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.

    First video coming up as not available, Marcy. Luurtie, lovely arrangement of a beautiful tune.
  4. Marcelyn
    That's strange. I just tried it and it's working fine here.
    Thanks for the chords Hendrik.

    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.
  9. Tavy
    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.

    Great versions of this Mark Schatz original. Thanks for the sheet music, David!
    I guess I recorded the backup track a little too fast, that's why I used less tremolo than I usually do.
  17. Frithjof
    Criss, I like the warm tone of your mandolin. Your recording sounds great.

    I like the speed too, Criss.

    Many thanks David and Hendrik (and Mark), I’ve combined your chords and the abc. And there’s a PDF.

    Lovely composition and really well played here, Christian.
  25. Frithjof
    This is such a lovely Waltz. I liked it from the beginning. This feeling grew with every of the nice versions above. But I couldn’t watch the original video Macelyn provided. Only a few weeks ago I tried a search in YouTube – and surprise: I can watch it in Europe. And how beautiful Mark recorded his composition!

    Like Martin I had no idea what the title refers to … until I checked the website of the composer were he described it with the following words:

    From time to time I set out to write a tune for a particular occasion. This was the case with the Samolynn Waltz (recorded on Brand New Old Tyme Way), which I wrote for the wedding of Sam and Lynn Bush, good friends of mine who live in Nashville.

    Thanks again for sharing ABC and chords - Hendrik, David and atsunrise.

    (another one well played Frithjof well done, you guys are so productive!)

    Here’s the here-friendly version of the original!

  27. crisscross
    Thanks John and very nice version Frithjof!
  28. Frithjof
    Thanks atsunrise and Christian!

    Yes, really nice with the guitar, Christian, well done.
    -and what’s the seriously nice mandolin at 0:26? A Sobell?
    I want one like that!

    Fine version, Frithjof. It is very evocative tune.
  31. Frithjof
    Thanks, John.

    Very nice Frithjof. I seem to think this wants to be called the Salmonella Waltz, but I'm sure that's waltz blasphemy. I like the rhythm you have going on here.
  33. Frithjof
    Thanks Ginny.
    Oh yes, that would be very bad waltz blasphemy.

    I like songs with funny names...can you imagine what I re-named the Kerfunken Jig? - yes, yes you can !
    Happy Thanksgiving to those that have it this weekend.

    I can...you would sure have to be careful introducing that tune if you were performing it somewhere...
