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).

Zapleši z mano – Ich denk an dich (D. Novato) [Sheet music]

This is one among the many pretty waltzes written by Denis Novato, Slovenian-Italian world-champion on the diatonic button accordion, his album “Gruß aus Triest”. The Slovenian title translates to “Dance with me” and the German title translates to “I am thinking of you”.

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”.

Boris Frank – Ali že igraš #1 [Book scan]

In the 1960s-1970s several editions of sheet music books with Boris Frank’s compositions with lyrics were published under the title “Ali že igraš” (Are you already playing). Boris Frank was a popular name in the early days of Oberkrainer music in Slovenia in the 1950s-1960s. One of the few books that I have in my possession is a 1st edition which contains the songs “Razgrajači“, “Če Te Srce Boli“, “Rdeči Nageljni“, “Stari In Novi Prijatelji“. All songs were released onto albums by Boris Frank s Svojimi Kranjci (Boris Frank und seine Fidelen Oberkrainer).
