Thank you, Andrea.September 11, 2019 at 4:35 pm #10985
Unless I am mistaken, the vibrandoneons from Victoria came as either piano keyboard or CBA accordion keyboard. Will these new vibrandoneons offer both keyboards?June 23, 2019 at 3:15 pm #10863
Great playing and the circular breathing is impressive and inspiring.November 2, 2018 at 3:29 am #10396
I’ve been using thumb = 1 and it has been working out okay, possibly because I wasn’t playing much guitar. But since I started playing the guitar more frequently I occasionally get a little momentary confusion between the two notation systems. Thanks again for your thoughts.November 2, 2018 at 3:08 am #10394
Thanks, Jerry. I wasn’t referring to the fingering itself but rather how the fingering in notated.
Classical guitarists (like myself) use the left hand numbering 1 (index) 2 (middle) 3 (Ring) 4 (little finger). Tight hand is P (thumb) I (index) M (middle) little finger in not typically used or notated.
I am curious if anyone plays both accordina and classical guitar and if they notate their fingering in a way as to avoid the confusion of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 meaning different fingers on each instrument.
Since I learned classical guitar first, I have a 50 year habit of thinking 1 means index finger (etc.), and P means thumb.July 23, 2017 at 1:45 am #9091
Thanks. That’s a good idea. I just wondered if someone had a special interest in accordina/melodicas. I’m in the USA and there is a good accordion repair man nearby.May 11, 2017 at 7:44 pm #8876
I just looked at Martin Maurer’s site and saw the accordina you ordered. I wonder how it sounds compared with the Marcel Drew accordinas with matel sides. Best wishes.

Was your accordina a special order? I don’t see any wooden options on Marcel Dreux’s website.
