This tune was inspired by the killer whales off of Vancouver Island in Canada. Their spectacular dance which celebrates the kll of another whale pod far away is both awe inspiring and terrifying at the same time. Hope you like the yin-yang of this tune. There are some varations to the theme which I haven't tabbed out yet. E-mail me if you want a copy.

Five stars for you!  Say, I admire your ability to play waltzes on the banjo, 3-picking, no less.  I have always thought of waltzes as separating the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls because they are more demanding when it comes to expressiveness.  Your banjo's setup, tone ring and all, yields as long a sustain as a banjo can muster, and you leverage that well in the slides and the cadences.  The foray into the minor key on this piece was really choice, and showcases your ability as a composer.  Keep up the good work, and thanks for sharing it with us.  Keep that up and you will soon find yourself on my Favorite Musicians list.

A great tune, beautifully played. Me wondering if I could get to learn it. I'll certainly email you for a tab if I've not left it too late, it being a while since you posted it,thanks again, Edwin (Grumps)

I love this tune, I have the tab but it's incomplete, and I'm not smart enought to figure it out.
I wonder..... any chance Chris?
