This was a popular song in the late fifties/early sixties in the Netherlands. The words are a nostalgic look on pre war Amsterdam, in spite of having moved out, hearing the lyrics still bring up some emotions..... I played it as an instrumental here. It's a musette waltz, similar tempo, but bouncier than it's Viennese counterpart.

The first 4-tuner piece I wrote after installing 4 Keith tuners on my Iida 233, they're on the RB-1 now.... Timing is a bit shaky here and there, but you'll get the general idea of what I had intended to play..... Tab is in my Photos/ Tabs

I wrote this one for my Elly. You're hearing my RB-1, still in the state I got it. Worn frets, wrong bridge and not yet a Huber ring in it. The co-star is my D-28.

Probably the only recorded version ever. It's live so not anywhere near perfect, but I thought I should still put it up. It's my latest 4 tuner piece. Players are: Paul van Vlodrop: mandolin, Peter Broekhuysen: guitar, Elly Beurskens (my better half): bass and me on the RB-1.

My take on playing this one in in D from G-tuning. Including funny rhythmic 'jumps' Made this (slow) version for teaching purposes. Tab is in my Photos/Tabs section.
