Posting a recording here is a lesson in humility.
But I'd like to share too, such as it is. :bye:

Hello Classitar,

Expect smiles from Australia! (It's Aussie Rules Grand Final weekend!)

I was introduced to this way back in primary school and always found the lyrics extremely sad. The music is very pleasant and it sounds lovely on your guitar—thank you for sharing this!

Best wishes, V :D

More than smiles... my team just won by over 100 points! :shock:

This is just great Classitar... I really like the arrangement, and you play it beautifully :flowers:
This is a real treat for me and you can be sure it will 'do the rounds' over here :chitarrista: :casque:

Thank you so much :flowers:

Joy in the music

Never, ever give up!... I leave my songprint on your heart.

Hi Classitar,

I really liked your performance of this tune and your lovely arr., really simple and beautiful! :)

At the end of the track (about 1:39) I hear the faint sound of a bird cooing or an owl hooting, do you have a pet or maybe you recorded this outside? I see you live in North Carolina and I know there's all sorts of birds there including owls. Well I think it adds a nice nature/natural ambience that suits this tune perfectly! :D

Thanks for sharing this,

Raymaker

Thanks all, yes I really love the simple melodies as well as the masterworks - not that I can play them!
Thanks for pointing that out Raymaker, It was the middle of the night - I'm no expert on birds but it sounds like it could be a Ninox-Strenua or Ninox-Scutulata :bye:

hey owl. what do u reckon, should waltzing mathilda be officially raised to a higher level then simply a folk song. something like a co-national anthem with advance australia fair? what you reckon?
