ISBN 9780786646968. 8.75 x 11.75 inches. Transcribed by Michel Lorin.

This collection presents 39 lively French and American tunes for piano accordion, with companion CD providing backup only for 27 of the songs. Recommended for the intermediate player. Because this book is a reprint of a French edition, the Solfege system is used for indicating left hand buttons (Do, Re, Mi instead of C, D, E, etc.), but chord symbols are also given in the standard letter-name format. Other musical markings are also in French. Lyrics are not included.

    background CD is a great idea. You play the lead the CD plays the background. You can't go wrong with this book.

    Simple tunes in this book actually sound like complicated French music when played, so you can fool your audience. (I'm a beginner.) However, symbols used are not defined and there is NO fingering guideline, so this "easy" book can be a challenge. There is a CD accompaniment disk with...

    the book (hence, the price); use it if you like a thump-y beat.
