When I see someone on youtube playing a song in tono de DO(C), which Do scale are they exactly using? Because there is the sencilla one, the thirds, 6th etc etc. I am a beginner to all of this, and I had a couple of questions regarding music theory.

Also if it's in the Scale of DO, are all of the notes that are played for that song in the same Scale. Meaning you cant go outside the box.

Third, should I learn my scales para adentro or para afuera? What is easier? Or better? 

Thank you.

Their using a combination of all three scales. & i think its better if u learn them both in and out.

To your first question, They use all three depending on the feeling you wanna give the song or the range on your box. On your second question, yes all notes are from the same scale. But that doesn't mean you cant go outside the box. Study your theory and you'll find out more about that. And your last ?, learn as much as you can. In and out. The more you know the better.

Sometimes you have to go outside the box.....  I think there's a canto we sing in SOL,  and I use a RE menor somewhere in there.  Also in there is one in DO, where I use a LA mayor.  So yes sometimes you have to step outside the box !!!

Yeah, all these are probably transition chords. From tercera back to primera, for example some songs have this: Eb > La mayor (puente) > Bb

Well first I want to thank everyone who took time to respond, I had all of my questions answered.

My dad and I are both learning it at the same time, and I keep stressing to him about how important it is to learn the scales but he doesn't seem to care. About 30 years ago he used to play a piano accordion, but he wasn't ever taught formally and knew nothing about music theory. We bought a button accordion in Tono de Sol, the Hohner Panther and I'm trying to push him to learn all of the scales in and out and then the chords eventually. What advice would you guys give me to tell him? Ya esta viejon mi apa. All he wants to do is look up songs on youtube and learn to play them, which there is nothing wrong with that, but he can barely walk and he already wants to run.

Thank You.

We barely have about 1 month learning. I've realized it will take time, patience, persistence and determination.

Keep at it !!!  It does take time. If you ask me.... the accordion is the toughest intrument to learn...  If it wasn't for scales or theory I wouldn't know what i know now !!!!    I really recomend Sr. Maestro....
