Polska efter Magnus Olsson - Learn the tune

Key: D 
Tuning: GDAE (CGDAE)

One of my favorite Polskas from my home town, Arvika, in the west part of Värmland. Magnus Olsson was a farmer, but he and his brothers were said to play fiddle so much they didn't take care of the farm properly. 

I've tried to avoid improvising this time, playing the arrangement I've written, so that you can play along.
