Dancing with the Angels — Can you put this out in the key of F? I can find chords and lyrics but no notes…….December 6, 2016 at 12:30 AM #43902
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.December 6, 2016 at 12:59 PM #43906
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 awesomeDecember 6, 2016 at 1:02 PM #43907
SORRY……WRONG SONG! REALIZED WHEN SAW YOUR VIDEO. I meant to say WALTZ OF THE ANGELS…
somewhat slower song….dont ya think? hahaDecember 6, 2016 at 1:13 PM #43908
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?June 21, 2017 at 12:43 AM #50427

Really appreciate you posting that Steve..I like your style.June 21, 2017 at 11:28 PM #50434
I really miss hearing this type of music. Steve, thanks for posting. You have a great voice.June 22, 2017 at 9:14 AM #50436
Thanks for posting Steve. I love your version, you sound great!June 22, 2017 at 9:21 AM #50437
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?????June 22, 2017 at 9:24 AM #50438
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 doJune 22, 2017 at 2:06 PM #50440
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
It’s surely from heaven this music I hear
. A E A
When your lips say I love you in waltz time my dear
. D A
There must be a power much higher than I
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

Steve, thanks for posting the chords and lyrics. It’s a beautiful tune!June 22, 2017 at 6:01 PM #50453
thanks!!!June 22, 2017 at 6:56 PM #50457
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 placeJune 22, 2017 at 7:22 PM #50459
Steve, I was able to kind of line it up by putting a period at the beginning of each chord line. Thanks again!September 18, 2018 at 3:35 PM #65231
still searching for melody notes….September 19, 2018 at 2:55 PM #65279
Here is a link to a version in the key of GSeptember 19, 2018 at 3:04 PM #65280
well…I got all excited there for a minute…Dancing with the Angels by NGR is one of my favorite songs.September 19, 2018 at 8:39 PM #65297
Mine too, Dave!
Thanks, fiddlinhiker, for the link.September 21, 2018 at 12:08 PM #65344
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?September 21, 2018 at 8:10 PM #65351
yes! It was I ? . . . (thanks to Elliott’s information.) I am happy to hear that you are enjoying your viola. ?September 22, 2018 at 2:51 PM #65361
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.September 23, 2018 at 7:05 PM #65371
Thank you for the melody notes !!!!!October 17, 2018 at 11:48 AM #65938
Been listening on YouTube to a young man, Owen Mac, singing Waltz of The Angels. Little Bride and I used up about 1/2 box of Kleenex watching him perform. Moved this song to the top of my “Must learn” list. Switch back and forth between fiddle and viola and it’s lovely on both (even by me)! A bit of tape to help me locate second finger on the viola is valuable. Bruce Osborne has the easiest version for me to follow.October 28, 2018 at 2:24 PM #66086
Am waking up with this tune on my minding and even even humming it. Most of the angels that I’ve ever heard about were addressed as “He” or “Him. Anyhow, still love this piece and scrape it out several times a day.
