Lonesome Moonlight Waltz

This is my adapted version of the melody for ‘Lonesome Moonlight Waltz’ as played by Kenny Baker on his album ‘Kenny Baker plays Bill Monroe’. It’s a good exercise for all of us pickers, beginner to advanced, to go back to the fundamentals and study how the founding musicians of the genre played. I recommend this whole album as a launching point for studying instrumental bluegrass as every song shines in classic beauty!

In this video I play through the song, one A part and one B part, once through at a moderate tempo. I then break it down and play through the two parts slower in hopes that the viewer can easily review, pause, rewind, listen to and learn the melody.

Thanks for viewing!

Josiah
