    This week's winner is Nancy's Waltz. This tune has already appeared within this forum, as an "other tune"!

    Here is a link to abc from John Chambers.

    Here's a link to standard notation.

    Here is the link to this tune here in the social group, when it was an "other tune"

    and, the great video that accompanies that discussion!

    This is a lovely tune, and Hendrik's recording is great. I've found a slightly different transcription, based on Natalie MacMaster's recording on Rounder:

    I'm not sure where the composer (who seems to be spelled variously "Chris Romain" or "Romaine") is from, but the tune seems to be associated with Cape Breton.

    I've recorded it as a duet of mandolin and tenor guitar.

    Mid-Missouri M-0W mandolin
    Ozark tenor guitar

    Great version Martin- well played. I took the opportunity to practice some tremolo.

    Fine versions, all three. Interesting to compare them to hear what you each bring to your versions.

    Hendrik's first posting of this tune got me interested in it so I posted a version of it back then too. The video below is essentially the same except that I added fiddle to the mix. I'm feeling a bit more confident in my fiddle intonation although confidence and proficiency don't necessarily correlate in a positive manner...

    Martin - a nice version as always. You are also super at sleuthing out various scores on the internet!

    Maudlin - you are getting your tremolo down!

    You guys all play these melodies with such ease and fluidity. I am jealous! I really like this waltz #. I gave it a shot.

    Wow... playing with all those double-stops. That's how a mandolin is supposed to be played. That was excellent Timothy!
