The beautiful and small town Rättvik lies at the lake Siljan. Vidablik is situates high above where you can enjoy the late afternoon sun. Sometimes you can even watch vintage cars from up there. Or just playing nyckelharpa and drinking coffee. You’ll have to go away and think about it.

Rättvik Hambo is easy to play for Nyckelharpa, Viola or Violin. You can play it on and on and on … like a Mantra. Hambo is a traditional dance in Sweden as well in Europe and North America. Typically you play it with a strong accent on the first beat. The accompaniment should only represent a little help for the harmonies. If you use the tuning (high –> low) A D G C it is easy to play.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
