You have to watch this - what more can I say?
I've been enamored with diatonic accordions for Cajun, especially French music, but in Folk music all over the World - for some time. Found some info on their tuning that makes them unique - seems they tune some notes out quite a bit.
So amazing - the HUGE number of beautiful tunes that have been composed for such a 'limited pitch' instrument!
Bagpipes is another noteworthy instrument that has spawned unique music - same reason.
Grateful we get to share their music on our Fiddles!
🤣 I used to tell people they'd have a long wait for some custom projects, but ten years is ridiculous. Like to know where she finds anyone willing to wait that long - for ANYTHING!
...lot of good it would do me if I was dead before I got a bow! 🙄
The Glass Artist had a great team working with him - be wonderful if more Artists would consider music for project collaboration.
