So i've played piano for a few years and am currently in the act of falling out of practice. Mostly because I can't not associate the piano with Brahms and Mahler.

I am highly interested in picking up an Accordion not only because its similar (more similar than most other mobile instruments), but I'm a big fan of roots music, and I love its harnoic abilities.

Problem is, I don't know **** about accordions. I'm going to do some research but as with most things, talking to someone who knows the ropes is a quicker way to quicker. And I'd prefer to get started sooner than later.

Any help would be appreciated. Also, i might be possible inhereting a button-accordion...is that good?

Who was it who said that a gentleman is a man who can but doesn't play the accordion?

edit, just remembered it was Tom Waits...

I'd say because theres no portable instrument that compares. If you know what you're doing, you would slaughter other instrumentalists.
