    Default Jenny Lind Polka

    The Jenny Lind Polka, by me. Upon reflection, it's probably a little quick, maybe a little fast to dance to, but I hope you enjoy it, off-the-cuff as it is. I'm trying to learn some more fiddle tunes, so I hope to post some more videos as I progress. I had fun playing it, anyhow.

    Trying to get my hands to do what I hear in my head...

    Nice. I usually play the whole piece in D. I liked the B part shift to G. (now to work on that)

    Thank you all for the kind comments
    Bill, it is a Haynes mandolin, built by Jerry Haynes of Harlan, Ky. Number 37, I believe built in 2011. Not sure about the wood in it.
