Jesse Polka aka Jesusita en Chihuahua

Great tune I learned at a session in Atlanta, GA

Re: Jesse

I’d love if anyone could explain to me why the MIDI file puts this as a 3/4 Waltz tune, despite everything I’ve done with the abc notation.

Re: Jesse

This is actually a polka from Mexico incorporated into the American (esp. Texas and SW) repertoire.
