Ok so i met up with this one guy for a possible band. he plays the accordian. Now im not ripping the accordian, in fact he's very good...plays bassline melody and sings all the the same time, but i mean asside from like polka what kinda styles can you play with an accordian...i wanna be able to not only play the slow stuff but some kinda fast stuff too.

Does anyone have any links to bands with accordian players?Or just names if their commercial bands...Im pretty sure theres no way he wants to be a background player...i dont even wanna think about asking...bruised ego bit and what not...

thanx

Actually im joining his band...rite now im only playing chords. It makes me seem egotistic but i think that that accordian might end up holding him and be back...i dunno when the last time he wrote a song was...and he's gigging a lil bit...like once a month he said...so yea

um heres a link...the band isnt all that good, but im hoping to help push it along a lil bit like my last one...they met once every 3 months...then i poped up and they met about once a week...our a bassist was one hell of a flake though...but yea getting off topic now

Ry Cooder has used accordian prominently on some of his albums - "My Name is Buddy" and "Chicken Skin Music" are the two that come to mind.
Go with it. Accordian played well and not in a cliched manner is really good.

P.s. Picked this up from "Red Cat till I die" from "My name is buddy". If you mike an accordian up and distort it right (a kinda mild overdrive, I think) it sounds ****ing awesome. Really, really mean.
