Beginner button accordion
Hi there I am quite new to the site my own name is James I’m from Kerry.
From a young age I always had a love of traditional music especially the button accordion.
But I never had the confidence to go out and learn to play to be honest.
Older in years now I am drawn to learn to play it.
I’m 31 is that too old?
I was hoping I could get some advice if you did not mind.
What would be the best type of beginner b/c button accordion to start to learn to play?
Do all b/c button accordions have the same key layout?
What does swing tune mean and what is the best mean of tuning for traditional Irish music or is there a need to worry about that when starting out?
Is there any good button accordion teachers in Kerry?
I like styles of playing such as Danny o Mahoney and Damien Mullane.
Thanks in advance for reading.
Happy new year also
