I have always loved this tune, although it's provenance is still a bit fuzzy to me. The tune is actually from a song attributed to Dick Gaughan, "Both Sides of the Tweed", and he is credited with the tune, but the words are perhaps from another party. At any rate, the French Diato folks seem to love playing this as a waltz, because it works quite well this way. So I am presenting the tune in the French fashion, which they call "Valse Ecossaise", played on my newly valved, waxed, & tuned Pistelli.

I like your playing.
This is the way it is danced in France, I'm not sure they dance it this way in Scotland ?

What could be more therapeutic, on a sweltering August day in Philadelphia, than a refreshingly chilly tune from Québec, Danielle Martineau's "Valse d'hiver"?

I also recorded a concertina version--a bit more conventionally--last winter:

OK folks. First ever recording which should maybe in Beginner Showcase but hey, it is a waltz so here it is.  :||:

Not sure you could dance to it and I haven't managed to do any basses mainly because I don't hold a constant rhythm all the way through but I am getting closer!

There's something quite beautiful about that - I listened to it twice over, well done!

Nice feel to the take, but some extra beats to be adjusted, in particular at the start of the B-section...

One of my favourites, just working on the melodeon version... (rather played as a mazurka however).

Listening to Tony Hall's terrific version highly recommended - if only for pleasure!

Dear God, thank you for helping me get, and play the melodeon, and harmonica. I am extremely grateful for these gifts! Amen.

Here's a tune I composed recently. It is called the Forest Path Waltz. Enjoy!  ;D

Well made and done Happy! Sounds like a barrel organ right from the movies, sort of Vienna, The Third Man style... (:)

Dipping lazily into my old recordings (due to lack of playing) here are a couple of warts an' all waltzes:

Very nice song dude! Congratulations! Simple but enchanting... and remaining in the ears easily, because repetitive. Very nice work.

(about that interest of you in write your songs... this track is an example of a song that has an easy writing ... not complex).

Love that tune, Bob, you play it wonderfully. Since I have a similar Weltmeister, I must give it a go. Elsey's waltz is really nice too. Thanks for presenting it!

I missed this one first time around. Great job Pete! Another one to add to my ever-lengthening list of must-learns.

Great job, Happy! It seems like you got a wonderful instrument, and are making the best of it. Keep on, my friend!

I recorded this some years ago, and it was time for an update. A new recording of one of the first tunes I learned, on my first good box:  Maguire and Paterson's written by Robbie Overson

I don't think I've ever heard this. What a gorgeous tune, and very nicely rendered.

Duly bookmarked and added to my to-do list.

Yes, and these sweet Hohner sounds...  (:)

http://accordeonaire.blogspot.com/2015/08/two-waltzes-from-le-bon-truc.html

Here are two waltzes by my trio, Le Bon Truc. I think this is the first time I've posted something from the trio.

The first waltz is "Saturday Night in St. Andrews," written by our dulcimerist (dulcimerian?), Barbara Truex. The second is "Dill Waters Run Steep," a fast waltz that I wrote fifteen years ago, and still find really fun to play.

Enjoy!
