This is probably the nicest, fanciest version of this polka that I have encountered to date. You won’t find anything too difficult in and of itself, but this is the kind of tune that is incredibly challenging to play cleanly at speed. Kessinger played it rather fast. Look out for accidentals (mostly C#s), grace notes, triplets, and sixteenth notes.
