Many time seeing live bands, Ive seen the keyboard player switch to an Accordion during acoustic numbers - or when a 'carnival' feel is required (Springsteen, Cracker, REM to name a few). During recordings I've used accordion patches on my Nord 4d, and way back on a Korg X5d.
I want to start using the real thing.
Does anyone have any suggestions of where to start? Pick up a rental? What size? I'm literally going to be doing wheezy comping pads in G and C, not exactly 'flying finger' polka's or Cajun music.
A concertina? I don't even know what that is....
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
