Tune Polska efter Kings Selma Olofsdotter

Also known as:

  • Polska from the playing of Kings Selma Olofsdotter
  • Kings Selma

There's something wonderful about a tune with an empty first beat! I've written the tune as I analyse the rhythm, but you should listen to these versions to make your own mind up, especially if you're not familiar with polskas:
...the last of which has some different notes, altering the mood slightly and emphasising the sun-coming-out-from-behind-the-clouds feeling of the second part. And listen to the way the harmony varies under the repeated phrase in the first part. These three versions together make a fascinating comparison!
