Default Re: Waltzing Matilda

I'm fairly certain I learnt to play Waltzing Matilda back in the early 80s when I was learning in South Australia...



I play it now and again over here in the UK, played it on request for an AIF plaque unveiling earlier this year.

REPLY:I have the sheet music in my collection and have it filed under incidental music along with things like "Happy Birthday", ie tunes that are normally not played on the pipes, but can bring a smile to the faces of audiences in some circumstances. The sheet music is available on a google search. I have never heard it played by any pipe band, only by some larrikin pipers (myself included).Cheers all!

The famous lyrics
"Oh Sargent Major Shearer
Bring the target nearer
I canna see the target
It's so far awa'"
were improvised by men in the trench, yes?
WWI era tune?
