Today, I was joined by Ben Alexander, a really cool cowboy music guitarist and singer. I asked Ben to join me for Fiddle Tune a Day a while back, and when he showed up, he was PREPARED.
He had gone through my previous Fiddle Tune a Day tunes, and made a list of tunes that he liked, that I hadn’t played yet. And, The Waltz You Saved for Me is one of the tunes that was on his list. And, it was a tune that I had heard lots of times, and never really played before.
But, it’s such a cool tune, and so pretty that we played it, and I think it was a good decision. What do you think?
