I just started taking lessons on a full sized
old Italian student accordion. I got it from a used instrument store.
So 6 months later I have purchased the saltarelle clifden piano accordion with swing tuning. To my untrained ears, the swing tuning is the best. It has so much presence and emotion to it. I was worried that I should have gotten dry tuned but now I’m sold on the swing. Any thoughts from musicians knowledgable about this or opinions?
Is it true that Irish music should be played with dry tuning ? The way this saltarelle sounds, I can’t imagine anything sounding bad on it.
