I'm interested in the middle tune (Finnish Polka) here.

As far as I've been able to work it out, it sounds like it's in the key of B. So the IV & V chords would be E and F#/Gb resp. But the chords don't sound right when I put the guitar to the tune.

 It’s in B minor. I can’t help you with the chords though.

1st part B Aolian, (Bm & A Maj), 2nd part (Dmaj & Amaj).

Thanks, guys. That's a help!

Really just the "key" of D Maj

Are we talking about the same tune? The first polka is in D Maj. The second tune? Not so much.

Bm makes sense to me to follow up a tune that was in D. But I don't sense a key change within the tune. I'd say it's all Bm.

The "Finnish polka" is in B minor. Not sure of the chords, especially the B part, but it may go to an A chord.

chords are from the "key" of D major but the tone centre is B. the second part starts on a D Major chord something like this

||: Bm/|Bm/|A/|A/|

Bm/|Bm/|A/|Bm/ :||

||: D/|A/|Bm/|A/|

D/|A/|Bm A|Bm/ :||
