Waltz For Ron, was written in memory of Ron
Lankford in 2010. Ron Lankford from Roland Corporation, is one of those
"once in a lifetime" people you might be lucky enough to meet who
profoundly influences your life. The positive impact Ron had on me in the two
short years I knew him is only tarnished by how suddenly he was taken from us
in March 2010. Ron loved both acoustic and digital accordions and he loved
what Roland was doing for the accordion. Ron was also very passionate about
"passion in music." This little waltz is meant to be simple and
elegant, like Ron, and is dedicated to his memory, but also filled with the
passion that Ron so much appreciated about music.
This version is an accordion solo version with free bass intro and ending (#2 above).
