Tuition in the highlands
« on: September 09, 2012, 11:57:59 AM »

Hi all
I bought myself a D/G Black Diamond melodeon at Whitby this year, and I'm not looking for tuition. I'm afraid that I'm 60 miles north of Inverness, so deep in accordion country, but I'm hoping someone may be able to offer me help in my efforts to learn to play my new aquisition.

Did you actually mean to say that you're _not_ looking for tuition? Or are you just looking for a bit of moral support? I'm sure that you've seen a variety of on-line tutors on this forum, not mention a plethora of books.

Congrats on buying the box - I had a go on one at Sidmouth and it seemed pretty respectable.

Well I have picked out a few tunes, but have no idea about left hand work, so I guess I need tuition, AND moral support. I'm too old for immorai support now  :-X
