    With all those wonderful country-tinged waltzes that Frank keeps coming up with, I am inspired to try my hand on a few ones as well. This one is by the Canadian fiddler Andy DeJarlis (1914-1975), or "de Jarlis" as Wikipedia have it.

    1921 Gibson Ajr mandolin
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar


    I used a transcription by Alf Edwards, from an old ABC collection of his -- to please Simon, here it is:

    The warm sound of your Gibson suites the waltz very well, Martin.

    Many thanks for the kind words -- I am also working on another Andy DeJarlis waltz, which I hope to have up soon!

    Waltzes are becoming the tunes of choice in our group, I reckon. Nice job on this one, Martin.

    I’m catching up on a few waltzes…before I head out walking on the Anglesey coastal path…another fine one here, Martin.
