Subject: Accordian sites for beginers?
From: Mike Ireland
Date: 06 Mar 99 - 07:42 AM

Hi.

Would any of the large numbers of mudcat users out there know of any sites that would help someone hoping to learn the accordian. I've picked up a very old Hohner accordian, square in shape with a single row of buttons either side and a lovely tone. I was trying searches on the net and I didn't have a lot of success.

Thanks

Mike

Mike You have a diatonic accordion.It has the same reed arangment as a harmonica. Are you playing a tune on it?

....otherwise known as a melodeon. If you do a search on Google you will score at least 967 hits! Quite a few refer to a variety of harmonium, and the enticingly named 'melodeon home page' is in Japanese - but there are loads of goodies. Start here - HOBGOBLIN or - here and here for some books. Oh and here .

Nope, that's very odd, the mudcat address infiltrated the link. Copy this instead: www.mustrad.u-net.com/basic.htm

Also try spelling accordion with an o, not an a! Or accordeon, the French way.

Mike I have the accordian player from my band here and he suggests that you search for Reed world , also roots world Also check out Maria Kalanimi as she is not only a great melodion player she is also the TOP Finnish button accodian player!!!

A web page with good links may be found at: Those Darn Accordians

It measures up to the "eccentrict stereotype" and has a good time with it.

My recommendaton for a "button box" is to spend three hours simply working a song out by ear, any song, ....once you have that done...you will have the avenue to a plethora of tunes. Have FUN!!!

Boy it's great to see a system work well. Many thanks to those above (in the replies I mean :-) ) for all your information I've now got lots to play with, and to keep my phone bill high.

Ta Mike
