@Gordon-Hardy Thank you! It makes me smile to think the tune made you feel like dancing. My mom is a very humble person-- she was a very good church pianist and singer in her day-- and has always been a good influence in my life.
Robin, there's nothing quite like an old time waltz. I love the slides. This tune makes me want to shake a leg out on the dance floor. Thanks for sharing. I don't know your Mom but I think she would be proud.
Well for what it's worth the slides didn't jump out at me as anything like 'overdone'.
@Strumelia Thank you! I hope I don't overdo the slides; it seems, though, a noter is made for emphasizing them, using them as a major feature of a tune. I think they help create mood well-- hope so, anyway!
How lovely and graceful! Mark's accompaniment is so beautiful as well.
This piece is a story in itself, like the reflections of a lifetime- starting out in childhood sweetness... the A part has that turn that's full of thought. The B part soars with dignity, then that little edgy tag near the end of each part that reflects challenge... but all comes around in the end.
@Kevin-R @Irene @Dusty-Turtle @Ariane @Val-Hughes @Terry-Wilson Friends, I'm glad you liked our little tune-- thank you for the gracious comments! My mom has been through so very many difficult times-- I see her in decline now-- and wanted to honor her with a tune.
Robin, I sure enjoyed your song. Your use of the noter is so very artistic.
Thank you for sharing.
It just keeps getting better. Very very nice.
VERY lovely, Robin - with beautiful guitar harmonies of your husband.
So tasteful and precise. So calming. Just beautiful.
I'm sure Jan 5 has some significance for your mom, but I would call this tune "Serenity."
I'm so glad you posted this. Thank you.
Robin, that was very cool of your sliding....and waltzing and playing music with your husband. I'm smiling writing this....I'm going to have to try making a long slide on some of my music. thank you for this one. aloha, irene
Robin, this was wonderful! I loved it. So nice.
