As promised a few weeks ago while talking about the other Flo of diato land, here is a piece played by Florence Pindivic, or DiouFlo fame. The tune is "Negen Rozen," by Mark Söhngen. Next time I will celebrate the duo qua duo.

|Le Maestro, Doug|
There was a Dino Baffetti three row, big button, five coupler Tex-Mex machine in Tex-Mex colors that sounded wonderful but ... defeated me. I think I've found the limit in size for me for an accordion. If I find myself using gravity to assist on the pulls, then it's too much!

Also, there was a way cool dog, and I bought some shirts.

Over on Facebook, a few days ago, wizard accordionist Stéphane Milleret announced that, beginning next September he will be launching a series of instructional videos. These will be posted in the shop on the Mustradem site. Each video will be around 15 or 20 minutes. Over a series of months, the videos will focus on a single tune, beginning with the melody and then moving on to accompaniment and rhythm. The videos will have English subtitles. I will shout from the rooftops when they go live.
Just for fun, here's an instructional video, part of a series that Milleret and Pignol posted a few years ago. Six weeks ago, I featured M&P as Monday Melodeons.
