I love to play this kind of stuff - but then, I'm an amateur, so it's not like I do it all the time. When I was a kid growing up, my teacher used to confide that he and his colleagues hated playing certain tunes, like The Alley Cat, that they had to play over and over at weddings, bar mitzvahs and other affairs.
Like Ralph, I can't play worth anything after one beer. My lips go and I can't see the music, either.
Perhaps you'd like to get another fakebook that may have more interesting polkas and other such "vintage" dance tunes. Click here http://www.gis.net/~iolair/pubs.htm
