    ok
    anybody wanna explain why an accordian needs a million buttons?
    are there really that manyy notes to play?

    and somehow
    that guy can play them all extremely fast.
    his fingers went all blurry.

    that guy is definately an o-g

    Just because I have no life.... that was kinda cool, but at the same time, it`s incredibly easy to film it slow, then play the clip in double time. If it was real, then congrats to him. If not.... better luck next time.

    All I have to say is: that guy must be a GOD to the ladies as well at the accordian ;)

    Honestly, he`s incredibly skilled with his fingers, but he played it too quickly and without life.

    If you want to hear how a real accordionist plays that song, get (or at least preview) the greatest accordionist who ever lived, Myron Floren`s, version of the Flight of the Bumblebee. It`s ecastatically good. (yes, i play the accordion :-)

    From seeing his head movements, it looks like he`s been sped up a little bit to make it more impressive.

    Granted, he was probably playing it normally in the video, which is nifty on the accordion, but his movements don`t look natural.
