we will also have a new website address. To migrate all the posts, users, etc. will take a little time so there will be some downtime on the forum while this is done. I am trying to do this sooner rather than later so it may not be possible to give you prior notice of the downtime.
Once migrated to our new address, visitors to will be automatically redirected to the new website address.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused, but the change to the software has now become really necessary.

US manouche style forum

Post by maugein96 » Sun May 13, 2018 4:23 pm

Anybody who is interested in the manouche style might find topics of interest in the link below.

There aren't many English language sites on this music, and whilst it is principally geared towards guitarists, it does contain some accordion content, even if it doesn't get updated very often.

There are also various French language sites available, but I haven't been on them for quite a while and would need to google them again.

The manouche style isn't quite my bag, although it is inseperable from French musette. As a guitarist I obviously have an interest in it, and did consider it fairly recently. However, playing acoustic guitars with very light 10 gauge strings and a pick the size of a shovel is something I'd need to have learned long ago.

Wasn't sure if this should have gone under "jazz" or not, but the only thing I know about jazz is how to spell it. ... z-manouche
