    Ashokan Farewell
    A beautiful new classic! Jay Ungar is such a gifted tune writer.

    Thanks John. I’ve been hoping you would do this one. I worked up the courage to play Lover’s Waltz last night at band practice for the first time, and it went pretty well. I think I’m making some progress on achieving better right and left hand form, but it’s slow. I’ll try to upload another video soon, so you can keep me pointed in the right direction. Thanks again, and a Blessed Easter to all!

    Hi John!

    By any chance, have you transcribed the notes for the second part, with “ornaments”?

    Cheers, and thanks again for this GREAT website!

    I haven’t done that! I really need to though. And, I should also transcribe a harmony part. I am going to start doing that, especially with my gospel tunes.

    I’m afraid that to stay on those lovely high notes, without sounding like I’ve stepped on my cat, I would need to have one of those handy dandy fingerboard markers…where might that be acquired John?

    Hi Peggy, you are referring to the handy-dandy “Don’t Fret” sticker, created by Phil Coonce, who is also a member here at BluegrassDaddy.com! Here is the link to the Amazon page where you can purchase one.

    John, triplets why didn’t you tell us? No truly that was beautiful! 🙂 I don’t know how I missed this one. I’m going to learn this one for sure! 🙂

    John,  At first I missed seeing the harmony part 1 & 2. Got it now.. It just ends too quick..I’d like to get some variations to work in for repeats also..maybe you could write some?? (Pretty Please) It hardly gets any better than that for sheer beauty!

    I’m glad you found them! So far the only variation I have beyond the beginner version is the version with ornamentation (the way Ungar plays it).
