Here is my arrangement of Waltzing Matilda by Christina MacPherson.
This tune is fairly simple although I will offer some performance notes none the less.
I play the song expressively and with a fair bit of rubato (probably too much rubato
). I also try and let the notes ring as much as possible. Unfortunately the app I used to create this sheet music and tab doesn't offer a lot of editing options so I haven't been able to show how long to hold the notes for (especially the bass notes). Therefore as a rule of thumb, the bass notes should be held until the next bass note.
Here is a link to a recording I did of this a couple of weeks ago: viewtopic.php?f=39&t=83917
I've actually worked on the arrangement a bit more since I recorded so this version is ever so slightly different. Still I hope the recording gives you a sense of how I play this.
Having said all that, feel free to play it any way you see fit. I'd love to hear how others approach this and to see if/how this simple arrangement evolves.
