Music and Melodeons: awesome buttonic blog
Just discovered the fantastic Music and Melodeons blog by a UK button-box player Owen Woods. Lots of posts I’ll have to catch up on about technical details of different button-box accordions, different keyboard layouts. (There are over 150 different diatonic keyboard layouts, because accordionists are fickle, and it’s pretty easy to change on a whim, compared to say, where the holes are on a flute, or the strings on a piano.)
I’m adding it to my “friendly” list over on the right and hope you check it out.
He’s got some nice writing about the ups and downs of being a player too. The supportive comments are heartwarming and good reading.
And a fine post on classification/explanation of the different kinds of accordions too.
