I am thinking about purchasing a Hohner Compadre and I find the CGE tuning a bit too high for my personal taste (I had the CGE tuning on a new Panther that I just returned because of an issue with some bass side reeds too slow to speak while pushing). I do not play with others and I do not use the accordion to accompany other instruments or myself when I sing. Basically, I use the accordion as a solo instrument, playing the right hand 31 keys to play the melody and the 12 left hand bass keys to play chords and accompaniment. And I am still in the beginner phase. I would like to use the Compadre for some French music ( like the "Amelie" movie waltzers) some pop and some easy classic music. Which among this two tunings would you recommend ? EAD or FBbEb ? Thank you for your opinions! (P.S. I tried to post my question also on Melodeon.net but currently they are not accepting new members).
