This CD is to accompany the book of the same name.
The title says it all, a book crammed with juicy polkas to get your teeth into. A must for polka lovers as well as any other musician who is perhaps looking for easier Irish repertoire. Why not give yourself a break from the reels and jigs occasionally?
"The lowly, oft scorned polka": take no notice, don't believe a word. In this book you'll find 100 really smashing tunes, some familiar, many not so familiar; play some slow, play some fast, play some very fast. With good phrasing and rhythm these tunes will stand their ground against reels and jigs any day.
100 tunes (100 polkas) with chords, classified and alphabetical (with alternative titles) indexes. The book also contains a comprehensive bibliography and discography listing every single book and recording referred to whilst researching the tunes.
