Looking for a viola cleft copy of the famous Tennessee Waltz. I have been able to get "part A" down by ear, but not the ending. (Do waltzes have part Bs?).

Hey Steve @Ripton - I don't have such a thing - but it should be real easy for me to throw up a quick score sheet for yah.   I just play it by ear, in the key of D (on fiddle).

When I play it on viola, I just use the same physical fingerings (i.e. play in the same position, on the "same positioned string" - so D on fiddle has become G on viola) - so I'm playing it 1/5th lower.   This is fine for soloing, not much use for playing with others in the original key of D.   [ I only do that, simply because the viola strung fiddle I have is just for fun really, it's not a real viola, I just like to hear the sound of it from time to time! ].   

Leave it with me - I'm on a new laptop and I don't have MuseScore handy - it's downloading as we speak - once I've got it in about another 30 minutes I'll score up two versions in alto clef for yah - one in key of D (which is what I believe it is normally played in), and another in G (which is my own default for playing it on viola)....  and I'll just post either an image or PDF here......

Back later....

EDIT: LMAO - just noticed - been a member since November 2014 - this is my first post !!!  As I said - my viola adventures are just for fun....

I play it the same as Bill

Yup, thanks for bringing them over Ripton - as I mentioned elsewhere - I haven't had sufficient posts here yet to permit attachments.  Thanks for sharing them back here for everyone...
