Three comments

Las Perlitas Polka (Little Pearls Polka)

From PV O’Donnell’s CD "Donegal Fiddler." Learned from violinist Lorenzo Martinez on a road trip to New Mexico.

The form of this one is a bit unorthodox, at least for Irish music: it acts more like a rondo in classical music. So I just wrote it out the way he plays it.

That D section: I wrote it as quarter note triplets. That’s not quite right, but it’s closer to the feel than using a quarter and two eighth notes.

That’s way cool, Swisspiper. Thanks!
