Na brniku – Hansi polka (B. Prešeren) [Sheet music] [Tutorial video] [Play-along audio] [Play-along video]

This is an underrated/underplayed song from Alpski Kvintet/Alpenoberkrainer album “Trachtenfest” (German market) and “Pozimi Na Bledu” (Slovenian market, 1982) which is very fun and unique. It was written by trumpet player Ivan Prešeren’s brother, Brane Prešeren. The original recording was played in F#, but for ease of learning I’ve made the learning material in F (which also sounds good).

Gremo na Dobrčo – Danke für die Gastfreundschaft (V. & S. Avsenik) [Sheet music] [Tutorial video] [Play-along audio] [Play-along video]

This is a relatively late Avsenik composition from the early 1990s, recorded by Avsenik’s studio ensemble. The Slovenian title translates to “Let’s go to Dobrča”, German title translates to “Thanks for the hospitality”.

Kjer slap šumi (B. Kovačič) [Sheet music] [Tutorial video] [Play-along audio] [Play-along video]

Boris Kovačič wrote countless unique songs that were recorded by Ansambel Borisa Kovačiča along with his wife, iconic singer Stanka Kovačič and son Matej Kovačič from the 1960s through to the 1980s. This waltz translates to “Where the waterfall rustles” and was recorded by Ansambel Borisa Kovačiča with son Matej on accordion in the 1980s one of their last albums “S Polko In Valčkom Po Sloveniji”.

Gretl Boarischer (Traditional Austrian song) [Sheet music] [Tutorial video] [Play-along audio] [Play-along video]

‘Gretl Boarischer’ is a popular Austrian traditional instrumental, commonly played on the diatonic button accordion (Steirische harmonika) but is fun to play on piano or chromatic accordion as well. It’s most commonly played in Eb, so I’ve arranged sheets in Eb as well as F.

Tam kjer murke cveto – Dort wo das Edelweiss blüht (V. & S. Avsenik) [Sheet music] [Tutorial video] [Play-along audio] [Play-along video]

“Tam kjer murke cveto” was released on Avsenik’s first Slovenian LP record of the same name and is one of Avsenik’s most famous waltzes which instantly became a hit with Slovenians around the world. In English it translates to “Where the Murka flower blooms” which refers to the Slovenian Murka flower.
