Re: I want to buy a beginner cajun accordion

A 1040 is a very specialized instrument.

I have owned them and they have no relevant application to any western music.

Re: I want to buy a beginner cajun accordion

I agree!
But I just got started. So the sound doesn't matter that much.
I have to try out, if my finger could do the job (i‘m 69) and how to mange to play bass and melody at the same time.
I am looking for a better instrument on eBay.

How would you do it, learn the melody first and add the bass and chord later, or start with the first to bar, for example, playing left and right hand together?

Thanks for your help!
