Gardenia Waltz is one of the prettiest (and hardest) waltzes that I play. Johnny Gimble can write a heck of a tune. The guitar chords to Gardenia Waltz are especially beautiful, and Brent Hawley just loves playing them – so much so that he asks me to play it just about every time we play a show. I can’t say that I blame him.
Tonight, we were supposed to open for April Verch, and I was going to play today’s fiddle tune with April, but she got sick, and had to cancel out on the show, AND on the fiddle tune. I was pretty bummed to miss out on playing with April, and getting to watch her show, but I did have a lot of fun playing a full show with Brent Hawley and Jim Abraham in April’s absence.

Thanks, Patrick. It’s one of my favorites too. Johnny Gimble really knows how to write a waltz.
