    This week's winner is Josephine's Waltz. I see now, that this is also called Josefin's Waltz, which has had a run here, years ago, as an Other Tune. It is also known as Johsefin’s, Johsefin’s Dopvals, Johsefins Dopvals, Josefin’s Baptism, Josefin’s Dopvals, Josefin’s Vals, Josefin’s Waltze, Josephine’s, Josephine’s Christening, Joshefin’s. Here is the link to the other discussion.

    Here is a link to six settings of this tune on thesession.org.
    Be sure to read through the comments, as there is quite a bit of discussion is to the correctness of the various abc's!

    I linked this discussion to the older one, but please, if you are going to submit your video, do it to this one, not the old one!

    Ok, I read through the various discussions, and watched the video (below) which was linked in one of the comments as being the composer, Roger Tallroth, playing with Vassen, to come up with the intended structure of the tune, and feel that this is the correct abc (in the key of G, which is transposed from the key of F, apparently)

    It's time for an updated video. Here is Josefin's Dopvals in the original key of F with the mandolin part from my 2009 video, the guitar part from the 2011 video with all new concertina, bass & organ and new video for the 1st and 2nd go rounds and pictures of Sweden for the 3rd.

    You know what I don't like about you, David? You take ANY tune regardless of its inherent interest and turn it into something that I definitely want to learn but can never achieve.

    Seriously: Great playing and arrangement, as usual. You seem to bring out the soul of the tune.
