The Bear’s Polka

From the playing of Aidan.

First time through the tune, with the ending notes adjusted to loop back into this setting’s A Part.

The Bear’s, X:2

From the playing of Aidan, second and third time through the tune.

Basically, they’ve shuffled some of the components of X1 around for the A Part, and adjusted pick-up notes. They instead start on Bar 3 and go up until bar 7 (of X1), then bar 2 (of X1), then bar 1 (of X1), and end with bar 8 (of X1).
