I love the accordion and i have a GCF panther accordion. I played by ear for years a piano accordion and now have switched to the diatonic which i am playing by ear right now. I learn songs from watching videos on u tube but its slow and painful some times . I have come to the conclusion that i need to learn how to read music and ive downloaded senor maestro , however it moves very fast and it might as well be alien hyrogliphics to me. Where do i truly start , im am so confused and now depressed thinking i should just give up and take up knitting . there is so much confusing and overwhelming information and as hard as i try i can not understand it. please tell me where to begin to learn to read music / ive read that i should learn the scales but what are the scales is there an easier way than senor maestro or reading through music theory and not understanding any of it ? ive read through some of the info on this forum and i just dont understand it . please help me understand where i should start and something easy to understand .May be something that explains step by step with a picture diagram. thankyou (Sincerely) The confused knitter. LOL

Don't get discouraged. Check this video out, it's an intro to the G scale.  Keep practicing and things will eventually start to come together.
In regards to senor maestro, there's a slider on the right side of the screen.  it's usually to scroll a web page up and down but in this case it's used to speed up and slow down the speed of the scale.
I've been playing for almost 3 years and i'm FINALLY starting to get the hang of it but i don't have time to practice like i would want to. If you've been playing piano box for a while i would assume that you will catch on faster.

Again, don't give up and take it one day at a time.  Before you know it, you'll be surprising yourself with your progress!

This forum is a great tool for beginners, most people are eager to help.

We used it in school throughout high school and lower level college theory and harmony classes.


Starts you from the very top and takes you very deep into it.

Have fun. Music theory is like a math. You have to REALLY understand the little stuff to comprehend the big stuff.

Take a little bit at a time, it'll be worth it in the long run. Don't skip anything.

The best thing I can tell you is to take it little by little and apply what you learn to your playing. Take your time to learn as much as you can. That's one of the biggest and most common mistakes I see people make when learning music. Because you hear all of these artists on the radio and on TV or where ever, and you want to try and imitate them or do as they do. And they want the skills as fast as they can get them. But what you don't see is how much work it took or time spent practicing to get there. Slow down and take it a day at time to absorb everything and you will see improvements. just don't give up.

Thankyou to all whom replied you guys are great , i think all i needed was a little encouragement. Thankyou betochas for the G scale video and most of all for telling me about the slider bar on senor maestro to slow down the speed,i kinda feel dumb that i didnt realize that before, but thanks that really helped.Thanks tarasco for the encouragement and thankyou Johnleos for the website i will start using it. I have started for now learning la rama de mezquite off of a u tube video and its sounding great , if anything it has showed me that if i set aside at least 30 mins a day to practice, i can do great things , so if i set the same time aside for learning music theory , the same shall remain true. ill try to post a video of me playing la rama asap. ill be practicing music theory but also learning songs by ear off utube just to keep things fun. hasta lluego compas!
