  • Cybele - What did I buy?

    Cybele - I got me an accordion of some kind, but I don't know what it is. Bought it off a guy in Algodones Mexico for 10 bucks. It has three buttons on the left - one just breathes and the other two seem to play chords in different keys. Different notes play on the in and the out. On the right side are 7 keys that just cover holes up. Again, different notes on in and out like a harmonica. The top two are backwards from the others. The bottom one seems a little messed up in the reed, but what do you want for 10 bucks?

    What is this darn deal and do you know of any websites about how it is played? Just messing with it I got to playing some tunes at least as well as a drunk gorilla with a harmonica.

    Thanks for the links, Cybele. I'm sure it's a toy, I just wasn't sure if it was a toy version of a real type of accordion or if it was just a toy. It makes me grin and tomorrow it'll probably make the kidlets jump around and dance. What more could a guy want?

    Y'all coming through Phoenix anytime soon?
