This method is more particularly adapted to those who are beginners of the instrument, or who wish to go over the basics again, especially the coordination of the hands.
The exercises and illustrations are written for the G/C diatonic accordion, 2 rows 8 basses, standard model, a G# being recommended. Nevertheless, if you own an instrument in a different key, you will be able to follow the method either by using the tablature or by transposing the pieces.
