Re: Cleoma Falcon Created a got dam Maelstrom

Right on Boudreaux. That's the way to go at it. Question everything! That's how you find things out. And your typing has lovely prose. LOL.

Meanwhile, while you're searching, some of the guys wanted to hear Chere Tout Tout played in the 3rd position key of "F". Well here you go!

That Belton Richard was one tricky son of a *****! He got it from his dad Claybey Richard who just happened to be the accordion player for fiddler and vocalist Adam Hebert. See the Adam Hebert collection on youtube. When it comes down to it, Adam Hebert could really sing man! And that's because of the diversity of the keys they were playing in. They made it unique. He just doesn't get that much radio play due to his music being on records. But that's changing. They remastered it digitally. Claybey knew his accordion in all the positions! And because of that Belton probably learned positions 1-3 from him. Then Belton hit the music scene playing in all those positions with different key accordions and made the Cajun music sound different. He made it his own style. But no one really ever figured it out, until now.

Here's some Adam Hebert for you. Also, Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys did "borrow" a few of this man's songs as you will see if you look at the titles in the Adam Hebert collection.
