Three waltzes from the Old Time/Bluegrass repertoire that fiddlers play. Of the dozens of American fiddle tunes Duck Baker has arranged for guitar, these are the only waltzes he has recorded. It’s not that Baker has any aversion to the tempo; he plays lots of jazz tunes in 3/4 and has composed dozens of originals in waltz time. But the waltzes in the American fiddle repertoire tend to be sweetly sentimental tunes, and it’s hard to not make them sound sugary on the guitar, in Baker’s view.
The newly added tunes are “Kit's Waltz” (from the 2019 release Plymouth Rock), “Midnight On The Water” (The Roots And Branches Of American Music, 2009), and “Lonesome Moonlight Waltz” (the 2011 record with Dakota Dave Hull When You Ask A Girl To Leave Her Happy Home)
