In the early seventies I started playing my first organ.
It was a Hammond Piper. It is long ago.
I made "Oldtimer´s waltz" as a tribute to that time.
Hope you like it. Your feedback is welcome. :-)

Kind of drags. At 3 minutes this would have been fine. At almost 5, it's just too long especially since it's really just the same thing over and over. A bridge might have broken it up a bit. The musical idea is pleasant enough and the arrangement does build throughout, which helps, but musically it's too repetitive for a slow song like this at the length it is.

Hi wagtunes,
thanks for listening.
I must think to shorten the song a littel bit or I make a transposition at the end. :-)

Yeah, something to break it up a little.

I made now some experiments with the song. But I was not so happy with the results.
At last I added now a kind of wandering synth starting from 3:20.
I hope that it is now a little bit more interesting. :-)
