Helpful videos/channels for playing accordion
« on: April 15, 2021, 09:25:04 PM »

I was suprised as I found out that there are people who like to play the accordion in this community, so that's why I created this topic.
I started last year in summer and found some useful (in my opinion) channels and videos, that might help. A downloadable PDF file is attach down below.

Version 1 (15.04.2021)

Ronen Segall -

    • Coordinate both hands together:
    • Which fingering on the left(bass) hand:
    • How to properly wear the accordion:
      (Note: I learned the 4-3 method)
    • What's the point of it all?:
      (Note: Not that important maybe, but helped me, when I got mentally stuck)

Cathie Travers

    • Some tips for left arm / Bellows:

Saclephrase -

    • Playing chords only with fundamental and counter bass buttons:

Note: He did also videos about playing with all five fingers on the bass (Five-Finger Stradella-Bass Technique (FFSBT)). And does videos about music theory, how chords work together and stuff like that. Really good channel!

Jackson Parodi -

He did alot of covers of video game soundtracks. And by alot I mean A LOT! That was one reason why I started playing the accordion last year in summer. And because my grandmother plays accordion too and I want to spent time with her playing together. :)

Anyways, here are some videos I find helpful or entertaining or both:

    • Trouble playing with Bass Buttons:
    • What Music Theroy Is and Isn't:
    • His Playlist of his videos about music theory:

Here are some covers of him, I like:
    • New Bark Town & Nation Park:
    • Song of Storms in all 12 keys (with Mario pants!):
    • Yoshi‘s Island - Athletic Theme:
    • Yoshi‘s Island – Overworld:
    • Super Mario Sunshine – Delfino Plaza:

His channel contains alot of covers so feel free to search for certain music pieces. Maybe you will find something, you like. :)

That is it for now. If I find something more, I will let you know. Maybe.  :P

My MuseScore Profile - I try to arrange/transcribe (mostly) video game music for the accordion. So have a look! :)

That's a lot of resources, thanks! Maybe I'll look at some of them when/if I get back into accordeon.
