hi my name is David max accordions I'm

here to teach you

intro to playing the accordion the

cordilla is a great instrument to learn

how to play the reason is you're your

own band you have the keyboard which

allows you to play individual notes you

also have chords which accompany those

notes

you have 120 base notes which allows you

to play individual base notes

you have major chord higher boards

seventh chords the finished chords

you also have rhythm like the 4/4 timing

you have 3/4 timing which is the wall

speed 1 now you add them all together

and you have yourself a song

now go grab your accordion and let's get

started before we get started let's go

over a few accordion parts you have the

shoulder straps the shoulder straps

should feel comfortable they shouldn't

be pulling the Cardian towards your

chest and pressing it against also the

bass strap should feel comfortable it

should be able to maneuver back and

forth your hand if you have to adjust

this face strap there's a little wheel

right here you can turn back and forth

which will open and close it you also

have the bottom of the keyboard it

should set in the center of your legs

this way the chord Ian doesn't shift all

around on you okay I think we're ready

to go let's get started

the first thing we're going to learn is

a very important note which is going to

be the middle C now you ask where do you

find the middle C the middle C will

always be found in the center of the

keyboard and it's always right before

the two black notes if you notice we

have two black notes three black notes

two black notes three black notes the

middle C is always ranked before the two

black notes so let's take our thumb and

let's press the middle C ready play one

let's try it again ready play one very

good now the second note we're going to

learn how to play is going to be the F

now the F is the fourth in the key of C

which we are in so let's all count up

together let's first find the middle C

again and how do you find the middle C

that's right it's ranking for the two

black notes so let's take our thumb and

let's hit it together let's count it up

that's one two three

there is yen with our fourth finger okay

let's try it let's all hit that F

together ready

play one

Oh let's hit it again one two three

now this time we're going to hit the F

and we're going to go back to the C and

then we're going to go back from this go

to the C and go back to the F are we

ready

one two ready play one

Oh

see

off all right now the third note we're

going to learn how to play is the G now

the G is the fifth of the key of C and

in the scale so we're going to count up

from the middle C and how do we find the

middle C that's right it's right before

the two black notes so let's take our

thumb and let's press that C and let's

count up one two three and that is G so

C that's right right before the two

black notes and red two ready play

off very good now we're starting to get

the hang in the sea you're probably

Center going well why are you picking

the the 1 4 & 5 notes well because this

is we had the key of C

the fourth in the sea

and the fifth is the gene

and back to the sea

most of your music that you have out

there so this is how we're going to

slowly get started on this
