hohner 114, beginner
« on: November 22, 2013, 01:05:59 PM »

Hello !  I have just bought a Hohner 114. This cheap melodeon because I have never played accordeon so, I would be very thankfull if you could help for my first steps.
I must say that I don't even know yet in what key is the Hohner.

Welcome Annieviolette.

If you look on the bottom of left hand strap you should see the key of the instrument stamped into the leather. Once you have found that out the keyboard layout is available HERE.

Here is a video of me playing my 114 in D.

If you ahve any specific questions please come back and I'll see what I can do.

Welcome Annie, all the info you need is here. Just a case of looking through the threads. Which can be difficult.
Don't hesitate to ask , if you have a problem.  ;D

Here is a video of me playing my 114 in D.

By the way (off topic) that's the first half of a tune on the New Victory Band's Album "One more Dance and Then" where it's called Looking for a Partner and attributed to James Braidwood.
I wonder how that's connected to The Britannia Two Step ???

The NVB tune sounds very like two different tunes (in different keys) joined together, of which yours is the first.
