Hi everybody, my name is Casey and I've been playing piano accordion for coming on two months now. I mainly play saxophone but I decided to learn accordion as well because I love the sound and felt like a challenge. I picked up a 48 bass Bai-le (Yes, I know) in good condition for what felt like a bargain and the rest is history. So far I am self taught. To learn a song, I look up a chord progression for the bass side and then try to play the melody on the treble side by ear. I've taught myself various traditional Russian and Finnish tunes, as well as some from the Pogues and other modern bands. Loving the journey so far, thanks for letting me join.
