Old Slovenian Accordion music chord notation question

• Jan 15, 2022 - 20:28

Hi All - I'm transcribing some Vilko & Slavko Avsenik accordion music. There are chord notation in the bass line and I understand that that part of Europe would use "H" instead of "B". What I'm wondering about is why some of the chord symbols like "H" and "E" are underlined? Any ideas?

I also see that these transcriptions often use lower case for beats 2 or 4, I'm guessing that is a articulation cue? As in "if it is lower case, don't emphasize the note"?

Comments? Thank you!

I'm French and no accordéon ...........but I think : For H , OK it's like B .....For Maj and Min, Maj for the tonic and min for chords g7 is chord G7.......for underlined, I'm not sure , I think it's for the lenght of the note (ex a quater underlined .....an eight......??? I find this, it's complicated, and in French...........https://musescore.org/fr/node/303123

Capitalized ones are Bass notes.

The underlined ones are the notes on the Counterbass row.
This row is located on the bellow side of the regular bass row, also known as the thirds (1st row).
Thus: for example, when playing C D E F, the E-note can be played immediately using the counterbass button on the bellow side of the C bass note, without the need to jump five buttons upwards.

Lower-case letters are chords.
For example, when you see something like "C c C c" it means: "C bass, C Major chord , C bass, C Major chord".
