    Heard this tune while traveling in Winnipeg awhile back and I’m haunted by it and want to learn it.  Been trying to follow it but having some difficulty.  Cajun sound but with some additional instruments like cajun accordion that make it very hummable, whistleable and unforgettable.  To me, anyhow.

    Thanks  Steve,

    Found this site yesterday and have been attempting to follow it and play by ear.   Srta works but lotsa new and not so pretty notes are slipping in so the written you sent will be a marvelous help.

    Beautiful song! Anyone know how to pronounce the the title?

    Has anyone else noticed that when the melody lingers on the second note of the chord triad, it gives the song a “haunting” feel? I think this is a real psychological effect.

    French speakers are becoming scarce even though quite a lot of local settlers here in north central Minnesota were Canadian French.  I’ve been trying to get someone to properly identify this beautiful piece…without much success.      I certainly have been “haunted” by the melody and am currently hanging out with other amateurs to squeeze out the tune, by ear,  with the decorations and all.  GREAT FUN!!!!!!

    “Sayshells” (Ches Seychelles)  seems to be close to the name.   Been working on playing it by ear but miss those little blue balls bouncing around on the tabs.

    What I found is that it’s a Hetalia waltz in the key of F,  from the Seychelles Islands.

    Hi Steve:  How do I get to the “chords” page on the Sessions sheet music for the Chez Seychelles tune in F Major?  🙃

    Nancy, (in thesession.org site) if you click on the sheet music tab, the sheet music pops up, and if you click on the download tab, you get a file for the Midi mp3.  All four variations are there…2 in F major, one in D, and one in G.  They are his best attempt to dicipher it though, not an official record of the music. I printed off all four and downloaded the midi’s as well, to see which version I liked best.  I’m pretty sure though once you change keys it’s going to lose it’s flavor.
