    Also Star of the County Down is often played in 3/4. Beautiful tune. Howard Levy did a lyrical harmonica version on one of the Flectone albums, Cosmic Hippo I think.

    Even more fun, play your 3/4 waltz in 4/4. Tastefully now...

    Or set a good old 4/4 camp meeting melody in 3/4.

    I set the hymn There Is A Fountain Filled With Blood in 3/4, there is something so primal about tremoloing the double-stopped half notes in that chorus!

    Howard Levy, the best harmonica player I have seen. He can play Amazing Grace on both ends of the harp at the same time. It's to bad he doesn't play bluegras

    I have arranged a medley of "state waltzes": Tennessee Waltz in F, Missouri Waltz in D, Kentucky Waltz in Eb. I'd like to add something in G to cover all three standard modulations, possibly Carolina Moon, or Miss the Mississippi and You.

    Nordic music has a ton of them.
    Livet i Finnskogarna is mostly done on the accordion; it's credited to Carl Jularbo, but probably traditional. Wonder whether Vaughn Horton knew the original or whether the similarity with Mocking Bird Hill is just coincidence.

    Kärleksvals(en) -- there are several songs with that title; are you referring to Ulrik Neumann's song? Often done on Neumann's instrument, the guitar:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZA2bQiejXRQ

    The song was featured in a Swedish movie, Vaxdockan (Wax Doll), whence (I suppose) the Swedish title.

    A vocal version featuring Neumann's daughter Ulla (in both her languages), and son Mikael:

    The Ballo Liscio folders that are on dropbox are full of great waltzes.
