Hi peeps - this is an AJ Weidt tune called El Dorado (Tango Foxtrot) which I cannot do justice - but hoping to encourage more beginners to post what they are practicing - and also anyone who knows a good tango tune!

Hello,

Sounds good, do you have an arrangement for this tune?

Cheers,
Danny

Carrie--

Perhaps you didn't play "El Dorado" to perfection, but you have more than done it justice.

Daniel--

I have a copy of this tune that I could scan for you. Just PM me.

Thanks guys. I do love AJ Weidt's tunes both for 5string and tenor. It's been a struggle to learn this one; I seem to collapse by part 3 :)
Here is the score

Hi Carrie,
I wanted to let you know that I'm trying "El Dorado" almost every day because of your post.
This is a really good score and wanted to thank you again for sharing.

Hey thanks Thomas. AJ Weidt wrote some great tunes for banjo - hope you make good progress with it. Another great one he wrote is 'My Lady Jazz'.

Good on you Carrie for playin' El Dorado, it's a new one on me, and I enjoyed it. Playing these 3 part type songs is'nt easy, and this ones no exception. I can hear improvement in every video you post, keep up your good work. ..... Don.

Thanks Noah and thanks for the encouraging words Don - luckily we still have Eddy's treasure-trove of videos to help with our learning journey.
