    Dancing with the Angels — Can you put this out in the key of F?  I can find chords and lyrics but no notes…….

    Do you have a favorite version? Maybe a youtube link? Here is a cool Stuart Duncan break in the key of A with New Grass Revival in 1988. The break starts around 2:14. I wouldn’t be hard to tab a simple melody version in F.

    I can try…usually when I do that it never sounds like what others are playing! I do know my friends play it in F.maybe you can just note out that fiddle part? I will too and compare . My friends say best way to learn is just listen to the music. I try but although I can heat it in my head clearly ,it doesn’t sound good when I put fingers to string. I need to SEE the note or tabs to learn
    any suggestions how to learn by ear would be awesome

    Ha yes, that’s quite a difference. 🙂  I have changed the title of this post.

    Here is our friend Bruce Osborne playing the song. Is this the right one?

    Or were you thinking of Angel’s Waltz, as in the Bobby Hicks video below?

    thanks Steve…..I am gonna use your version cause it is a great tempo.  The problem still is that I cannot find the melody notes still anywhere.  Research only gives the words and chords.  And I am terrible at trying to play be ear. I realize it is my biggest enemy.  I can hear it in my head but well, when I put those fingers on the strings it just dont sound good. But I am determined. Any suggestions helpful by anyone. What key are you in?????

    I always thought it was good to be able to read music……but now into blueIgrass I find it a detriment.  Especially at a jam….I never take music papers to the jam, and sometimes find it difficult.  I can play in the key they say, but thats about it.  Afraid to really step out and move those fingers around easily to the melody that many fiddlers do

    Nancy playing in the key of (A) Simple chords A-D-E  in that order

    Nancy the chords wont stay where they are supposed to be every time

    I move the cords into place when I save the program auto moves them out of position. For example on the second line E cord is supposed to be over tightly and A is supposed to be over Mine so the cords are on the right line but not over the right words. LOL Auto correct Grrrrrr.

    Waltz Of The Angels (1956)
    .                          A                             D
    The waltz of the angels I hear each night
    .                E                                     A
    I hold you tightly in these arms of mine
    .                                                           D
    It’s surely from heaven this music I hear
    .                                   A               E                      A
    When your lips say I love you in waltz time my dear

    Chours
    .                          D                                      A
    There must be a power much higher than I
    .                                                          E
    A writer of love songs way up in the sky
    .                      A                                    D
    The maker of roses of love sweet and true
    .                                  A                E                       A
    And the waltz of the angels, the moonlight and you

    Oh hurry my darling to my waiting arms
    I’ll love you forever and keep you from harm
    We know love is endless our hearts have been kissed
    By the waltz of the angels and far beyond this

    You do realize the chords are not over the right words. But the cords are in the right lines . The form would not leave the cords in their rightful place

    Steve, I was able to kind of line it up by putting a period at the beginning of each chord line. Thanks again!

    Haven’t heard Waltz of the Angels in decades and it’s bringing some wonderful thoughts to mind hearing it by Bruce Osborne on viola.   Will be trying that one on for size REAL SOON!  I tuned my viola to fiddle sounds and enjoy it quite a lot.    Wasn’t that suggestion from you, Nancy?

    yes!  It was I 😊 . . . (thanks to Elliott’s information.)  I am happy to hear that you are enjoying your viola.  👍

    Nancy Parker ,   Loving the viola  and try to scrape out a tune on it quite frequently and some even sound fairly decent…occasionally.  Viola is doing her job but the fidder is another story.   Having fun anyhow!  Added dozens of songs to my practice list and some seem well fitted to viola’s deep sounds. Thanks again for the tip that led me to buy it.   As per your tip, (and I dips me lid to Elliot) I strung it like my fiddle and it didn’t require too much retraining either.
