This popular jamming and contra dance piece is also called the “Blue Bell Polka.” It is actually what’s called a “cotillion.” Usually with cotillions, the parts are played in A-B-A sequence. “Flop Eared Mule” is also fun because it changes key. The A part is in the key of G, and the B part is in the Key of D – both easy keys to play on the hammered dulcimer.
