The second volume of “Play Accordion” for advanced players is not based on typical playing material, but on living examples of the world music genre. The motto of this book is "Music around the globe": Musette waltzes, Eastern European and Sirbas and Horas from the Jewish Klezmer repertoire, Tango, Afro-Cuban rhythms, Blues and Jazz are the main topic. 
The chord knowledge on knobs and buttons is expanded and challenged through exercises and pieces in the basic jazz harmonies, the sense of rhythm will be increased through the basics of Rock, Blues and Swing and the syncopated accents of Latin music. A number of workshop-pieces with accompanied playback recordings will help improve the timing, give the opportunity to try small improvisations and be prepared for the interaction with other musicians. In other words: Once more a lot of new playing material with explanations and many exercises.
