Hi,
You might try here: http--ingeb.org-volksoni.html

Unfortunately, he doesn't have the sheet music for everything, only the tunes that have 'Noten' after their titles.

Hope this helps.

Probaly Ennstaler Polka, if you mean simple tune everyone learns first.
Try http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqePGFt5q54

BTW another good source of tunes mostly from that region: http://www.volksmusik.cc/
In German, and not terrible easy to navigate. I keep these links handy:
A-F
G-M
N-S
T-Z

You need a Steiriche Harmonika for the proper effect.
A Club box gets you halway there with the Gleichton, but it doesn't have the helikon basses.

Dirndl optional (behave yourself, Chris! *)

The Bavarian equivalent to "Steed the Plough" is almost certainly "Unser alte Kath" also known as the Boxhamerische Zweifache

Fantastic! I have known this tune for years (it does occasionally get played in English sessions) and never knew what it was. I've met the Zweifacher rhythm pattern too, but never made the connection.

Thank you for that  ;D  :Ph

ditto again. I know that Boxhamerische Speed the Zweifacher tune well enough by ear to join in, but had never mentally or physically joined it to the dance I'd once learned. A classic!

Actually it is "Zwiefacher", not "Zweifacher"
