Hi,

Does anyone know the chords to the Valerian waltz?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks Martin

    This could be what your looking for after I "eyeballed" the melody line on the preview chart and listened to an instrumental on internet. Search "Waltz pour Valerie" and click on the link www.free-scores.com - This Waltz by Pascal Berthe.

    Thanks, I think I might have found what I'm looking for.

    Edit: Ok, after listening to this version a little more, first he is playing it in G, not in C as the jazz manouche grille indicated. It sounds like in bars 3-4 and again bars 19-20 he moves from the G6/9 to a G#dim. I think in bars 9-12, the rhythm player here is playing a line cliche from Am-Am(maj7)-Am7-Am6. Both are not against the simplified chart, but just give it a little more harmonic interest.

    =======

    I'm not at my guitar, but listening to this version with the grille from the post above seems to be about accurate. The chord in bar 11 sounds different from the one in bar 9, so it is either an inversion of Dm or it could be a different chord? Again, not at my guitar to figure it out at the moment.

    The camera focuses on Serge playing the melody for a good portion of time such that it might be pretty easy to figure out what he is playing to one so inclined.

    Here's another version I found on youtube. This is also in G and he just sits on the G chord for the four bars. Otherwise, looks like similar chords, but you can watch him fret them if that helps.

    Not sure, I've subscribed to him since a little while ago. All I know he's in Greece. Yeah, he's very good.

    One of my favorite channels, Antonis Arfanis, is also Greek. I guess they have a nice scene there
