Thank you everyone for the nice comments.smile

It's been great listening to all of the different waltzes, and I hope we'll get to see some more in here.

Good job Robert.
Thanks for the post. Wasn't that the Swedish cook piece from the Muppets?

Seems more like a polka, that could be the next group project. We could all dress up as swedish chefs and play your arrangement of this piece....all in favor?!

Hi all,

Here is my late bit to the party (late and not good at all. Well, I tried). The tune is On The Hill Of Manchuria, a Russian Waltz, referring to the Battle of Manchuria on that hill.

Thanks all,

Robert

 

 EDIT:

The first is full of mistakes, so I did another take today. Still with some mistakes, but I think it's a bit more at presentable level to members.

Here is me playing "Try to Remember", from the 1960 musical play "The Fantasticks", apparently the longest-running musical ever.  The song was a hit in three different recordings by various artists in 1965.  I had sort of forgotten about the song until @AndieKae effectively reminded me when she mentioned the play and I looked it up and found that that's where the song came from.  My favorite version was done by The Brothers Four.

I made the accompaniment as a guitar piece in MuseScore, and this is my first accompanied recording.  Thanks to @DanielB and @ratvn for technical and musical help with that.  I intend to post a detailed description of how I did it.

BTW, thanks to @Steve , @DanielB, @KindaScratchy, @Fiddlestix, @ratvn, and @coolpinkone  and anyone I've forgotten for the attaboys on my other recording.

I'm uploading it to soundcloud because that will start playing without having to download the whole thing.   I'm also putting it directly on fiddlerman.com.

I hope you enjoy it!

Kudos to both of you, @ratvn and @RosinedUp ! I enjoyed both performances very much.

I've always loved that song (Try to Remember), RU. It's perfect for this time of year with September only days away.

Ok, work has settled back down to a 40 hour work week, and everyone is back to healthy... and now I finally have time to post my meager contribution to the waltz party.  I still  have a lot of squeaks and squawk... but here it is.
