I'm back from good old Italy now, another place I'd like to go back to! So I thought it was time to try another instrument. I know that the accordion was invented in Italy, but it's very famous there and the accordion that my family has is an Italian instrument. A 72 bass instrument and it was sooo heavy, I couldn't lift it and it was too big for me to be able to play both my left and right hand. You play the right hand like a piano and the left hand does chords. Very, very tricky, but great fun! I think one of the best players at the moment has to be Karen Tweed, so here is a movie of her playing. Maybe if I practise hard enough I can be like her? Maybe I need to grow a bit more first! Here's hoping!
lots of cuddles
