Can anyone please transcribe or send me sheet music to "Wait So Long," by Trampled by Turtles? Thank you in advance.

From the thread you posted this request to yesterday, literally three posts before yours:



"If you eager violin players would take a moment to look around on this very thread, this very page, you would find this link.





ajacommerce.com/downloads/wait_so_long.pdf



But I suspect you create an account just to post. You only see the first page, can’t bother to wade through a few pages of “if you have this I would appreciate...” to find it. Or maybe you google further and find this link.



If you want more than what is printed, you'll have to look elsewhere. 

It’s not even complicated; use your ears folks.



You’re welcome. angel"



Please, do some reading before adding to a ridiculously long thread that is FULL of people requesting the same thing over and over.  No one's going to message you or anyone else about that.  And the sad part is that link, which maybe isn't enough for you, has been posted several times in that old thread.  TWICE ON THE PAGE WHERE YOU POSTED YESTERDAY. That thread would have been archived years ago if folks would read some rather than lazily post the same thing over and over.



Sorry if I come off as a little terse, but seriously...

There is no need to speak to me in a condescending way. I did in fact click on that link to the pdf, which only provides the first few measures of the song (which, if you had clicked on the pdf link yourself, you would have seen). Thank you for your unfriendly thirteen-line response indicating I need to "use my ears" and "look elsewhere", with font in caps locks, and a passive aggressive angel emoji. Don't treat complete strangers that way, its not how humans are meant to be to another.

I know what the link is, hence "which may not be enough."

Sorry again for being terse.

Got to agree Mary.

C C B. C.


Hmmm, Mary how about a little theory of the framework of the song?



a live version for example where the players can "improvise over the changes" youtube.com/watch?v=YTovORb24UQ



 



With this in the mind listening of the fiddle , a lot of the song is double stops during the four repeating chords, (F C G Am). Here's a table of the notes in those chords. Note that beginners could start by picking a row and play those single notes left to right and after getting familiar with each row start combining rows for the double stops.



 



Also the song is in the key of C so all the notes ever played are naturals. And as demonstrated by the fiddle solo as long as you keep moving quickly thru the scale you are good to go. The finesse is when you sustain a pitch it should be a note in the chord. BTW notice that a C note harmonizes all but the G chord. Of course this rule can be disregarded in order to create tension.



Finally slur up from the alphabetical letter before the notes with dots, the 3rd of the chord, for a common fiddle cliche'.
