CAJUN ACCORDION DISCUSSION GROUP
I also wanted to mention, I really don't understand why people have to be Nazis about speed at jam sessions.
For instance someone smirking and saying, "this is dance music, you're playing too fast." Yet there's no one dancing and that same person loves Iry LeGeune, Marc Savoy, etc.
Is it only that the Gods of Cajun accordion can play fast at jams?
Don't get me wrong, I understand why people want it slower at a dance.... but come on, at a jam?
Off course,Larry is right,in my haste in trying to humor you ,I forgot to congratulate you, go get them Tiger.
I know you're humoring me, I'm used to Interweb humor ;)
How did it go?
Went great Maz, awsome turnout. I could use a little less Data Entry and more accordion playing. My tendons were in a flaming uproar last night.
Thanks for askin' :)
Tell me about the tendons. And its worse if you're a dancer too. Holding your partners weight with the same arm that's gyrating all those buttons on the accordion on other nights is a recipe for pain.
I'd only played for 45 minutes at a stretch before our first gig. Then I had to play two sets at 1:15 each.
I was sore. Still am.
