    Wow! I was going through some different videos of Mike playing this and found out form his introduction that my old band-mate Charlie Flannery wrote it.

    Charlie and I played about a year together for Wendy Smith (wrote Caroline the Teenage Queen and over 300 other songs).

    What a gorgeous waltz!    The double stops trip me up but will keep trying.   Thanks for teaching Mike  Cleveland’s version.

    It sure is a fine waltz, ruckydoo. I love playing it and I have most of my friends at the local jam sessions playing it, too.

    Very interesting to learn who composed the tune and that our own Dave from the forum here knows the guy very well and performed with him. Now that’s really cool as Peggy has said.

    I would like to learn quickly, I don’t know how to do that, I’m trying to play Amazine Graces and it doesn’t fit in my head, is there something I don’t know because I’m about to get discouraged. to pay before for short and nobody wrote to me is not to say that the French people would say that of the help they do not know that, if there is something to let me know.
    Thanks Gigi

    Hello Gigi,   Please be patient with yourself as the fiddle does have some songs that require MUCH  practice.  I am now over 80 years old and still consider myself a beginner but am attempting to master the Blue Violet Waltz but can only seem to do it one string at at a time but have slipped in a few double stops and am very happy to hear the song sound better.   Age has slowed me down but I want to be a fiddle player  for as long as I can.    You will soon find yourself producing beautiful songs and the thrill of that makes it all worth will.    It was only when  I increased my practice to an hour a day that I felt positive results so that worked for me.  Stick with it, Gigi.   Your violin has thousands of gorgeous songs trapped in it for you to discover and play.  Your determination is  a sign of your desire to do well.  I will pray for you too.      Ruckydoo (Ralph)
