Josefin's Waltz in G goes down to low B and C.

I haven't got a low C so am having problems with these two bars near the end of the second part - | C2 D2 C2 | B,2 D2 G2 |

I've tried a few alternatives one of which sort of works.

Any suggestions?

Here's a Session version that's close to what I've picked up by ear - there's also abc version in D, but I prefer it in G.

X: 5
T: Josefin’s
R: waltz
M: 3/4
L: 1/8
K: Gmaj
|: D2 G2 A2 | B2 d2 c2 | B2 A2 G2 | D4 E2 | C3 C C2 | E2 G2 F2 | E6 | D6 |
D2 G2 A2 | B2 d2 c2 | B2 A2 G2 | D4 E2 | C3 C C2 | D2 F2 G2 | A6- |[1 A6 :|[2 A2 ||
|: B2 c2 |\
d2 B2 d2 | g4 f2 | e6 | d6 | c2 e2 d2 | c2 G2 A2 | B3 c B2 | A2 B2 c2 |
d2 B2 d2 | g4 f2 | e6 | d6 | c2 e2 d2 | c2 G2 A2 | B3 c B2 | A2 B2 c2 |
B2 A2 G2 |F4 G2 | G6 | C2 D2 C2 | B,2 D2 G2 | F3 E F2 | G6- |[1 G2 :|[2 G6 |]

Raising the C and B an octave is the usual approach and in this case doing so sounds completely plausible.

Thanks Mr G - I'm aware of going up an octave and I think that works with this tune if played at speed or with an instrument with a lower range but as a slow tune it sounds odd to me.

This is such a lovely tune, and I've never known the name of it, so thanks!

How about this for a last line:

B2 A2 G2 |F4 G2 | G6 | G2 F2 E2 | D4 G2 | F3 E F2 | G6- |[1 G2 :|[2 G6 |]


(PS I've been a way for a long time, and it feels a little creepy to just jump back in like this, so I feel the need to acknowledge that and say "hi.")

I personally find the middle-Cs in the "A" part to be more awkward. Without a C-key, what is the suggestion for playing these?

(and Hi Shannon)

Without a C key cross fingering is the only option but I've decide to miss them out in the A part.


After playing around with the tune I think this is the best solution for me when playing solo.

In the 'A" part I stay on the low E note into the 5th bar - shortening it by taking a breath or tapping the E, I find that sounds better than jumping up to the C

DGA|B d c|BAG|D2 E|E3|EGF|E3|"D"D3|

In the 'B' part |CDC|B,DG| - I find that |cdc|B,DG| works ok
