Today’s tune is
I was going through some of my music yesterday, and ran across this tune that I wrote 4 years ago, when I first started composing some of my own little tunes. Great Plains Dulcimer Alliance in Wichita, Kansas is where I got my start in folk music, and I’m so very grateful for them! Stardische Polka was written on the mountain dulcimer for music friends, Pat and Lonnie. They had suggested that someone should write a tune to go with Finnish Polka, so I did. 🙂 It’s in the key of D, since most mountain dulcimers are diatonic and are usually tuned to play in the key of D with an open drone string.
Here is the guitar TAB and notation – Stardische Polka – Gtr TAB
There is a practice video in the menu above – Fiddle Tunes PDF…..it’s played a moderate tempo.
It’s always nice to have a simple tune to work on, so grab your guitar and try it out!
