    The Vanagon Waltz is a folky/old-time waltz written by Rachel Rosenberg, which I found by chance when I was trying to find the score for "Stars For Liesbeth" as posted by Robert Balch. This lovely waltz is literally the next tune in the "Carp Camp" tunebook at:

    I had to look up the name to realise "Vanagon" was what Volkswagen called the Transporter T3 in the US market, so that gave me a visual theme.

    Played on an old Gibson mandolin and tenor guitar.

    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar


    PS: I will get around to recording Liesbeth as well!

    Martin, I tried to copy both a pdf and a photo of the tabs and standard notation for Stars for Liesbeth...but this is not allowing mt to..if you have any ideas how to do that, let me know.
    I think, but am not sure that Robert put it in as an a b c..and I asked John Kelly to convert it for me.
    Also, this is a very nice waltz, nicely done.

    Nice waltz, beautifully played, Martin!
    Thanks for the link to the tunebook.
    It has a nice mixture of well known and less well known tunes.

    I found the last video a little lacking in volume, so I made a new mix.
    Hope that has a little more dynamics...
