Theme of the Month: Waltzes
« on: August 01, 2012, 12:40:53 AM »

Here we are folks, a nice simple theme for the holiday season; lets have lots of waltzes please! Any waltz, and as ever, rule-bending interpretations of the theme are encouraged! One thing though; there will very likely be an 'irregular waltz/tune' theme soon, so those of you with 5 time, 8 time, etc waltzes up your sleeves may want to save them for that!

Bon chance,

Clive

One I did earlier as some will remember.

That will have to do until I get back from Sidmouth, and I have a plan for then...

Whilst on the subject of "one I did earlier" here is Bonsoir Bebe, written by some bloke called Rees Wesson.

Just for a laugh, here's a short video of me waltzing about on a Hohner Erica belonging to some bloke called Lester.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-20oADoHOI

The tune is called Nom de Plume (Valse Identité) which I wrote circa 1980. You only get the closing bars here but I'll post the full tune dreckly.
Alternatively, you could buy "Nice and Lovely" my CD of  waltzes.

Once it finishes processing, in a few minutes we should have a couple of waltzes I've just recorded on the Castagnari Giasco in D/G

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5MJGO9ZWJY - Thirty Two / Two Rivers

Both recent(ish) compositions by the great Larry Unger - see www.larryunger.net, and taken off his splendid 'Waltz Time' and 'Waltz Time II' albums, which are composed *entirely* of waltzes. They're fantastic albums (both on Spotify by the way) and his version of Two Rivers in particular is just gorgeous. These albums were on my car stereo more or less non-stop when driving to/from the hospital to visit Liz when Scott was born, so have a special place in my memories so to speak. (John's 'birthday soundtrack' album was Bellowhead's first album, by the way).

You'll find ABC for Two Rivers on Larry's site; if trying to read the tunes from my playing, remember that my basses are not conventionally set up, but are unisonoric on the Giasco - all of them - but, once you figure out what a bass is, it's a lot easier to follow than normal since you don't have to bother about bellows direction. I'm sure Thirty Two would fit on a standard 8 bass instrument easily enough - probably Two Rivers would as well, but there's a lot of use of the B chord, and I'm not terribly used to going to the inside row on the push for that all the time, so it was easier for me to pick it up on the unisonoric basses.

Enjoy,

Clive

Here are two standards Valse Belle Bergé and Sur La Bord de La Riviere.

And here's one I wrote for a student to work out his basses.  The A section uses every bass on a typical two-row diato. It's called L'autre Diatonist.

Another "one I did earlier". Through the Wood Laddie, I first came across the tune in an 1805 militia tune book from Derbyshire but later found it in other collections of tunes from other parts of England.

I'm gong to be away for some time in August. I'll see if there's time to do something fresh later in the month.

Not sure this really counts as it sounds more  like a waltz on the third time through. Either way I think it's a wonderful tune written by Brian Peters.

Hoping to record Wals voor Polle soonish.

Already really enjoying this theme and the posts so far.

Cheers,

Sandy (:)

Hello everyone,
Here is a waltz I recorded earlier this year. It's a cover from the Belgian folkrock group Urban Trad.
Dranouter is a village in the province of West-Vlaanderen with a well known folkfestival although nowadays it's has become a more mainstream popfestival.

Here is the link :

I will get round to recording a video, just been a little distracted by a sewing project (regency dress.)
Anyone suggest any regency waltzes I could learn to play?

Not me playing but I've just found this on YouTube.
From a previous TOTM - The Lemonville Jig played as a waltz. Lovely  (:)

Two nice simple French valses: "La fille du fermier" and "Valse du vielleux d'Anost". The first one came from a very cheap CD on ebay "L'ame de l'Auvergne" which is a collection of 1920s and 30s tunes played by Martin Cayla, Antoine Bouscatel etc and in this case Jean Segurel. A great buy for fans of old style French stuff. On the AMTA label.
