Notes: Another lovely little waltz by Phil Cunningham, the British folk wizard, featuring a little bit of single stringing, some interesting pushes and a nice set of chords in the key of G. I hope you enjoy it. [I love waltzes. me!] Martin

Martin, I have to say that we both share the same tastes in music, I love Phil Cunningham / Aly Bain stuff, Years ago I bought "The Phil Cunningham Collection Volume 1" book and love every tune in it including Miss Rowan Davies, for waltzes I think "Waltz of the little girls" sounds good on the Banjo although i'm not sure of the composer...keep 'em coming Martin.

Thanks Owen. Yes it's a very pretty tune and I decided to attempt an arrangement of it after a couple of people started playing it at my session in Hereford. I wasn't sure whether it was going to translate well to the 'jo because if you want to preserve the flavour of all the intricate pushes that lurk within the structure, there is little room for rolling. However, I did manage to bung in a forward roll or two along the way, just to keep everyone happy (you can't have a banjo arrangement without a couple of forward rolls now, can you? ;-) ) and the proof of the pudding is in the eating - I have tried taking this arrangement out a couple of times with a strong guitar backing and it seems to work really well, so there's lovely. Hats off to Phil Cunningham for another great tune! Mart

Blake, I've practiced this many times over until I got the timing just right. Congratulations on a beautiful arrangement of a lovely waltz. One of the most pleasing arrangements I've seen amongst the tablature on the banjohangout.

Thanks FC, for your kind comments. I'm glad it hit the spot! It is a beautiful tune, to be sure. If you like Phil Cunningham's tunes, try my arrangement of his waltz "Frank McConnell's Three Step". That's another cracker! Cheers, Martin
