Cricket inspired me for some old time. So here we go….May 14, 2017 at 10:51 PM #48689
Angela, this is great! Thanks for posting. The drones and double stops sound great. I would say the next step is to speed it up and really focus on the right-hand rhythm. You are playing the nashville shuffle for the most part, which is perfect, so just work on really driving it. Wonderful video!May 15, 2017 at 7:09 AM #48699
Wow…that sounds awesome, Angela! Your shuffles are so smooth and clean! I really like it…you’re inspiring me…🎻🎻🎻🎻🎻🎻🎻!May 15, 2017 at 7:53 AM #48701
Angela, that was wonderful, loved it!!! 🙂May 15, 2017 at 4:13 PM #48710
Nice job Angela. Always liked that song.May 17, 2017 at 10:02 PM #48771
Yayyyyyy ! Yahoo ! Great Angela ! Just super bien fait !May 18, 2017 at 10:33 AM #48792
Thanks everybody. I’m trying to decide if I like it slow and lonesome (like Stuart Duncan plays it for Cold Mountain movie) or fast and peppy.
I think I’m stuck in between the two. Not sure how to go one way or the other.May 18, 2017 at 12:19 PM #48796
When facing such a dilemma, I personally choose the slower style, probably 95% of the time…unless somebody wsnts to dance, which has been the exception, in my case. When somebody does wanna dance, or when for whatever other reason I kick up the speed ( other players, mainly), I leave out half the notes and lots of the bowing stuff…just to whiz through any Ol way I can keep up…to me, st least in my own personal, limited experience…I gotta leave off the good stuff for the sake of speed…I realize there are many who can speed along and not lose a thing. But then, my ears can’t hear that fast…lol. I’ve always thought this, then, grandson wanted me to try to work up a Mario Game musical piece onto an MP3 from my recording machine…well, I did, but my natural pace is just slower…I sent it to him and he loved it…maybe the fast one is good for the hectic nature of the game, but what he told he was he liked listening to my slide down MP3, because he could hear what was going on…same thing I always say. Maybe slow ears just run in the family…lol. But there’s my opinion for ya…absolutely no charge…but…while you’re busy making up your own mind about this, I’ll be waiting to hear what you call me up with…it’s such a great tune and I’m sure, as always, you’ll find the right speed and style that will make it sound just right!May 18, 2017 at 12:22 PM #48797
Oh gosh…my iPad always changes around my words…no, no…you don’t have to call me up…lol…waiting to hear what you come up with…on the Lion’s Den Forum…lol…crazy iPad…I guess it’s more sensible to proof read before you submit…but…well…I never do.May 18, 2017 at 10:23 PM #48813
I agree with Cricket — slower is generally better when you are playing solo. Keep the rhythm steady and the notes clear; that is more important than maintaining an impressive tempo. You sound great! This is on Arwen’s list of celtic tunes, so I hope to teach it soon.
