    Difficulty Level:
  • March 01, 2009 excellent tune book

    An enjoyable and well-written book with helpful fingering and some challenging tunes thrown in. Not for a beginner. I would highly recommend this book to have fun with and to keep good finger dexterity intact.

  • December 13, 2006 Best book on Irish accordion by far

    This is an excellent book. It has everything an accordion player interested in Irish music wants: plenty of tunes, melody ornaments, interesting but simple bass lines, a cd of examples, chord boxes for jamming with a guitarist. A real gem!
