Accordion Beginner Tutor Vol. 1 + CD
The best selling button accordion tutor in France with Audio CD. No prior knowledge is needed, this book starts at zero and will teach you everything you need to know about the button accordion. The tunes are mostly French but other folk music styles such as Finnish, Italian and Irish are included too. The book was written for the GC accordion but the tablature works equally well with any other diatonic accordion. It will just sound a bit lower or higher.
With no teacher and no internet, this book taught me (Ole) how to play the diatonic accordion. I still know all the tunes in the book by heart. If you want to start from scratch and teach yourself, there’s simply no better book than this one. 7th edition in French and English. VAT-free price for non-EU customers: 21.50 EUR.
