Here's a second waltz designed to be fun. I reckon it's about Grade 5. I'm wondering if it's performable so comments on this would be welcome. I'm just doodling, but if someone starts liking the music I may take the writing a bit more seriously.

Pardon me for the 'bump' but I was hoping for a comment on this one. It sure ain't Mozart and indeed it's trivial, but I wondered if it might be enjoyable to play.

Hi Peter,

Sorry, I only saw it yesterday. I know it can be a bit disappointing when people don't react.

Just played through it. It is a nice study. I had a bit of trouble connecting the first part (to bar 48) with the second part. I felt it would be nice to play the second part a bit more slowly.

Regards, Bert

Thanks Bert. The second part relaxes a bit but it shouldn't be slower. If it's difficult to make the connection or it seems a bit fast this is my fault - but it seems okay to me.

Partly I was wondering whether there's any call for this sort of thing. I can write superficial stuff like this but maybe there's enough pot-boilers around already.

I asked the same thing here some time ago, as I'm one of the other pot-boilers, if I understand the term correctly. The amount of pot-boilers may be the right answer. Probably the best solution is to just post and not care too much.

I think 'pot-boiler' refers to the quality of the work where something is just run-of-the-mill. I'm all too good at run-of-the-mill.

Hey, don't knock run-of-the-mill. It's the basic food of struggling intermediates. It keeps us hooked on the guitar: I'd have given up long ago without your sort of tuneful, lively and playable pieces. And anyway, how often do Carulli, Carcassi, Sor and the other greats reach the dizzy heights of musical quality?

So my answer to your 'wondering' is an emphatic YES. Keep boiling those pots (a metaphor I've never understood).

Its a delightful bit of fun Pete. I was brought up short by the fingering in bar 102 but overall thought it was fun, harmless and well worth putting out there.

Thanks for the encouragement. Much appreciated. More pot-boilers it is then...

Bar 102 is a bit odd but it allows the B in the bass to be held. Feel free to do it your own way.
