I'm in a pause mode in my accordion lessons, I plan to start up again this fall. However my instructor (we are trying to get him to do a CD.) is out of this world. I watched him play all the "heavys" like "Flight of the bumble bee, Hall of the mountian king, and he makes even simple tunes sound grand. He plays some of the old rag time tunes, then swtiches from playing the bass on the left to playing the tune there and the chords on the pinano keyboard. Sounds like all the tubas came alive. Someday I'll get there. BTW I using the Palmer & Hughes books. These books have been teaching accordion (classic style) for over 50 years and still work great.
Good luck and keep squeezing!
