The big bad box
Situation is, Im a fiddler but the other day got caught up in the excitement and bought an accordion form ebay. A piano accordion, Hohner Arietta to be precise for those who care. The whole instrument will be fairly foreign I guess as I dont even play the piano but as I know a good lot of tunes and can read music so thats at least one good thing.
So although the fiddle will still be first instrument, I do intend on putting a good deal of time into this as boxes are fantastic.
I guess what Im looking for is just any hints or whatever, just a bit of good old box players wisdom.
Most of the music I know is Scottish as thats where I live so any west -coasters oot there, any comments will be much appreciated.
I appreciate that the accordion must be a ferociously difficult instrument to play to a very high standard but Im also quite firm in the belief that with much determination, a great love of the music and makingit, plenty of effort an a few drams to help along the way, anything might be possible
