Notes: This is a traditional Finnish polka that I transcribed from the playing of a 10 year old Finnish accordionist on YouTube (traditionally this tune is played in Cm/Fm, but to fit well within the range of the banjo I have dropped the pitch by a minor third to Am/Dm) This is a great tune, with very easy guitar chords. The banjo is tuned to G minor tuning [GDGBbD] and played with the capo on the second fret. The first three parts are in A minor and the fourth part is in D minor. Have fun!!
