New to this. Are the fingering positions the same on a typical 34 button diatonic from one key accordion to another key? I know the notes are different, but for example, would the positions be the same on a CFG compared to a CFBb, etc.? Thank you.

Broadly speaking, yes, but there are many different layout options which are used. I suggest you have a look on melodeon.net. There is a set of layouts there which may help. In particular note the 'club' layout, with its 'gleichton' in the inner/middle row.

At its simplest - pick up any "typical 34 button diatonic" and you can probably play it in the way you are used to, whatever key it may be in.

Thank you, I will check out melodeon.net. I do know about the gleichton, glad you mentioned that.

Im writing a book on this accordeon but even thought I show the accordeon in differenr keys I only used the key of G accordeon in diagrams since fingering is the same.
