Five Time Waltz: « Elle » written by Rémi Geffroy
« on: June 05, 2018, 06:30:26 PM »

This is my first effort at playing a 5 time waltz.  It was a challenge for the French forum, Fasiladiato.  I picked Elle by Rémi Geffroy because I heard him playing it at the festival Trad’envie and loved it.  Found it very difficult to learn and still making mistakes with rythme and note length but this is my best effort so far - still a work in progress and likely to be so for a good while!  Here is the link:

Great tune, very nicely played. I love the natural swing of 5.

Hey! That's brilliant, well played  (:) You really have the bass side going well.

I haven't tried that one yet but listening to you, makes me think I must put it on my 'to learn list'. Now that you have done that, keep it going by playing it a few times each week and it will soon become second nature. I would suggest that you try Les Amities, by Stephane Delicq next - an 8 times waltz and also a very beautiful tune. 1,2,3, 1,2,3, 1,2, 1,2,3, 1,2,3, 1,2,......over to you....and keep up the good work!!!

Thanks for your positive and kind comments, it has been quite a challenge.  Will keep at it and I will try an 8 time waltz, have danced to this beat too.

I kind of melted on hearing Remi play this tune for the first time. I think that you played it very well. You may have felt that it wasn't quite going to plan and the fingers weren't gliding over the buttons in front the camera - I know that feeling - but this wasn't noticeable to me. Nice playing and keep recording.

This video by Halil Ibrahim Onay is very good for learning the tune.
