Ace Your Test With Accordion Flashcards
Feb., 23, 2008
Like many accordion players, Bill Funkhouser came to the accordion from the piano and figured, “It has a piano keyboard… how hard could it be?” And then, like many accordion players, he struggled to master the layout of buttons on the bass side of his accordion.

So to help others making the same transition from piano to accordion, Bill came up with a novel study aid: Accordion Flashcards. Much like those old cards you used to cram for finals, these cards quiz you on the layout of basses and chords in the Stradella bass button system. The cards currently come in two varieties: a 12 bass set ($7.95) and a standard set ($12.95). Check out this sample card and start studying:

Our New Little Squeeze!
Feb., 23, 2008
If things have seemed a little slow around here lately, we (for once) have a good reason. Last Friday night, Anna gave birth to the newest member of the Let’s Polka team — a bouncing baby girl named Sarah Rose. Weighing in at 8 pounds, 14 ounces, she’s everything we dreamed and more. And we’re already planning a trip to the local accordion shops so she can pick out her first box. Gotta start ‘em young, I always say.

As you can imagine, our updates (and email response times) will be inconsistent over the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you have any recommendations for soothing accordion music that a baby might enjoy during a feeding or changing, leave us a comment.

Posts: 55 01/19/08 at 07:27 PM #4ANTONIO TANGUMA GUAJARDO (q.e.p.d.)

Nació en 1903 en China, N.L., Fueron sus padres, Teófilo Tanguma, originario de General Bravo y Victoria Guajardo de China N.L.
Plática del Maestro Tanguma
Un día de 1927, me ofrecieron un acordeoncito de dos hileras de botones; me lo vendian en veinte pesos, muy barato. Le pedí a don Guillermo García Welsh, mi patrón, el dinero y me dijo: "Pá que los quieres pela'o?, mejor ponte a trabajar, después ahí te echas a perder con la música". Como quiera me los prestó y compré el acordeón que se veía bonito, pero como yo no conocía, resulta que el acordeón era un chasco. De todos modos, empecé a darle de día y de noche. Como ensayaba también en la casa, los dueños me decían: "Mira, agarra tu tequila y vete al monte a tocarle a los pájaros". El acordeón no me duró mucho y así me di cuenta que me engañaron con la venta, de cualquier forma le enganchaba alambritos y lo hacía cantar.
Yo segía trabajando en la labor, nomás soñando en juntar unos centavitos para irme a Estados Unidos y comprar un instrumento a mi gusto. Un día que me levanto, me agarro unas tortillas y una botella con agua y me voy para Terán, a pie. Hice tres días hasta los Ramones y en la estación del tren la pregunté al boletero, hasta dónde me alcanza con dos pesos?, voy rumbo a Reynosa. El boletero me dijo; "son uno ochenta y cinco hasta Anzaldúas". Pues sí, ahí me bajaron y me fuí directo a la frontera que ya estaba muy cerca. Llegué a Corrales y corrí a un estanquillo para comprar galletas, el hombre que despachaba me vió y me dijo "Para dónde vas?", ya le expliqué que quería pasar el río y tuve tanta suerte que el señor al verme hambriento y en huaraches me dió de cenar, me permitió bañarme y hasta zapatos me regaló. Total que él mismo me recomendó con unos muchachos que me pasaron al otro lado y me llevaron a un rancho, donde el dueño me contrató para desenralzar y tumbar mezquitez. Así junté doce dólares, hasta que supe que en la feria de Laredo vendían un acordeón, fui y lo compré. Me costó diez dólares, regresé al rancho cantando y tocando. Los muchachos nomás oyeron el acordeón y se arrimaron unas botellas de vino y ahí mismo si hizo la tocada. Estamos hablando de 1917 que fue el año de mi primer acordeón bueno, porque luego compré do más en Corpus Christi; andaba que me volvía loco de gusto.
 
En 1932 me fuí a China, Nuevo León, y en 1938 para Monterrey. Tenía 35 años de edad.
 
En realidad mis primeras composiciones las traje siempre en la mente, porque cuando trabajaba en la labor, me inventaba tonadas y las repetía silbando. En 1938 terminé la primera pieza; De China a Bravo. Ese nombre you no se lo puse, pero como la pasaba viajando de China a Bravo, así se le fue quedando, fueron unos músicos que me acompañaban los que la titularon. Hasta la fecha, he compuesto más de cincuenta composiciones y las que han pegado más son; El cerro de la Silla, Evangelina, Naranjo, Blanca Nelly, María de Lourdes y otras. Mucha gente me pregunta por qué tanto nombre de mujer. Será porque los nombres de las mujeres me gustan tanto.
En 1945 me fuí a México, pero, de todas las cantinas y restaurantes me sacaban, pues el acordeón no gustaba todavía. Un día unos amigos policías de Los Herreras, Nuevo León, se metieron conmigo a un restaurante, ahí en la ciudad de México, y me pidieron que tocara. Apenas me estaba calentando cuando el mesero nos dijo: "Oiga, aquí no se puede tocar". El más grandote de los policías le contestó: "Nosotros somos de Nuevo León y este hombre del acordeón es Tanguma y su música es tan buena que donde quiera se le debe escuchar": y como mientras contestaba le enseño las pistolas... tuvieron que escucharnos toda la tarde. Lo que pasaba era que la música norteña apenas estaba naciendo, y en la mayoría de los estados del centro y sur, no se conocía. Por eso a mí me gusta Nuevo León, porque en cualquier rancho adoran el acordeón y el contrabajo. No se necesitaban muchos músicos para amenizan un buen baile. Desde 1938 que me dedique de lleno al oficio de la tocada empezó a irme bien, aunque no pagaban lo suficiente, podía mantener a mi familia. Ya nomás con juntar para los frijolitos, lo demás era ganancia. Al principio me acostumbré a tocar sólo porque había muy pocos guitarreros que me acompañaran, pero de 1940 para acá, empecé a organizar mi grupo, casi siempre tocábamos a dueto: acordeón y contrabajo. De tódas mis composiciones, el shotís del Cerro de la Silla es la que más me gusta. Esta composición nació como un chipazo, en un rancho en las faldas del Cerro de la Silla. En la mañana quedaron unos amigos de pasar por mí para tocar en una tardeada; no llegaban y se hacía tarde; yo estaba muy desveladoy tenía mucha hambre, bueno, pues me recosté a esperar, como no queriendo, agarré el acordeón, y ya de rato me gustó lo que estaba tocando, repetí las notas y las memoricé; cuando llega el guitarrero y me dice: "Oye esa pieza es muy buena, no te la había escuchado", no hombre, dije yo, es la cruda y la sed que me están haciendo ver visiones. Tiempo depués llegaron a mi casa unos gringos de una casa disquera que me querían escuchar y les toqué el shotís que hice acerca del Cerro de la Silla; les gusto mucho, y como no tenia título, pues así se le quedó, El Cerro de la Silla. Todavía dicen muchas gentes que nomás la escuchan, y se les mueven la piernas solas, que esa piesa hace bailar a cualquiera, auque no sepan. Me gusta ese shotís, me gusta ver a los niños que lo bailan en las escuelas, en las asambleas y en los concursos escolares. Mi vida ha sido el acordeón y mi familia. Me casé cuando tenía como treinta años: a mi esposa la conocí en un baile, muy bonita, se llama María de Jusús, me gustó desde que la ví, y me dije, yo me quedo con esa chiquilla porque ella es mucho más chica que yo; me casé con ella en 1933 y tenemos once hijos. Ahora tengo casi los ochenta y cuando escucho un acordeón, no sé por qué, a veces me dan ganas de llorar, me da como cierto coraje que allá por los treinta, mucha gente no quería el acordeón y ahora sí. La música norteña termino imponiendo su fuerza... bendito sea Dios que el acordeón ya tiene su historia.

Antonio Tanguma Guajardo, murió el 5 de diciembre de 1989.
Es el artista de música norteña de más reconocimiento nacional e internacional. Sus polkas, redovas, shotises y huapangos, los han bailado generaciones enteras de niños, en miles de escuelas de todo el Norte del país.

Squeeze Me
Feb., 17, 2008
Chris and I have had babies on the brain lately. There’s so much cool stuff out there for kids and babies nowadays! We love these “Squeeze Me” onesies featuring our favorite instrument on the front. Gotta get the kids interested in accordions young, I always say. And these onesies are extra cool because they’re made with organic cotton. This is definitely the must-have fashion item for the new baby in your life.If you missed them the first time, more accordion-related clothing products that we’ve come across and posted about can be found here in our clothing category.

Milen Slavov Teaches Anytime, Anywhere
Feb., 17, 2008
Bulgaria seems to have no shortage of great accordionists and Milen Slavov is one of the brightest lights in Balkan traditional and contemporary music. He moved to America in 1997 and currently performs, composes, produces, and teaches throughout the United States and Canada. I know a few of our readers saw him perform with the Yuri Yunakov Ensemble at the International Accordion Festival in San Antonio last year.We’ve seen some online accordion lesson courses before, but nothing quite like the ones that Milen is currently offering through his website. He offers both custom audio (he’ll send you an MP3) and custom video lessons based around one of four subjects: ornaments in Bulgarian music, Bulgarian/Balkan piano accordion music, phrases and techniques, or improvisation. Even cooler, though, you can schedule face-to-face lessons to be conducted via webcam.Normally, I’m a little skeptical of online video lessons because there’s no substitute for the feedback you get from a real teacher. But I’ll admit I’m intrigued by the possibility of taking lessons (even long-distance ones) from one of the world’s top accordionists. If anyone out there takes a lesson from Milen, let us know. I’d be really curious to hear how it goes.

The Dashing White Sergeant - Scarborough Gala Evening Ceilidh - 2007
In search of "Lars Ek Nostalgic Piano Accordion"
Feb., 17, 2008
Hello Everybody:
I am new to this UKAO forum. I live in the USA and I have been playing the accordion for a while. I will post a few links below.
I am looking for a specific accordion, the "Lars Ek Nostalgic" Piano Accordion, which was manufactured by Borsini a while back. I believe most were made in chromatic button style; however a few were made in the piano accordion style. If you know of someone who would be interested in selling such an accordion, please pass it along.
Meanwhile, feel free to peruse my CD and other info below.
All the best,
Zevy

Rocket-Fuelled - The Gary Blair Ceilidh Band - Hogmanay @ Stirling Castle
Feb., 17, 2008
Gary Blair @ Stirling Castle - Photo courtesy of David PalmerIt was a dreich night at the top of the town and what might well have been the best post-midnight fireworks show yet for Stirling's Hogmanay was semi-obscured by low cloud, but the big yellow Sold Out signs on the road up to the castle told their own story. A capacity 7000 crowd had recognised that Craig and Charlie's best 12-month since there was Sunshine on Leith guaranteed a rousing party at the bells. Certainly, supporting trio the Gary Blair Ceilidh Band were prepared to give their all in the cause. Invited back after last year's cancellation, they are a rocket-fuelled take on tradition: strict-time snare drumming, and fiddle and box operating at maximum velocity. Not joining in the massed bad waltzing would have been churlish and other telling contributions from the punters included a sweetly sung, non-belligerent, Flower of Scotland, and a massed jaw-drop at Blair's lightning-fingered version of Simon Jeffes's Music for a Found Harmonium. The Proclaimers are the only band in the world who can spice up Hogmanay with a song - In Recognition - condemning those named in the New Year's Honours List. Shame Hanif Kureishi wasn't there to hear it, say I. If that nice irony was lost on some, that was true of much of the early part of the set, drawn from their latest Life With You album. It was, predictably, more familiar fare like On My Way, Cap in Hand, the still-hackle-raising Letter From America, and I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) that lifted the occasion (although a few chaps could be seen looking at their shoes during Let's Get Married). Before an unusually low-pitched, if up-tempo Auld Lang Syne, however, the surprise climax was provided by the Reids' big brash cover of Wreckless Eric's Whole Wide World. Now why was that single not the international hit it deserved to be?The Herald -http://www.theherald.co.uk/
