The accordion is such a polarizing instrument. When used properly it creates a soft, subtle tonal layer that plays off the acoustics of the rest of the performance. When used improperly, it is comparable to scratching cats with chalkboards. Yes, using the whole chalkboard to scratch a cat – it would sound horrendous.
Luckily, I have included an example of the former as the first in a weekly series of proper covers.
