Dave Mallinson never had the luxury of a satisfactory D/G melodeon tuition book. He is completely self taught. Knowledge has been hard won by trial and error, through endless hours of practice, playing innumerable gigs and taking part in countless traditional music sessions. Dave has condensed the tricks, techniques and ideas, slowly amassed throughout five decades of melodeon experience, into this book and CD, ensuring you reach your musical destination in the optimum time.
