Would it be too huge a leap to apply this to accordion...

Will have to disagree with that. I use my left thumb on the diminished row occasionally and my air button is thumb activated. So 10 fingers used here. :)
It is a good looking chart and probably could easily be adapted.

Thank you for sharing.
What a great visual chart to illustrate, and help relate the intricacy of playing the piano---and many other instruments.
Can you share who published this chart, and where I might get a copy ?

Chickers,

The attached file is a PDF I made from a "screen copy" of this thread. I can send you the PDF if you want.

And if your accordion has a chin switch you can get one more body part involved. :)

I don't know where this fits in, but there's also the bellows that are in use for modulation and in the case of accoustic instruments they have to be in motion to generate any sound. I've know a few pianists that have attempted to play a piano accordion and given up because of the bellows.
