How to Play Diatonic Button-Accordion * Volume Three by Henry Doktorski teaches how to play the second row of buttons in the right-hand. This edition is a continuation of the lessons taught in volumes one & two. The one row button-box is more challenging to play due to the limitations of right-hand pitches & left-hand accompaniment. A button-box with two right-hand rows is much easier to play.
