At the time, it looked comical - I was a skinny 14 year old and that thing was bulky. I learned to mimic a couple songs but I learned fast that I wasn't meant to be a musician - oh, well... :) Hugs and best wishes with your day, my excellent friend - be good to yourself.

And - you remember Benny Andersson (ABBA)? He is also accordionist, even if he was often seen playing the piano. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benny_Andersson
