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).

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”.

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.

Tiroler buam polka (A. Keuschnigg) [Sheet music] [Tutorial video] [Play-along audio] [Play-along video]

Popular polka by Alois Keuschnigg (Austria). It translates to “Tyrolean boy polka” and was popularized by Austrian band Zillertaler Schürzenjäger on the steirische harmonika (button accordion) in the 1980s. My arrangement for piano/chromatic accordion is based on the Zillertaler Schürzenjäger version.
