    I love both versions, but the Frankie Rodgers original is my favorite.

    I love this tune so much! I can’t wait to smooth out my playing it with this lesson! I like the Tolkien shirt, Mr. Cockman. I bought my Dad one with the white tree of Gondor for Father’s day 🙂

    Ha it’s cool that you noticed the shirt. You should wear yours in your next video!

    Janet, I hope to hear you play it some day. Are you learning the western version, or the Frankie Rodgers version?

    I wondered about the shirt…everybody I’ve ever known in my whole life read Tolken…I tried several times but never could get interested in it.  That or Star Wars…can’t get interested in that either but everybody has characters from Star Wars on T shirts.  Gosh I gotta join in some day!

    John, I prefer the western version, maybe because that’s the first one I heard.  Waltzes are may favorites too so far. I have trouble with fast tunes so I do like the slower ones for that reason too I guess

    The western version is much more well known. However, when I heard the original by Frankie Rodgers, I immediately fell in love!

    The western version really gets my attention and am printing out the tabs for practice.   I’m finding  that the waltzes are really getting to the top of my favorites to play.  Much appreciate having  so many to draw from and to   learn in your archives.

    I’m loving waltzes more and more. I used to love the fast songs, but the more I play the more I appreciate the slower tunes. 🙂
