Alexander Poeluev PA video lessons
Master class type video of special PA techniques in difficult passages:

Very advanced level of PA playing, and these ones are in Eglish.

He also has Russian videos with PA technique for advanced players.

These videos are a great thing for us amateurs to watch and pick up a few new tricks.
Thanks,definitely look forward to watching these.
these videos make me think about getting proper lessons again
Bang! Thanks for this discovery, Stephen!
Completely new ideas for me. I’ve never had an accordion teacher so the idea of “glide” with all fingers is really useful. Of course, I use it in piano for blues notes all the time, but never in this way.
Okay. Time to practice....
BTW, what is that crazy-looking purple accordion?
Bugari “Blue 72”, Tiger Combo ‘Cordeon, Iorio Concert Accorgan G Series (electronics removed), Hohner 1974 Melodica (Piano 36)
The purple and white PA is an AKKO, a Russian make.
For some years, you can have accordions painted, sprayed, printed, ... in every possible colours combination.
You can send photos and have these sprayed on the accordion body.
I have seen photos on the bellows of Italian organetti. Weltmeister can also print or spray pics and photos on the bellows of accordions or on the body of the instrument.

This Poeluev video is about paralell thirds on the PA, secrets from the masters, video number 5
It's in Russian, but you can follow the sheet music and the numbers indications in the video:

The AKKO is in my opinion the nicest-sounding Russian accordion.
You can hear a direct comparison between similar Bugari, AKKO and Jupiter (button) accordions in this video:
(The "unbranded" accordion is a Russian Jupiter, the one with the Jupiter label on the accordion is a North Korean one.)
