Title: Italian tunes
Post by: Susi on March 16, 2008, 08:08:57 PM
Hi there, I'm really in love with Italian organetto music. I've noticed, though, that most tunes seem to be in odd keys so what tuning to most Italian box players use? Does anyone know if I can find easy Italian tunes somewhere?

This site has a lot of info in English with video:

 and audio clips http://www.organetto.info/inglese.htm

If you can read some italian (or puzzle it out)
http://www.organettodiatonico.it/index.html
is a great site with audio and video clips. If you can't read Italian go to bottome of the page anc d click on some of the links like  ALLEGRA TARANTELLA.divx  to get videos in divx format. You may need to get a divx player.

YouTube has a good number of video clips search for "organetto" I think many of the clips are played on D boxes, but I am at best a casual observer.

Oh, thanks a million for those links!!! I do read (and speak) Italian so it won't be a problem for me. I've watched those You Tubes and they're AWESOME!!!
Hope to find something nice to practice!!!!

Most of the Italian stuff I've found is written in C.  I found a good selection of dots here (downloadable for free as a pdf file).

As has been pointed out there's a good load of organetto music on youtube including mario Carbone who's site is linked above
