David Lange, Pearl Django's accordion player, has posted a lesson on pitch bending:

He said that's the one thing he gets asked about most often and I believe it -- he does it so well. You can hear a great example at:

    Really great accordion tutorial :-)
    This pitch bending reminds me harmonica overblows technique.

    Hi - I'm new here.
    I have been playing for a while and I got me a "new" accordion. It's a ca. 1940 Excelsior and it has these 4 "rocker" switches that allow one to control how much each reed block is activated. When using the low "bassoon" reed and opening it only partially, one can bend the notes really well.
