Week #338 Samolynn Waltz

  1. Marcelyn
    This week’s winner is Samolynn Waltz. It’s a beautiful tune by Mark Schatz.
    Here’s a really lovely version

    And here’s a wonderful version from someone we all know.

    Unfortunately, I’m not coming up with tab or notation for this one. Maybe someone here can help us out with that.

    Thanks so much, David!
    If anyone wants to convert the ABC notation to mandolin tab or standard notation, you can do it here…

    Wow David, with that beautiful timing of you and that heavy drone in it, it even sounds more beautiful without tremolo!. I love it! Thanks for sharing..

    luurtie and David, both very beautiful playing, wonderfully expressive. I'm not going to try this one, but I sure enjoy listening to all the different interpretations.

    Very nice playing indeed from two masters there, a really nice tune as well!

    Lovely playing from David and Hendrik! The original Mark Schatz video doesn't seem to be available in the UK, but with the other two recordings and the transcription, I have a fairly good idea of the tune.

    I've recorded it on my Mid-Mo, with tenor guitar arpeggios using Hendrik's chords, which fit fine. Very enjoyable tune!

    No idea what the title refers to, but I've used photos of Lapland, from the similarity of the title to the Sami people.

    Very nice version Martin! I love the bright round tone from the Mid-mo..

    Hendrik - very nicely done. Thanks for bringing this one around and for posting the chords.
    David - Thanks for posting the notation. I am pleased to say that I learned most of it by ear but your notation bailed me out on one spot and got me mostly on track with timing. Wonderful playing too...
    Martin - great rendition. The backing with the tenor guitar arpeggios worked perfectly. I really liked that.

    Here's my go on mandolin, guitar, fiddle, and accordion.

    I almost mist this one Bob.. You did a great job, and I love the backing with the fiddle's. Did you play it all by yourself?
  14. woodenfingers
    Hi Hendrik - Thanks !! Yes, I played all the parts. Fun tune!

    Thanks to David for the abc and to Marcelyn for the Mandolintab site wich is much better than Concertinanet as it will give you tab as well as notation and transpose to any key. Just for fun I got it to transpose to Emaj and here it is. Great job by Hendrick, David, Martin and Woodenfingers.
