A new version of this tune from the great Joe Morley. I know that still sounds like a potpourri instead a waltz, but I guess it will a matter of time. The delta version of this tune will be on a tempo of 130...soon day I will get the final goal of 152.

Many problems in the part B yet, but I am working them :)

Hi German, The notes are flowing nicely under your fingers, but you mention that it doesn’t sound much like a waltz. Maybe I could suggest that you bring out the waltz rhythm by stressing the first beats of the bar more than the rest of the notes.

The Waltz  should have a strong:  ONE,two,three, ONE,two,three   beat.

Often throughout the piece you seem to be stressing the: one,TWO,THREE,one,TWO,THREE

Give the bass string a bit more attack and it will immediately start to “sound” like a waltz.

 I hate to say it, but play along with a metronome so that you don’t lose the beat 1

Thanks Ian...actually, I was using a metronome at the moment I was playing! :)  ...I guess it will be a matter of more practice...the delta version will be on a tempo of 140

German, I wasn't commenting on your timing by mentioning the use of the web metronome.

The link showed a particular metronome that I have found useful when practising as it shows the strong first beat in RED, so you can turn the click off and watch and stress the red beat!  

Playing along with it can be useful as with an ordinary metronome you can stumble over a beat and carry on, but with this one you have to be playing the correct beat at the correct click!

(a bit like playing with a metronome that "tings" a bell for the first beat...  hateful things!)
