60’s & 70’s Music

I have promised to write accordion arrangements for songs popular during the 60s and 70s. We have now hit over 110 songs from this era!!! These are “pre-press” which means – I am counting on you to spot any errors and let me know.

Here is a list of the songs already uploaded to this sight. (Click on SOLO CATEGORY or Search – if they are not LINKED IN RED)

    Best Accordion site! I was forced to practice the accordion when in Jr High and hated it. I’ve picked it up now and then, since….but really didn’t do much. Now that I am retired, I’m getting serious with relearning and progressing further than i did as a teen. I’ve just joined a local old time fiddler group as a challenge and it’s great fun. I’ve learned a lot from your site in just a few days! Please send me a password. Thanks!

    HI Shelia — Just found the blog — great practice material. I have not played much lately. Unfortunately, Pasadena is a long ways from Cypress… Would you send me the password please? Thank you.

  7. Pamela Tom said:

    I love your blog. It is a wonderful resource for accordionists and people who want to learn about the accordion. Thank you for your work!

    Sheila, great newsletter, look forward to future issues, will spread word in Abq community about the newsletter. Enjoyed you in Las Vegas. Jane Hendley

  14. Okay Shelia, you asked for suggestions so here is mine:

    “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles

    There is a unique 2 measure syncopation in this song that is so cool…if I can ever master the rhythm. Perhaps your arrangement might help.
