This is a nice key-changing polka. The A part is in the key of D, while the B part is in A. There shouldn’t be anything too difficult in here, but be careful of the timing and look out for accidentals. Kessinger also used some vibrato, which is denoted in the transcription by a squiggly line to the left of notes to be played vibrato.
