Editorial Reviews

DVD One - Starting Out: The one-row button accordion creates the defining sound that drives the waltzes and two-steps beloved by enthusiasts of Cajun music. Dirk Powell's step-by-step approach makes it easy to start playing immediately. He teaches how to hold the instrument, use the bellows, find the notes, and play "double" (octaves) - the essence of the Cajun style. Includes detailed instruction for playing some of the most popular Cajun dance tunes: La Valse de Quatre-vingt-dix-neuf Ans (The 99 Year Waltz), The High Point Two-Step, Johnny Can't Dance. 70-MIN. * INCLUDES LYRICS * NOVICE LEVEL. DVD Two - Intermediate and Advanced Techniques: Covers topics such as ornamentation, syncopation, phrasing, anticipating the bellows changes, creating rhythmic effects and many other techniques to get a real hot Cajun sound. The songs include The Wafus Two-Step, Lafayette Playboy Waltz, Hick's Wagon Wheel Special, Dimanche Apres-midi (Sunday Afternoon). 70-MIN. * EARLY INTERMEDIATE LEVEL.
