100 Irish Polkas Book and Soundtrack CD Package

by Dave Mallinson

This is a book and CD together package, Book only and Cd only are also available on this web site.

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.

Important note from Mally the person who compiled this collection.

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. However, I consider it unwise to learn a tune from only one source and I would suggest strongly that, when learning a new tune, you pay heed to settings in other books, on recordings and what you hear down the pub. It is important to note that the settings in this book are greatly influenced by the instrument I play, the D/G melodeon. I've made a conscious effort to allow this to happen in order to give the book its own unique character.
