Well done Chris. I'm watching your progress with interest as a fellow-switcher. It's very encouraging to see how quickly you seem to be picking it up. Can't wait to get started !
Nicely done, Chris!
I'm curious... what about this song, compared to the previous one, do you think is making it "way harder"? Your change from one-measure bellows to two? The F chord? The ties?
Always interested in where people find the "tough spots".
thanks for sharing - I don't know if I would be that brave to record at 2 weeks.
Please don't take me wrong
I meant to say I admire you for that! Certainly not to imply anything about your playing and learning so far. It makes complete sense and I like how you will build a record of this learning curve you're on.
Congratulations on the progress.
Does Maugain give any guidance re position of the accordion.
For me I'd find it more comfortable towards the middle of the chest - RH strap longer than LH strap.
Your RH does look a bit scrunched up.
Also the PH books are, I guess, for piano accordion - tho' the Maugain book should be an antidote.
eg: I found reaching for the row 3 'b' and 'd' etc hard to begin with but on the other hand the stretch on a PA is more limiting.
Hope you don't mind the comments which are meant to be constructive.
Well done, as far as it goes, but ( apologies) I feel I must caution you against a tendency to fail to give each note full time value: it's a bit like "clipping your speech " or swallowing the endings of words when speaking.
I fully admit to having suffered from this flaw myself
