I hate to say this, but what Fiddlers Waltz...I know at least three tunes that use that title.... if you could be more specific then I am sure one of us could help with your quest.

If you mean the Benny Martin tune, added to by Howdy Forrester, its in Craig Duncan's Mel Bay book of Master Fiddle Solos.

When looking for information about a tune, I use the "Fiddler's Companion" website. It provides lots of useful information and is the first place I visit when seeking information about a tune.

Is that the same as the Traditional Tune Archive? https://tunearch.org//wiki/TTA

There's a notice from 2012 directing you there, although the Fiddler's Companion still exists too.

Brian - yes, it is. I always preferred the Fiddler's Companion to the wiki style that is becoming popular lately. I don't know if the FC is kept updated since the move, though.

I prefer the Fiddler's Companion too, although I don't think its being updated at all. Also, there was once an easy link to convert abc files to notation, but concertina.net no longer has the "convert-a-matic."

I'm fortunate in that I use Tabledit and it will import abc files and convert to tab/notation without much, if any, futzing around.
