Classical Guitar Music to Play: ‘Golden Crown Polka’ by George Bender

classical guitar notation for golden crown polka with dancers
Edited by Neil Smith

This is a turn of the century polka (1889) written by George Bender for the guitar. It sold at the time in the USA for 25 cents. I have added fingering at bars 7–8, the F sharp could also be taken with 1 (as a part-barre) in order to move up the chord.
