The Complete Guide to Mastering Left Hand Bass/Chord Patterns
The Mighty Accordion is a truly unique and much-needed guide to playing the bass side of the accordion. A comprehensive collection of progressive exercises guide the student in learning and mastering bass/chord patterns. For the beginner, the first few chapters assume little or no knowledge of the instrument and teach how to play simple accompaniment patterns. Uses of the major, minor and seventh chords are explained, with numerous exercises offered to develop skill in executing various bass/chord accompaniment patterns. For the advanced player, latter chapters present exercises on chord combinations needed to play sixth, minor seventh, major seventh and ninth chords, and other advance techniques. Throughout the book, explanations are offered on the workings of the instrument and relevant music theory. Play along with a 2-CD companion set featuring many of the book's exercises played at both a slow and moderate tempo.
