The Tune of the Month for May at Melodeon.net is the Tip Top Polka. So I decided to learn the tune and see what folk-rnn v2 would generate when primed with its first four bars (but transposed to minor to contrast with the happy polka). After many trials (folk-rnn v2 doesn’t seem to like duple meter), I finally got something that was worth learning (using “thesession_with_repeats”, seed 687677, temperature 1, and prime tokens M:2/4 K:Cmin c /2 d /2 |: e e e f | c c c A /2 B /2 | c c c e | B 3):

Here I play it together with the Tip Top Polka on the Mean Green Machine Folk Machine.
