CAJUN ACCORDION DISCUSSION GROUP
The "riff" using the #1/#2 buttons was the heart of
the tune, and everything else was played around
the riff to develop and support it.
i.e., the riff came first.
On a 9-button box, the song would have never got invented
Incidently, thanks for the compliments .. that
was done a couple of years back now ..
You can also get a cord on button 1,2,and 3 on push or pull. so maybe there's use there. Hummmmmmmmm!
I really like the German made 114 Hohners.. plebian and cool.. lots of good music has been made on these
I have had handmade Itailian, Quebec and Cajun made boxes but for all around fun... 114
That said.. if you want a smaller lighter box and still have 10 buttons.. consider Claude's Castagnari..
It's in 12TEt tuning and a scrid off dry.. but it's an outstanding handmade box..
I play Irish and Quebec on 1 rows.. I use the #1 button..
