    Thanks Barbara!
    There seem to be two settings of this waltz.
    Here's a link to the first setting with standard notation, mandolin tablature and chord symbols:
    And here's a link to the second setting:
    The chord progression and the melody differ slightly.
    The Teardrop Waltz has been the front-runner for the last week, so I already recorded my version.
    It's a slightly simplified variant of the first setting:

    Sorry Christian no time to comment your recording.
    Im very busy. I have to learn three waltzes from the last three threads submitted within two days

    I can't keep up with CC. I want to play them all, but like Frithjof I cannot do them all. But it sure is nice listening to them.

    Do people still post their versions of these tunes? I've been AWOL from the group for bit. Threw in some double stops and tremolos to compensate on having a pick instead of a bow in my right hand. And don't try to set your metronome to my "counting" all the dotted quarter notes!

    Sounds fine, I like the slides!
    Your mandolin sounds great!
  10. Frithjof
    Thanks for your nice version, Mike. You made good use of our tiny (pick-)bow.

    Nicely done crisscross. The quality of your recordings is always so clear and well balanced.

    That nice recording wasn't made by me, but by Leo37. He had posted it in the poll-section of the main forum, and I transferred it to this thread.
    But I guess, meanwhile Leo37 knows where to post the SAW.tunes...
  14. Frithjof
    Nice version by Leo. I like how mandolin and guitar play it together in the least part..
  15. Leo37
    Thanks Robert and Frithjof and special thanks for Christian for placing the link at the right place.

    It is the first time that I participate in this projekt. It is an interesting task that gave me a lot of pleasure.

    I meant to record this lovely waltz earlier, but have only just got around.

    This is an old-time waltz tune by the Canadian fiddler Reg Bouvette, which I have recorded on an old Gibson mandolin with tenor guitar backing. I have used Anne Lederman's transcription from:


    1921 Gibson Ajr mandolin
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar

    Leo - do you have a You Tube page? I'd like to find it if you let me know what it's called. Thanks
    Martin, your version is very nice and nicely balanced with the tenor. As a Canadian I did not know we actually waltzed. Usually we only write songs about freezing feet. Maybe waltzing kept us warm.
  18. crisscross
    Fine mandolin/tenor guitar duet Martin, I really enjoyed it!
  19. Frithjof
    Very nice, Martin.
  20. Leo37
    Ginny, I would be happy to have. Unfortunately I am have no experience with video editors to realize what I would like to do. Mixing different camera views. Maybe next year. Thanks for asking.

    This is nice Casey, very flowing. I subscribed to your channel but see it's been a while since you've posted. Will you do more? Sounds good.
  24. Tommcgtx
    Ginny, I hope you don't think that was me! I'm not that skilled, but I love the way he plays this.
