~Not particularly Accordion but given the interest in classical music being shown by some of you more intellectually inclined, and I preclude myself from that august group, here is a great value for money site ........$5.99 per month and all the free sheets of music that you can eat !!..........If you only download one score each month I reckon you got your money back :tup: ....compared to what you would pay in the shops :tdown: .......Happy Squeezing {}

A Spanish site with tangos and Cantabrian music, It has short audio clips played on piano below the sheet music.

I uncovered a printed off copy of this I downloaded from a Geocities site back in 2000, and thought Id check to see if it was still online somewhere...

The complete preceptor for the accordeon, containing a scale for the common or whole toned, and also a scale for the semitoned or perfect accordeon ; together with a large collection of popular and fashionable music, arranged expressly for this instrument (1843) Howe, Elias, 1820-1895

http://archive.org/details/completeprecepto1843howe

It contains a variety of folk and trad tunes from around the British Isles as far as I can tell.

Heres one that not only has sheet music but has free software you can download to transcribe your own. You can then upload it again for storage or to share it with others.

Ive been using the transcribing software to type up a couple of tunes for myself so I could add chord names, fingering, etc. and it works really well.

Hi boys and girls - some great links above thanks. The ones I commonly use are :-

http://www.thesession.org

http://www.folktunefinder.com

A few regional variations of each tune and some have the basses included. Being able to hear before you download is a real boon.

Good luck,

Garth

Jim D. Usually I see music for accordions on the website I use, but am I missing something on the partitionsdechansons site? Or is it just music in the treble clef? Thanks.

Most of the music here is in the Fake Book format. With a lead part in a treble clef and and chord symbols above the bar.

Thanks, Jim. I didn't even know what "fake book" meant until I looked it up. I guess it's good as several instruments could use that kind of music with just the basic chord symbols on the top of the measures. For a not-too-experienced guy, I guess I'll stick to the accordion music sites but I can see where those would be good, especially when you want to make your own arrangements. Thanks.
