    Default Blue River Waltz sheet music

    I wasn't sure where to put this, so it ended up here. Does anyone have the standard notation for the Blue River Waltz? I heard it played by Jay Ungar and Molly, I don't remember her last name. It's a beautiful waltz and I've looked all over for it. I would be most grateful for any help. Thanks

    Molly Mason. You can download the sheet music on their web site for a reasonable $2.

    Jim - do you know if it is mandolin tabulature or musical notation?

    I believe all the tunes they sell are in standard notation.

    This is a beautiful tune, they used it for the National Parks soundtrack, does anyone know who is playing the mando?

    I believe that it's Jay Ungar. He plays an old 20's A4 paddlehead mandolin.

    Ha...that’s a “duh” on me for sure, I never thought it was Jay playing. Beautiful sounding mando and playing. Thanks!

    I downloaded the sheet music for The Blue River Waltz and recorded it.
    In the version of Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, Molly plays the chords on a steel string guitar using flatpicking technique. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adb603oJuoU
    But I'm the world's worst flatpicker, so I grabbed my classical guitar and picked some simple chord arpeggios.
    Thanks FrDNicholas for mentioning this tune, thanks Jim for the link to Jay's website and thanks Ian for resurrecting this thread.
    The Blue River Waltz is a wonderful tune!

    I like this a little better on mandolin, though I'm partial to Ungar's Ashokan Farewell on fiddle. Thanks for sharing this one.
