The Accordion Blog is designed to progress you through various techniques – so start in the Archives with the Month of August 2014 – then Sept, then Oct – etc. Do the monthly lessons and progress through the exercises at your own pace. Each new technique can take as much as a month to 3 months to master – so PLEASE TAKE YOUR TIME.
If you are a beginner – please start with the Palmer/Hughes Book 2 then PH 3 lessons – (Find in the Beginner Link) – take each session and work at least 2 to 3 weeks of each. There is additional theory and additional solos to play at each session level.
