I created a bunch of ornamention exercises for traditional ornaments in mainly Balkan folk music. Releasing them for free because I consider myself a Balkan traditional folk ambassador.
Fingerings are for piano accordion, but the exercises can be played on any instrument, basically.


Advanced Ornamentation Exercises pt. 2

In Bulgarian and Macedonian music, the pulse of the triplet is often felt in the ornamentation (as well as in the melody). Here are some characteristic ornaments that are common.

In the melody, single ornamental grace notes are often added before the main melody note, especially in Bulgarian music. This gives a special grandeur to the melody and a distinctive sound. The A minor scale is provided in this way, with correct fingering.
