Reviewer: John B OBrien from Enumclaw, WA United States
I have played piano for over 40 years, but am an a neophyte accordion player. I bought this to learn some basics. It's an adquate book for very basic purposes.
Most accordions in this country are 120 bass piano accordions. The book starts out with reference to a 12 bass instrument there is no mention of other bass button configurations, other than a chart of the buttons on a 120 bass instrument on the last page. The exercises and practice tunes are predictably simple ad a bit boring, but it's difficult to put catchy tunes in a book for beginners.
One criticism is that throughout the book the word "ledger" is mis-spelled as leger. Overall the book is adequate and fairly priced.
