Thanks for listening @Fatcat. If you're interested, I posted another version of the tune on a full-size dulcimer as a medley with Black Hawk Waltz .
I love waltzes and love your arrangement, Dusty. Your playing is so beautiful! Thanks for sharing it.
Dutch, in my response to your initial comment below, I linked to the Everything Dulcimer tab archives where you can find tablature by Ron Zucherman. It is not exactly the way I play it, but it's pretty close.
Thishttp://everythingdulcimer.com/tab/index.php#W should work, Dutch.
How does one go about getting the tab for the Westphalia Waltz?
Thanks so much, Anne, Janene, and Lexie. The funny thing is that this audio clip is over 2 years old, but if you remember our old site you know there was no dicsussion space for audio files, so it's nice to be able to read your encouraging comments now. It is also a good reminder of how much nicer this new site is than the old one.
Very pretty, beautiful playing Dusty.
Divine. Love this tune Dusty, and you do it perfectly.
Hey Dutch ...
(strumelia edit: link to a copyright-protected tab from Bonnie Carol's book removed.)
Very nice Dusty...
It is not hard to reach me. You can send me a personal message or follow the website listed on my homepage and contact me there. Of course, you can always leave a message on one of my audio or video posts!
I do not have tab for my arrangements of these songs, though if I put anything together I'll post here again with links. The version of Westphalia Waltz found on the ED tab archives by Ron Zucherman is close to what I play here. I tend to play arpeggios (meaning the notes of a chord one-at-at-time) rather than just strum, but the left-hand is mostly the same. Ashokan Farewell is a copyrighted song by Jay Ungar. You cannot find free tablature for it. I learned the song from a version by the Jay Ungar and Molly Mason Band . I got the melody from Jay's fiddle and the chords from Molly's guitar. i have been told that there is a dulcimer arrangement of the tune in an instructional book by Bonnie Carol .
How can a person obtain the tab for Dusty Turtles version of the Westphalia Waltz and the Ashokan farewell? Have been unable to make contact with Dusty Turtle him self.
