m3838 Posted January 19, 2010 Share Posted January 19, 2010 Or are they just accents (and does this amount to more or less the same thing anyway, fo that matter?) Old Russian Bayan tutors adn even high level score books have bellows marks /\ - means pull and \/ - means push. Sometimes the marks are |_| and reversed upward. Bellows direction and reversals are of outmost importance. The reason they are omitted is just sloppiness. It makes it much more difficult to actually play all the pieces and then mark suggested bellows direction. May be the reason it was a norm in Russian books is salaried position of the authors. Not anymore. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
