How they get that sound in Balkan music?
I’ve listened to some Bulgarian and Macedonian music recently and I’m fascinated about their music. It’s not that I like it that much, but the guys who play it have so much skills, at least the accordionists which are the ones I listen to especially.
Here’s an example of what I mean:
What I now wonder, are everyone from balkan superb accordion players or is there some kind of technique to get that sound? They can’t really learn all that by ear, or is it improvising? I want to understand this music. How do they learn a new song? How to they get that triplet sound?
Any links to some melodies (midi or something)?
I feel like a worthless accordionist when I hear this kind of music so I just have to learn how they do this to strengthen my self confidence.
