About me and my five row chromatic
Zero-SetteL40 Accordion with 120 basses
I've composed more than 20 tunes for the accordion. I've made some of them available in notation (draft and 300 DPI GIF's as well as Postscript) and in sound files (AU/RA/MID) as well. To the tunes.
This is Gary Blair from Scotland playing a Uniform Keyboard!

Note! - I don't own all the accordions in the gallery and I'm not selling anything. I've got requests for price information!
Take a look inside this Accordion
Here's Sven, 100 years old! He started playing when he was 91. Unfortunately, he's no longer among us. He used to play diatonics (durspel) and harmonicas. He was having hard time selecting instrument when the key was changed. He was the only one not playing a chromatic accordion in the accordion club.
I know there's a lot of talented composers out there. Just play around for some time on your keys and sooner or later you'll have a brand new tune!
No contest right know but check out the waltz competition and the Polka competition.
Read about what's probably this biggest squeezing event in the world!
A lot of pictures and sound files from 1996
And there's also the Walter Eriksson Musikfest at Vasa Park, Budd Lake, New Jersey, USA!
