FIRST LOVE POLKA. American, Polka. B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Attributed to "Downing" by Howe, who may be referring to New York bandleader David L. Downing, a prominent Civil War era arranger of such pieces as "Dixie's Land Medley Quick Step" (1861) and the "Kazoodie Ko Whirl Overture" (1852).
