Tahoe Winter Waltz

musician/member name: Dusty T
Duration: 00:02:36
An original tune (© 2020) I wrote shortly after a pre-Thanksgiving family trip to Lake Tahoe. One night it snowed several inches and I ventured out early morning to fetch some coffee and breakfast. I paused for a spell in the still morning air, admiring a pristine mountain lake surrounded by white-capped peaks with a fresh blanket of snow. I thought the view warranted a song, which I wrote upon our return home. I play it a little too fast here, so please listen slowly. :-)

So cool, Dusty.  We play exactly one tune in which we move between D and G so it's not a common thing.  It's neat you were able to work out such a good piece of music doing so.

Thanks, Robin.  The one thing I'm proud of with this composition is that the A part is in D but the B part is in G.  I started that accidentally, just following a melody I invented, but then I had to use the old noggin to figure a way back.
