B-System arpeggio fingering

Im trying to figure out a basic fingering for a simple 2-octave major cord(root position) arpeggio.
I cannot wrap my head (or fingers) around the concept.
Any B-sytem arpeggio fingering guides out there?

Heres a video of someone playing the arpeggio on a C-system.
Makes me want to chuck the B in favor of the C.

-cheers,
Leighton

you can work it out from here...
hope that helps
also if you compare to craptigers video youll notice that B system is basically mirror image of C system
Good luck

Is this what youre looking for?



I found that in a bayan (Russian B-system) book. (1 - thumb, 5 - little finger)

Im a beginner piano accordion player so I mightve misunderstood your question.

Do you have a reference to the book you refer to? Would be helpful to a number of us here on the forum.

This specific example is from "Самоучитель игры на баяне" by "А. Басурманов" (basically, "Teach yourself bayan" by "A. Basurmanov"). It is the 1989 edition.

There is a Russian website with a collection of Russian accordion/bayan/garmon books available for download. I am not sure how Soviet-era copyright and whatnot works, so I am not sure if I may paste the link here.

Most of the Russian piano accordion books I've seen include this kind of fingering guides so I am pretty sure the bayan ones will too.

I found a website with a bunch of scales and arpeggios. They are only single octave arpeggios, though.

http://as-sol.net/publ/metodicheskaja_stranica/applikatura_gamm_i_arpedzhio_dlja_bajana/1-1-0-108[/url]

Heres a quick list of translations:
ДО МАЖОР: C major
СОЛЬ МАЖОР: G major
ФА МАЖОР: F major
ЛЯ МИНОР: A minor
МИ МИНОР: E minor
РЕ МИНОР: D minor

And inside the PDFs:
Гамма: Scale
арпеджио: Arpeggio


Alternatively, Google for баян арпеджио (bayan arpeggio) and use the translator. The website I mentioned will actually end up in the result.

Thanks a heap, Morne!

Just the kind of things I've been looking for.
There is practically nothing on b-system in the English language and my bugling attempts to find Russian exercise books got me nowhere.
I'll spend some time following up the leads you given us.
