Why not give yourself a break from the reels and jigs occasionally?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. 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. Important note from Mally. The tune settings in this book are all 'session friendly', i.e. you can learn them exactly as written and know that you will have a perfectly acceptable version.
