meet enrico




I found him on craigslist...he needs some work but I think he was a good deal.

no one will ever take the place of big red though...he's my main squeeze :)



{have a wonderful weekend!}

That lovely blue! But red is lovely, too - easy to love both.

Very awesome! I just got a teal accordion last week, so let's make a lovely-colored-accordion club!

Also, I am very impressed with your progressing talent. I've played piano since I was 8, but accordion is much harder!

Chicago has been having weekly international music nights downtown. Apparently next week is an accordian-fest. It made me think of you.

Sometimes you just gotta spice things up! Enrico looks like he'll be quite handsome after a haircut and a shave... or whatever you do to clean up an accordion.

You play really well! It's as fun to watch an accordion being played as hear the music.

Semper fi,
Ann

Enrico -- I love him. He's like the Liberace of accordions -- so flamboyant and glitzy.

I continue to be amazed at your progress. Please tell me you were already an accomplished piano player!

thank you everyone for your comments! I'm glad people are okay with this blog evolving to include my accordion adventures :)

thanks so much for the compliments on my playing - learning is definitely a challenge & I have to admit for every one time I play it well there are 10 times I screw it up! I did play piano when I was younger but I was not particularly accomplished - still it helps a lot for the right hand to be familiar with the piano.

speaking of playing I need to practice...I better go!

wowsers! Having said that,I'm ALLERGIC to bees, but I have to say, your story made me feel a bit warm & fuzzy towards those fuzzy little creatures :)

Yay for you, you did a good thing!

Oh my goodness, I can't tell you how much I LOVE the accordion! He is beautiful!!! I took lessons as a child for a short time{I think I was given lessons by a door to door salesman??}anyhow, I had to quit taking lessons because my Mom sent me away for the summer and for some reason never started back up. To this day I believe I'd be a professional traveling accordion player{just because that sounds like the BEST job in the World}if I'd continued those lessons :D
You're really good...off to watch your video again~ and day dream :)
