Here's a sheet arrangement, fairly close to Jay and Molly's original, of their great tune "Lovers' Waltz".   I had been fairly certain there was a scored version somewhere on the forum, but, dashed if I can find it - apologies if there is a version somewhere already...

Suggested chords for guitar (or as a second violin part indication for improvised harmony) are shown as well.

Enjoy...  

oh - I have this on MuseScore, so if anyone wants the .mscz file, or a .musicxml export for other editors, just ask...

And here's a take on it, on my fake-viola.... (with an occasional minor excursion from the sheet, but then again, that's fiddling for you)

Very cool. I too very much like that tune. Cool with your "fake" viola. LOL

Thanks for the share!!!

Thanks for the feedback folks @HP @GregW @Mark @x Coach @Mimi Aysha and @Fiddlerman, glad you like the posted sheet - hope you find it useful.

I've had that tune running around in my head for a good number of weeks now, and I finally got round to an initial play-through (well, with a number of dry runs at it before recording - so better to come as time goes on !) 

It deserves a lot more than I have so far been able to give it, and it really is open to all sorts of subtle embellishments - as the master himself clearly does - I'm sure most of those who are interested will have already found this - if not - here it is anyway
