Help me find this Waltz?

Hi,

trying to get the name of a waltz - the beginning chords are very similar to Montagne - E - E/G - B7

I've heared Mr Blagden doing the tune - but cannot find the mp3, which I think used to be on this site.

Is "Valse des Niglots" ?

yeah I would guess Valse des Niglos as well - I have attached the Trio Ferret version below.

No, not that one!

I'll try and give you the little intro ( am at work so am doing from memory )

_____0__0______0__0____________________________
_____0__0______0__0____________________________
_____0__0______0__0_______2__2_________________
_____2__2______2__2_______1__1_________________
_____2__2______2__2________________2_3_2_0_____
_0__________3__________2__2__2_____________3 2 0

repeat, then into melody

That's a pretty generic intro for any waltz in E minor, so it's probably called "Valse de Wasso" :D

the only waltz Stu has posted here that would fit the bill is Valse des Niglos, but Thrip is right that people playing Valse a Wasso also sometimes use the intro. See below:

______________12_13_11_12___________________________________

any way of giving note values for those notes? any idea where you've heard it before? I think I have everything Stu has posted here and it's not among those.

Provided it's OK with Stu.

yes it is indeed - once I heard the melody I recognized it. I was thrown off because it doesn't use that intro and is not in Eminor.

Excellent! - got there in the end.

I just found out where I heared it - on the Quecumbar website.

Thanks.

Hi
Well!....i'm flattered;Yes its a Dorado waltz which i fell in love with when i heard Titi Demeter ripping thru it on Stefan Hahl's stand at Samois 2003.The best version is by Samson Schmitt on his solo cd.
I managed to work it out by ear and of course its in B minor.Its a great waltz i think and definitely more of a jazz waltz than a musette.
Its quite straight forward apart from that tricky c major arpeggio lick at the end of the A section.To play it at the required speed isn't easy.
Anyway,glad i turned you on to it.
Cheers
Stu
