Any putz can play the guitar, but it takes a real man to play the accordion!

White men such as Al Jankovic here typically make do with much smaller models:

So much for stereotypes. Jimi's was no bigger than the one Keith Emerson had:

Exclamation Re: Oh my word! Look at the size of that thing!

I'm saddened to report that Buckwheat Zydeco died of lung and throat cancer early Saturday morning in Lafayette, Louisiana, the town where he was born.

Born Stanley Dural, he learned to play the organ at an early age. It was joining Clifton Chenier's Red Hot Louisiana Band as an organist in 1976 that enabled him to experience the enormous fan appeal of live zydeco music first hand. He took up the accordion in 1978 as a result and after a year's practice formed the Buckwheat Zydeco and Ils Sont Partis Band.



R.I.P. Stanley Dural Jr. - a.k.a. Buckwheat Zydeco (1 November 1947 - 26 September 2016).

Here's Buckwheat Zydeco's rendition of the unofficial anthem of the Cajun people:

Not this guitar!



I saw Cheap Trick in concert a few years ago and it took 2 roadies to carry this monster on stage and put it around Rick Neilson's neck.

Re: Oh my word! Look at the size of that thing!

Any more suggestions of great tracks with prominent accordion parts?

Boooo!!!

I studied accordion for 2 1/2 years as a kid. Just like any other schoolwork, I had no problem learning what I was taught which in the case of accordion lessons was playing from the sheet music. I had no real understanding of what I was doing though. It wasn't until 20-25 years later that it dawned on me that what I'd been doing with my left hand with the bass notes was keeping the beat. At the time I regarded the bass as just other notes I was playing. I had no ability to play "by ear" therefore.

The accordion was consequently just like everything else for me, all left brain intellect, no right brain feel.
