This is a pleasant little two-part waltz. The two most difficult aspects of this waltz are the timing (as with most old time waltzes) and a few high notes. The B part goes up to a high C, and sometimes up to a high D. The B part also features slides down from a high D or C on the first string. In these slides, slide down quickly to a G and then lift your finger to play the subsequent open E.
