Hello everyone.

I'm from England, U.K, and have been a fan of tex-mex music for many years.  Originally a drummer (although haven't played for many years), and a little guitar and piano, I decided to teach myself the tex-mex accordion after purchasing a nearly new Hohner Panther - original model (quite rare in U.K, as they are not sold here).  Most accordions in the U.K. seem to be the 2-row Hohner Erica's used for English, Scottish and Irish folk music (not forgetting Morris Dancing) - not really my thing.  I have managed to play a number of tunes thanks to the tabs on this site, and have also tabbed tunes myself (Like La Nopalera - thanks to "happyboxtop" on youtube for an excellent tutorial - I will post this tab as soon as I've typed it up).

Anyway, I have been watching a few Austrian/German satellite TV music channels we can get over here (Melodie Express / Folx TV) and found a big connection between their polka's and tex-mex polka's, and found a great polka on youtube from Oktoberfest 2013 by an Austrian band called "Da Zillertaler und Die Geigerin" and decided to create a tab of it, so I could play it.

Boarisch G'spielt by Da Zillertaler und Die Geigerin

I have tabbed it for a G/C/F accordion, but if played on an F/Bb/Eb accordion it will be the same notes as played in the song.  (I used a program called "Melodeon" for Android phone/tablet, available free from the Play Store - where you can choose any key - excellent app - can use this while listening/watching to tab a song in any key).

Originally played on a 4-row Styrian Accordion (Steirische Harmonika) as used in Austrian Folk Music.

Here is the video of the polka - great to watch - especially the dancing - it is the song at the beginning:
