    This is an Italian Tarantella. The lyrics are pretty interesting. If you check out Lou Monte’s version he talks about  ”Lazy Mary you’d better get up. We Need the sheets for the table”. It helps if you have some Italian in you

    This is a beautiful love song written by Buddy Holly. You wouldn’t think it would be suited to the accordion, but I’m pretty happy with the end result

    This is an old country waltz which has been around for a lot of years. I play it in the key of  ”D”.  The other 2 chords are  ”G”  and  ”A”  or  ”A7″

  4. Folsom Prison Blues

    This is a terrific country song ideally suited for a jam session. It’s a 3 chord song played here in the key of  ”C” such that the other 2 chords are  ”F”  and  ”G7″.  The chord changes are obvious. This same chord progression is used for thousands of songs.

    You may also recognize this song as  ”It’s Now Or Never” recorded by Elvis Presley. It’s a perfect accordion tune featuring 3 basic chords. I’m playing it in the key of  ”C” with an F minor thrown in for good measure.
