Mazurka d'Auvergne

2008-07-15, tags: mazurka, easy

Again a very simple mazurka, a French one this time.

I learned this mazurka some 20 years ago in Saint Chartier, France from a French lady hurdy-gurdy player named Eveline. In that period, I was playing double bass with a Flemish folkgroup called "Rammenas". I remember we played it from time to time. It's originally played on hurdy-gurdy and/or bagpipe.

I also found this tune in the online RRTunes collection, but in a much simpler form. I have noted it as I remember us playing it. I can't remember the chords though, so I made some new ones.
