This is played in a peculiarly Northern Italian
(From Bologna??) idiom.
Note:
•No use of the basses .
•Notes played on the draw only ( with a quick shunt close of the bellow to permit that).
•The lower bellows strap remains shut throughout.
Great !?

UGH. What a waste of efficiency and technique... I was never a fan of playing while pulling only and not using the bass (there *are* accepted exceptions for bot using the bass, though), and though I love the sound of Conjunto/Norteno music, I simply cannot watch them... it bugs me that much. To me seeing this is akin to owning a Ferrari and not only only using 1st out of 6 possible gears, but placing skinny bicycle tires on it... lol

I love how Matteo Bensi is having multiple conversations while playing Anna. I have a hard time getting through this tune with no ornamentation while concentrating 100% on the tune.
