Nice one, thank you - I've just printed off Indifference and the Muppet Show theme, although I probably won't combine them in a medley...

I'd love to Nathen.
Perhaps in my next life I'll get the chance.
It's good to see such an active club and a well maintained website.

Thanks mjh,
They look devilishly difficult when you gauge from YouTube just how fast and fluid they are meant to be played some of them.

Two links to some Italian tunes. This is Southern Italian music, all aimed at organetto players but could be used by any accordionist as it stands or as a basis for learning some typical licks and patterns in a Southern Italian style. The second set of links are linked to some extent to some You Tube teaching videos by Mario Carbone which again are based on the organetto but could be applied to others, perhaps.

There are some simple dots on http://www.organetto.it/pages/spartiti.html

and down the right hand side on http://www.organetto.net/index.php?opti ... &Itemid=66.
