Chopin's Gran Valse Brillante

video
Chopin was an excellent composer and performer. This has a very weird feel to it and was a lot of fun adapting from the piano to the banjo.  Enjoy!

Please remember that I am no trained classical musician. I play the melodies and then add my own flavor, style, and improv.  Improvising or making music up fresh, new, and on the spot is one of my favorite things to do. It was also a favorite of many of the great composers as it puts the player to the test to be flawless in the moment.
