Wow, I just found this...
Thanks for linking me here...

Thanks for the criticisms too, everyone... My bellow work is better now... I'm 100% self taught so I'll take any advice I get...(in my defense that accordion has some air leak issues, so my breathing is all messed up on it)

Halvor, a little brutal, but I appreciate the Tom Waits quote... I am certainly no gentleman.

As someone who does play an accordion I can say he is good, considering there is no sheet music for the songs he performed. So he probably "tabbed" that out on his own which takes a lot of time.
But, his use of bellows is something he needs to work on.

A perfect gentleman is someone who knows how to play the accordion. And doesn't.

Anyway. Great idea, awful musician. Pushing/pulling timing is way off, so he's missing the starts of a lot of the notes. Very annoying. When playing wind instruments, you don't freakin' breath in the middle of a note, and neither should you change from push to pull.

I raged @30 seconds. Dangit.
