Komo yé. I have a single row c accoordian. I have no teacher and have been fiddling around with it trying to play nursery rhymes and such. I grew up in LA my whole.life and recently moved to Tyler tx. Can anyone advise the best way for me to learn?!. In school I played low brass so I do have an understanding of music, but this a a whole different beast..mesi!!

I’m a noob as well. I’ve been using the book from Larry and mike Miller. You can find it online https://www.amazon.com/Play-Cajun-Accordion-Designed-Beginners/dp/0961424591 I’ve seen it cheeper elsewhere. It comes with a cd to hear the music as well.

I’ve also been able to find a dvd set at my local library called “learn to play cajon accordion” by Dirk Powell.
