Is There A Limit, To The Amount Of Tunes Played In Each Selection, Or Does It Vary From Region To Region.?
While slow airs are always played in single file, the same does not apply to polkas, slides, reels, jigs, and hornpipes. The most reels I ever heard played together in one go, was 6. 3 jigs, are the regular amount played. I feel the regular amount of reels in a selection, is also 3. Polkas are easier to play, so musicians can belt out at least 5 of them in the one go. Here is my opinion, on the tunes played in a full polka set. It can vary, from region to region. 1.polkas (3) 2. polkas (3) 3.polkas (4) 4.jigs (3) 5.polkas (3) 6. half slide (4) 7.polkas (3) 8. slides (4)
hornpipes (5) polkas (3). let me add, it sounds a bit complicated. Who can tell me more, and maybe even correct me.?
