If ‘The Basics’ is about individual notes and chords, in ‘Beyond The Basics’ we examine notes and chords that are connected, as well as how to create feelings and moods with our music.
Right-hand techniques assume you know Accordion Basics. We examine ornamentation and flourishes of melody, as well as playing melody with more than one note at a time.
Left-hand techniques assume you know how to build major and minor chords. We examine chord movement – moving up and down the bass system, as well as bass techniques that go beyond the standard “oom-pa” rhythms.
