OMG! 

I hit the mother lode of Swedish music! 

...almost went into shock when I found all these & I've spent the last couple hours sampling tunes! 

What a great site to get familiar with some Nordic music! 

 

Stefans Musik - Stefan Linden

 

Scrolling down the Home Page, I found an unbelievable amount of Swedish tunes from each Province/County!  There's sheet music pdf's AND mp3's, even andrastämma - which are duets arranged (along with more mp3's) from Stefan Linden, where he's added a 2nd voice to most of the tunes!  I believe it says he used Finale software.

I see all the common dance music styles, PLUS some I've never heard of! 

I found some Norwegian music in another section & all sorts of other pieces.... still looking! 

 

 

...even though the site is in Swedish, I'm having a growing urge to try & contact him - just to let him know how grateful I am for this!

Holy Cow!  Should be called the Nordic "The Session"

Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.

WOO HOO!

Found another fabulous site for Scandinavian Dance Music

Folkets Hus Spillefolk - in English!

 

This collection consists of 3044 pieces music notation and 51 dance descriptions of mostly Danish dance and fiddle music.

Enhanced musical learning of recorded music
The music sheets allows for hearing the melodies, and some also have recorded music where you may slow down the playback speed without changing pitch, and set A/B points for learning of the melody small pieces at the time thus using to the “workshop method”. 

 

You can search by type of Dance tune & and geographical area!  

You'll find Repertoire lists & other lists, including Composers! 

There are also some harmony parts and links to YouTube videos! 

...I'm sure there's something here for everyone to learn to play!  🤗
