Big Nick’s Learn to Play Cajun Accordion, Volume 1 (DVD)


SKU D-LPA1_BN Categories , , ,

This DVD is intended for beginners who are first being introduced to the Cajun Accordion. Significant time is devoted to the study of the left hand and the playing of both hands simultaneously (which is generally neglected in other Cajun Accordion lessons.) Big Nick walks you through the basics including:

– The Cajun Accordion and its basic components
– How to hold the instrument
– Finger placement
– Tablature
– Playing the scale in octaves or “doubles”

Simple melodies are slowly introduced with on screen tablature that indicates where to place your fingers. From there, the bass side is added, ornaments are demonstrated, and you even get the opportunity to play along with Big Nick with right, left or both hands. This training session will “fill-the-gap” where other beginning sessions leave off. Song selection includes:

– Hey Mom
– Cowboy Waltz
– Colinda
