That’s cool! I gotta learn it. Those two guys in the video are really good fiddlers…lol. I think I know one of them….the other could be an imposter…lol.
Great fiddling, John…I can’t wait to look at the lesson! Thanks, Steve!November 14, 2018 at 8:55 AM #66525
Thanks John , well worth the wait ! Two questions ? How much would I have to speed up the slow play throughs to get them up to speed to practice the harmony and melody individual at full speed as I play along , as you know there is a faster and a faster fine , how much to get 100 bpm ? Question 2 Playing a live performance , using the performance video I would just be able to play along playing either the melody and or harmony live , so the melody would be the dominant am I right ?November 14, 2018 at 9:15 AM #66528
This is fantastic, John! And thanks, Steve, for sponsoring this lesson!November 15, 2018 at 12:23 AM #66540
John, on the notes tabs for melody & harmony, on the printed pages they both say ‘melody’. They are very similar, but not entirely, so I don’t know if it’s two versions of the melody instead of harmony, or if the the one is a misprint and should say harmony. If so, it seems like the harmony is often playing in sync with the melody. The second one has a repeat for the first 17 measures, whereas the first doesn’t, but they both end on measure 89, which means the first would end 17 measures before the second one. I’m probably missing something…?November 15, 2018 at 12:45 AM #66541
Rodger there is two pages of Melody , And two pages of harmony , But Rodger your right on the sheet music notation there’s no harmony sheet just melody . the tabs are ok and both notes and tabs are ok , but no notes for harmony !

Thanks Rodger, it should be fixed now!
Steve, the metronome is at 60 bpm, so that might be a good place to start. Would you like a performance track that is melody-only, or maybe harmony-only?
Thanks everyone!November 15, 2018 at 2:20 AM #66560
John all is well I can already almost keep up with the performance track with fiddle ! That’s what I wont for playing it live all the bells and whistles ! haNovember 15, 2018 at 2:28 AM #66563
I can’t wait to hear it!November 15, 2018 at 2:35 AM #66564
Actually John a full speed performance track with fiddle with just the melody would be helpful to perfect the melody it is a little confusing playing along with both before I get the melody right .November 16, 2018 at 9:07 PM #66648
Done!November 20, 2018 at 8:41 PM #66744
Thanks John I am on it like a hungry Dog on a bone ! GrrrrrAugust 15, 2019 at 7:03 AM #75494
I don’t think I ever heard this before. (Where have I been? :0) What a beautiful waltz. One of those ones where you can just close your eyes and dream. I’ll have to put it on my short list to learn. Thank you, John.
