Today’s tune is


This tune is sort of a polka, and is simple and fun to play! It’s in Am, so, for course, I love it. LOL From my research, it appears that it’s commonly accepted to have Flemish origins, but I found this interesting discussion concerning a tune called Bear Dance, which is so very, very similar to Baerendans that I suspect they are the same tune.   I’ll leave that for you to decide.:)

Here is the free guitar TAB and notation for it – Baerendans – Gtr TAB

Check out the “Fiddle Tunes in PDF…” page for a link to a practice video with the tune played through several times. 🙂

There wasn’t much in the way of videos for this particular tune, but here’s a sample.

And another…

And, on this bright summer day in the Midwest, get out your guitar and play. You’ll be glad that you did!
