Yes, I see that video now. Pekka is really great comedian! 😄

I don’t know that waltz from Vihti, which he plays in both of these videos. He didn’t say it has a special name, but maybe I can find it out if I do some searches.🤔

I had some waltz on my mind earlier today, which I should post here, but I can’t remember it anymore... I will get back to it when I remember it again. 

About the Christmas, I love it! It’s so nice when you can bring the christmas tree in and listen to christmas songs all day long. There is one special radio channel where they play only christmas songs, I usually listen to it when I’m at work. 
My Christmas will be perfect, if Santa could bring some new cello sheet music for me! 🤭

So you found that on your phone and I can't find anything like that (anywhere on the page) from my laptop! 

I'll have to check on my phone, later. 

 

@Ilona -

Can you print out some cello sheet music if Santa posts it here? (lol)

So, what sheet music would you like from Santa?

Oh, I didn’t notice that earlier!

I got Bach’s Cello suites and one book with Finnish cello pieces from Santa. 😊

I have played so much only classical music, that I would also have liked for example some film music. I was actually hoping sheet music for Schindler’s list main theme but maybe Santa didn’t had it...🤔 
I like also those Celtic/Scottish/Irish tunes you have posted to another threads. 🤗 I’m not sure if Santa knows about those...

(edited - fixed link)

@Ilona -

Thank you SO MUCH! 

That is a very beautiful waltz and it's going on my list to learn!

Maybe this will keep you busy for now?   

You can download or print a free copy from here. 

Schindler's List - Cello

Let me know of specific titles of any of the other tunes and I'll see what I can find. 

Hope you have a Happy New Year!

@Ilona -

Did you find a copy of Schindler's List for Cello?  I fixed the above link. 😊

 

@Gordon Shumway - 

I finally broke down and ordered a used copy of the book you suggested back up in Post No.16 - "A Little Couple - Dancemusik"  400 Waltzes, Polkas, Tangos, Hambos, Zwiefachers and other traditional dance tunes - transcribed, edited & chorded by Peter Barnes. 

It arrived last evening & it's a HUGE book - glad it's spiral bound. 

Haven't had a chance to go thru everything, but I really like what I've seen so far! 

Some good Nordic music that I don't have and the Zwiefachers are very interesting with their changes between ²/₄ & ³/₄ time. 

I don't want to completely get off topic here, but probably what surprised me the most was the large number of waltzes, from Venezuela! 

Was excited to see "The Teddy Bear's Picnic", too.

Thank You for suggesting this book!

It's not really about breaking down, Emily, it's about waiting for one to become available at a sane price.

This pair of books has been recommended, possibly on vcom, can't remember, but it's too expensive for me, and I've already got other fiddle books.

Here's another GREAT Tutorial from Emelie Waldken - my kind of tune, from Skåne, Sweden

Vals efter Lasse i Lyby - Swedish melancholic waltz - Scandi Folk Tune

 

I've had this one book-marked fro some time - it's a Vals from Nils Olof Söderbäck & Peter Michaelsen, on their "Kvarnresan" (Journey to The Mill) - Rural Swedish Fiddle Music, album.  

Enviken Vals in Dm

...some great polskor on this album, too!
