This is West Virginia fiddler Clark Kessinger’s nice version of the well-known waltz Over The Waves. There aren’t many drones and double-stops, so I haven’t prepared separate full and melody-only transcriptions. I have tried to represent the timing as accurately as possible, which led to the use of thirty-second notes. If you find these notes confusing, just treat them like grace notes. Kessinger played vibrato throughout the tune, denoted by squiggly lines to the left of notes to be played vibrato.
