When I posted this video it kept going to “Lovers Waltz” I couldn’t delete the post. I think this video is easier to hear without the band. I agree this would make a great lesson.
I knew why you posted your comment, just couldn’t get the computer to comply with my wishes.
Thanks for posting and covering my mistake. There is nobody better than Michael on this waltz.

If anyone ever finds a source of sheet music for this…will you please post the source!May 22, 2019 at 4:30 AM #72280May 22, 2019 at 6:30 AM #72282cricketParticipant
Have you seen the lesson here for Golden Fiddle Waltz? This sounds similar…of course if this is in D, I’m sure it must be easier to learn than Golden Fiddle Waltz, in F. I went through that lesson and actually learned to play the whole thing in a terrible, shaky, out-of-tune fumbly way, but life got really out-of-control right after that…my BGD year subscription ran out, and I just dropped off the face of the earth for a while and forgot all that I struggled to get. Can’t play it now and haven’t had the quiet time with concentration I’d need to get it all back again, but anyway, what I’m saying is it has a very similar sound…beautiful waltz, good and thorough lesson on here for that…but it ain’t easy at all. I wanna get back to it when we get done working in TN all the time, and when everybody doesn’t need us for a few months…yes, it would take a few months to get it down…and I don’t know how long to actually be able to play it smoothly and in tune…but it is beautiful. Anyway, in case you might wanna have a look.May 22, 2019 at 11:06 AM #72305
Cricket , Golden fiddle Waltz is pretty , But no one I know could play guitar rhythm to it , So I would never be able to play it without the Rhythm tracks !May 22, 2019 at 3:51 PM #72330
Thanks Dave, so it’s really an oldie. & in Bb.
Here’s another recording that is good quality, & he does a little different as usual……
I desperately hope someone gets this guy into the best possible recording studio to make the best possible recordings for posterity while Michael is at his peak. He is hearing music in his head that the rest of us are incapable of hearing. These amateur recordings are amazing, but it would take a quality studio to do the real deal.May 22, 2019 at 4:36 PM #72331
I watched a interview on u-tube , The interviewer asked if he practiced a lot when he was not on the road and Michael said no I have to force myself , once I am home , I just really don’t wont to so I don’t unless I force myself !May 22, 2019 at 7:38 PM #72332cricketParticipant
He’s obviously an alien…humans don;t play like that.May 22, 2019 at 11:17 PM #72342goettjpParticipant

Dave, I looked at the archive, & it is a different Blue Violet Waltz.May 24, 2019 at 8:46 AM #72380ruckydooParticipant
I’ve listened to Michael Cleveland’s version many,many times when I felt a need to cheer up. Beautiful!November 21, 2019 at 11:52 PM #79273John (BGD)Keymaster
Great tune! Steve, I’ll have the lesson up by the weekend. Thanks again!November 22, 2019 at 10:16 AM #79291
Great , I am looking forward to it ! Your version sounds great except I couldn’t hear where you made your violin sound like a mandolin like in the Michael recording !November 22, 2019 at 10:45 AM #79294ruckydooParticipant
Have been listening to Michael Cleveland for months now while making attempts to get that song to sound right. Having a BGD lesson will be an enormous help.November 22, 2019 at 11:16 AM #79299
Great job playing this tune. Am looking forward to the lesson as are others.
