You do a good job with it after seeing yours I took mine down my timing was out of wack and I didn't have the turn right any suggestions on the turn?
By the turn, do you mean the accordion lick he plays after the verse?
The way I hear it, he starts off with a big push on buttons #4 and #5 (using middle and ring fingers), then quick pulls on button #1 (using index finger). Lather, rinse, repeat.
Or do you mean the part he kicks off shouting "remix", and then the "way down, way down"?
THANK YOU!!!!!! Yeah that's what I meant on the record he hollers out remix then plays high notes but on all the videos I see it sounds like low notes I'll try it out when I get off work this evening
Hey I just reread yeah the remix way down part
One of my favorite presidents and that comment applies to the 4 alias Greezy uses, and anyone else that rambles on with all that music theory stuff for Cajun music music.
No Jerry, it applies to your childish outbursts.
You wwas right on the lick now what about the remix way down part?
So, I'm not really doing it like Chris does it. He's jumping down into the lower octave at times, I haven't really sat down to figure out exactly what he's doing.
What I'm doing is all on buttons 5, 6, 7, 8 - that nice comfy "home" position. I'll try to tab it for you. button number with ' means pull, no ' means push
58 (octave blend), 7, 7' (x 4 times)
5' 6' 7'
(repeat entire pattern several time)
On the main lick of the song, I'm mostly playing it on buttons 5 6 7 8, with some index finger stretches to the higher buttons. But I'm sure he's doing lower octave jumps in there in spots.
Many of the younger generation of Creole players like to hang out on buttons 2 3 4 5, with some index finger stretches onto button 1. That's the position they play those cool accordion breakdowns. Keith Frank is the king of breakdowns. I've yet to fully master that skill.
Cool thank you I'm going to see if I can get it ro work for me
Jerry, so nice to see that the Luddites have not been forgotten.
When I think of progressive Cajun music I also think about Rock N Roll. Remember the phrase "Rock and Roll will never die?" Well it did. I will take my music Comme C'etait
Everything has it's place and so I am trying to figure out how music theory fits into the genre of Cajun music. The group name is Cajun Accordion Discussion Group. The information shared,really has nothing to do with playing a single row diatonic accordion. Now keep in mind I know very little about music theory so I am really looking for some guidance. As important as it might be when playing many genres of music can any of explain that to me?
