The sound for cajun comes primarily from the diatonic accordion itself. Notes get cut off due to changes in bellows direction. Things are less smooth due tozydeholic
I play the piano accordion and I need to play a song with that cajun/zydeco "sound." Can anyone point me toward a video that will help me with the fingering?squeegeetom

This is a quasi-moderated list, mostly to keep the negativity levels down. Here are a few reasons that would trigger having your posts moderated (also, check out the unmoderated list at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/czunmod):
o No Spam. Sending SPAM to the list, or to list members offline, is not allowed and you will be reported to your ISP. If you're selling something that is Cajun/Zydeco related, include a concise ONE TIME ONLY notification to check out your website. If you're an ongoing participant, you can include a short signature line in your posts with a website pointer.
o Divisive subjects like French/English language politics, French-Canadian politics, Acadien/English politics, racial politics, religion and other cultural hot topics are not the topic here.
o No chain letters or virus warnings, puh-leeeeeeeze.
o There are so many jokes lists out there, and we've seen most of them.
o When responding to emails, please edit out all portions that do not pertain to your reply. It makes reading easier, and makes the digest less unwieldy.
o No flames. Be respectful of each other.
