Printed music sources

Post by Glenn » Thu May 02, 2013 10:12 am

Hello Accordionists,

I would like to start a posting on Internet sources for printed accordion music.
This could be a collection of links with a comment on its content.
As new links come in I will edit the posting so it will always remain on top.

Nice one, thank you - I've just printed off Indifference and the Muppet Show theme, although I probably won't combine them in a medley...

It was so nice to see the squeezeboxcircle mentioned. Its just down the road from where I live. They meet on the first thurs of every month to practise the music chosen for the month, and for a general show and tell.

I'd love to Nathen.
Perhaps in my next life I'll get the chance.
It's good to see such an active club and a well maintained website.

There're some Balkan tunes here: http://www.dunav.org.il/balkan_music_scores.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. The ones that don't directly link to a pdf from that page seem to have been transcribed and don't have chords, but the other ones have them. There are also mp3's of many of the tunes elsewhere on the site.

Thanks mjh,
They look devilishly difficult when you gauge from YouTube just how fast and fluid they are meant to be played some of them.

Two links to some Italian tunes. This is Southern Italian music, all aimed at organetto players but could be used by any accordionist as it stands or as a basis for learning some typical licks and patterns in a Southern Italian style. The second set of links are linked to some extent to some You Tube teaching videos by Mario Carbone which again are based on the organetto but could be applied to others, perhaps.

There are some simple dots on http://www.organetto.it/pages/spartiti.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

and down the right hand side on http://www.organetto.net/index.php?opti" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ... &Itemid=66.
