I wrote this tab down in soundslice for easier practice. Classical notation is incorrect, i can not read notes.
Nice job on Soundslice dikkeorc!
Here's a quick and dirty backing track using Band in a Box. Apologize in advance for any errors.
Probably all correct as it is note for note the same as in Romane's book 'Impair & Valses'.
@pmg Thank you for the track!
@Chris Martin I got this tab from the web a while ago so it might very well be a scan of that book. I cannot seem to find any place to buy this book you mention though, is it no longer being pressed?
@dikkeorc The impair & valse book might no longer be available other than the secondary market. I see Michael has an old listing here but is "out of stock." I seem to remember that the CD had digital files of the tab/sheet music in addition to the extra playback tracks of each of his recordings. I may be wrong on this as I borrowed it from a friend almost 20 years ago and still have the print outs of the tunes. Anyone confirm that the disc has actual digital files in addition to the sound recordings?
@billyshakes I did some searching and it is indeed only available second hand, most websites selling it do note that there are scores/notations on the CD that are accessible trough a PC disk reader. It also says so on the back cover (see image below). I marked it in paint ?
Thanks for the verification. There are some very classic waltzes on there. It is worth the purchase!
The Romane book is very useful if you are into the classic GJ waltz tunes. Dolores, La Gitane, Niglos and Passion and others. Yes the CD does have printable tab files, I wondered why as it came with the book, unless maybe the CD was originally sold separately without the book? Interestingly the CD also lists in the tab contents Montagne Ste Genevieve but a click on that gives the message that publisher Warner/Chappells refused permission although the audio track is included. No matter, that is already probably the best known of the waltzes anyway. Yes, if you ever find one second-hand it is fun book to dive into.
Next, back to my attempts to get Dolores up to Tchavolo speed.
