I have researched and can't find an answer to why an accordion in BbEbAb is called Cinco letras.

Hi Ramiro.
Haven't been here in a while, but came across your post about Cinco letras.

It maybe because the "Cinco Letras" (5 letters) is using the German notation of the musical notes.
Bb in German is B
Eb in German is Es
Ab in German is As
The accordion key "BbEbAb" in German will be "BEsAs" - hence, 5 letters - Cinco Letras.

I found this chart on the net and according to the chart F would just be F. Remember A# and Bb are the same note.
