Säkkijärven Polkka: the video

Here’s a video version of a Finnish polka that I posted earlier as an MP3. This time I’m playing it on my Gold Tone OT-800. The banjo is tuned gEGBE.

Sakkijarven Polkka

A Finnish polka that works for contra dancing. The banjo is tuned gEGBE. As with other tunes that have more than 2 parts, you might want to play the A and B melodies alone until the dancers are used to the dance, then toss in C and D for variety.

Played here at a brisk tempo for contra dancing.
