This is the music of Django right? Specifically where does the accordion fit in? We don't say the same things guitars do, and we don't say the things the violins do. So what do we say?
What is your approach?
Who do you copy?
Have you transcribed solos?
I really hope, we don't get alot of, 'I play long notes' answers!! Yikes. : )

    My biggest influences for vocabulary and approach are Marcel Loeffler and Richard Galliano, with Ludovic coming in a close third. From those three guys I have studied and mined them for their approach and concepts. How they comp, phrase, solo, interpret melodies.

    "We don't say the same things guitars do"

    Well...This probably doesn't happen to anyone else, but sometimes we only have one guitarist at our jam session and I find it helpful to be able to imitate la pompe so he can take a solo. Left hand plays bass+chord on 1 and 3, then a little flick motion to brush the bass button ahead of the stacatto chord button accent on 2 and 4. Seems to work.
