By the way, this will be the song for my next compilation. I’ve already made the metronome videos at our speed (95 BPM), including both harmony versions. Go ahead and get started on it; I hope a lot of you are able to participate!
John, your fiddle is sounding super duper on this tune. I always still worry about the flight it took up here at the camp. I didn’t see it, but understand it did crash. My fiddle is sounding good with the summer humidity. It has some terrible days in the winter 5 & 10% humidity we have. But, you do sound like you have a genuine Stradivarius on this one, or better yet a Del Jesu, which tends to specialise with greater than Strad tones on the G & D strings.
Am practicing it on my viola with fiddle strings. Lovely piece! Not familiar with it but it’s a beauty! Have added it to my daily practice but probably won’t have a handle on it for a couple years. I’m still hoping to make Ashoken Farewell sound decent and how long ago was that? Soldier’s Joy still is rarely played without a serious goof either. Guess that I’m just a tad behind here!
just learned this one, my first bgd lesson, (intermediate version only, no harmonies) also my first waltz. I’ll try to post in the lions den tomorrow. it was not too hard cuz I have a recording of Natalie MacMaster playing it, and already know how it sounds. I’m also adding some of her variation, when simple enough. anyway, this is a great tune and a great lesson!
